FAQ

Here are quick links to the answers to some of the questions we get asked most frequently

  • How do I get my book published?

    You can research publishers and submit your book for consideration or you can publish it on your own (see Getting Published).

  • I've self-published a book - how do I get it distributed?

    For small publishers and self-publishers especially with just one book, doing it yourself is sometimes the only option. Read more about distribution.
