. . . Refining the written word
Are you finding it difficult to attract a conventional publisher? Can't get your head around the complexities of self-publishing? Blue Gecko Books can help.
Each of the stages in the book production and distribution process will be managed by us.
Once we have refined your text, designed your book and formatted everything so it is print-ready, it will be outsourced for processing. The book will be printed on demand in response to individual or group orders. ‘Print on demand’ has enormous advantages as a way of achieving high standards while, at the same time, saving on the costs of a prior print-run and subsequent storage of copies.
Through the publisher’s access to global networks of wholesalers, booksellers and libraries, the book will be listed in all relevant catalogues and made available to purchase worldwide through online booksellers such as Amazon. It can also be ordered directly from bookshops.
Yes, it's like 'self-publishing' - but we do all the work. And you will never lose control over your content.
