Hi,

I created a book for children with lots of graphics.. and I’m looking for big company to print, publish and distribute the book (I prefer to sell it to them than having a percent of the return).

Any suggestions?

Thank you :)

From what I hear Amazon is tearing chunks out of the publishers market. And they do so by treating their authors better than the big publishers, sharing more of the revenue and giving them more say in all aspects of the publishing process.

I just read about that yesterday and was quite impressed.

Now I know nothing about authoring or publishing, it’s just a coincidence that I read an article about it a couple of days ago…

Cheers

Chris

Thanks Chris,

Amazon maybe a good option but I prefer to sell it to a company so I don’t have to worry about shipping and get paid for each single book.

I wish there is a company can buy the rights for publishing and distributing the book from me!
