Will my book get into bookshops?

We have a marketing specialist and sales and distribution agreements in place across the UK. We cannot guarantee that your book will get into high street bookshops, because that depends on the strength of the individual book and the decisions of bookshop buyers. But we can promise that we will make the best book we can and will try to get it shops. You can rest assured that any British bookshop will be able to order it and it will be available online in the UK worldwide. So... we will do our best.

Will my book be on Amazon?

We cannot guarantee your book will be offered for sale by any outlet, because that is out of our control. But we will supply the bibliographic information for your book to online outlets, using standard industry channels, in the expectation that they would list it for sale. We just can't offer guarantees for the behaviour of third parties.

Do I get royalties?

Yes. Our authors get royalties on the sales of their books, as a percentage of the net receipts we receive from the book trade
