This page is designed to assist authors in the publication process and with the sale of their books.
Now, that your book is ready and slated for publication, the real work begins. Efforts need to be focused on the promotion of the book.
Once the book completes successfully the editing and production in-house-process is submitted for printing. About two weeks later, the printer reviews the submission of the files—he has its own requirements, which need to be met. Once the printer approves the submission of the text and cover files, he generates a proof. This is the last opportunity to review a digital file or a hard copy of the book. If this proof is approved by the publisher and author—no errors or glitches are found—it moves next to limited production.
The book at this stage is printed, but not published. The author and the review media receive ADVANCED copies of the book for review and promotion purposes only, four months before the actual release date.
Once the book is reviewed, on the release date—about 4 months after the proof is approved—the book goes to full distribution. This means the book will appear in B&N and Amazon and it will be available to every bookstore through the Ingram Digital Catalog. This catalog is used by B&N, Amazon, and all bookstores to acquire copies of the book.
Before the release date, books are available through us only.
