Speed to market.
With a big publishing house, the path to market for your book could take over a year. Our model flattens turnaround time from years to a couple months, depending on the needs of your project.
Exacting design and quality standards.
Many in your position consider self-publishing because they need to account for timeliness and control. But what they gain in speed, they usually lose in quality content, design, the hassle of distribution and fulfillment, and ultimately, profit. Because a good book can make the difference between having tremendous credibility and not having any, take advantage of our professional editing, layout and distribution. You know — the “make or break” factors for any book’s success.
Ease of distribution.
Our distribution channels are competitive with those of larger publishing houses and much wider and more robust than those available in the self-publishing world. We handle all U.S. and U.K. distribution, as well as fulfillment and monthly royalty payments. Want your book on Kindle? We do that, too. Our streamlined online distribution keeps costs to a minimum, and eliminates the need for multiple print runs and minimum orders by authors who want access to their books at cost. And if we don’t currently distribute with your outlet of choice, we’ll do the legwork to secure the relationship for you. If ever there was an argument against self publishing, this is it.

Marketing and publicity.
Your book or e-book can open up opportunities that showcase your in-depth knowledge. Because Channel V Books’ sister company Channel V Media is a full-service marketing and PR agency, we provide authors with an almost-exhausting list of PR and marketing solutions before and after the release of their book. Whether you want to build your platform up front, promote book sales after release, leverage your book for media and other opportunities, or all of the above, we can help you get the most from your work.
Profit and return on investment.
Sure, a book for you might be more about marketing than profit, but because our per-book profit is the highest in the industry — up to 60% of the list price for each book sold — sometimes it’s hard not to make money. (Not a bad problem to have, we know.) Because our distribution model eliminates the factors that deplete profit — multiple print runs, high minimum orders, agents, shipping & handling — on average, our authors are able to pay off their upfront investment with the sale of as few as 1,000 to 1,500 copies.
Books available to you at any time.
Channel V Books offers you access to as many or as few books as you need at any time. Want to provide books at your next conference or other live appearance? Want to send signed copies to your friends, families and earnest competitors? No problem.
No minimum orders.
You can order 1 or 10,000; ship to several different locations; whatever the case, we make it easy for you.
Skip the hassle of finding an agent.
We’ll work directly with you to ensure your book reflects who you are and what you stand for. Not to mention, you can keep the 15% you’d otherwise have to shell out to them on each book sold. And of course, if you’re already working with an agent, they’ll be pleased to know that they’ll get their cut monthly, rather than twice a year.
Don’t go it alone.
Your book and your reputation are too important. Contact us to find out how we can get started immediately and get your book to market fast. Already convinced? Great. Let’s skip the small talk: complete our submission form and provide us with your (full or partial) manuscript and a cover letter.
