Start with an outstanding book and push it to the next level
Because Writing is an Art, and Publishing is a Business.
The book market of today is more alive than ever and brimming with exciting new books. Authors and publishers are faced with stiff competition. For our books to stand out among the 600,000 to 1,000,000 books published annually in the U S alone, each book we accept for publication must be a gem—interesting, intriguing, entertaining, and unique in its own way.
We believe that every book is a business, and the publisher is the venture capitalist of your book's business. We invest in every book we publish, and we consider ourselves to be partners with the author in every publishing activity, including marketing. Each author must be an active participant in the marketing of his or her books.
- We never ask an author for money to publish.
- We continually work to find new venues to display our books.
- We work with our authors to publicize launches and book signing events.
- The author must build a platform, beginning with a website. We can help if you need it.
- The author must be active on at least two different social media sites.
- To maximize the benefit of publication, follow and share the posts of other S & H authors. Your followers will appreciate learning about other well-written, well-edited books of quality equal to or exceeding trade publishing standards.
