Dear Authors

From having published thousands of books over the last few years, at we regularly get asked by authors about how to further increase sales of their books.

From our experience, we have found that if you have completed publishing a book but not distributed it yet then now is the ideal time of year to do this.

In the run-up to Christmas, people are increasingly buying from websites such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository and Waterstones. A book in distribution immediately opens up a wider range of availability on different sites that book readers use and love - especially when some of these larger sites incentivise customers with free postage.

It can take about 3 to 6 weeks for a book to enter wider distribution once you purchase and approve distribution, so now is a good time to distribute in time for Christmas.

To do this, if a published book is not already in distribution, then please login to, click Edit next to your book title and then the purchase book distribution button. Follow the very simple steps to pay online. Then, after payment made, click Edit next to your book title and the button to approve distribution and we'll get your book into distribution, and hopefully increasing sales as soon as possible.

Best wishes
