You’ve finished a manuscript, but you lack both the time to manage the publishing process, and the stomach for the business, legal and promotional details.
You’ve dreamed of publishing, but the traditional
method seems stuck in the past.
You’ve got enough going on without having to worry about supervising layout, making production deadlines and arranging for distribution and fulfillment: self-publishing simply isn’t for you. And traditional publishing involves the hassle of finding an agent that get’s you and, quite frankly, requires you to do all the promotional work for a per-book profit that makes it almost impossible to even break even. There must be a better way — and there is. Our model rewards the strength and marketability of an author’s manuscript with unheard-of profit margins and an almost unbelievably streamlined production and distribution process.
We’re putting an end to the adage, “If it sounds too good to be true, then...” It’s true. Other publishing methods are simply flawed; ours isn’t. Read on...
- You’re an expert storyteller
- You’re turned off by the traditional process.

- Meticulous editorial and high quality standards.
- Ease of distribution and availability.
- Profit and return on investment.
- Books available to you at any time.

You’re an expert storyteller,
who wants to focus on crafting great prose or poetry. The financial and logistical nitty-gritty of the publishing process leaves you cold.
You’re turned off by the traditional process,
of sending query letters and trying to find an agent. The prospect of making $2 to $3 a book (after your agent and large publishing house take their cuts), plus having to pay for your own publicity, is frustrating. Yet self-publishing is too time-consuming and restrictive. It’s not a big profit generator either and let’s be real here, passion projects are for those who don’t have rent to pay. (Our profit margin for authors is one of the best in the industry: up to 60% of your book’s list price.)
You love to write; you hate the business details.
Our in-house marketing, PR, editorial, and production departments manage the life cycle of your book from start to finish, and handle your monthly royalty payments and book distribution for the lifetime of your book. We keep you in the loop but won’t drown you with every last detail (well, unless you want us to).
Our designs stand out among competing books.
Our in-house production team knows print design and will work to make your book stand out, online or off.
Meticulous editorial and high quality standards.
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 and availability.
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 necessary to secure that relationship for you. If ever there was an argument against self publishing, this is it. See distribution outlets here.
Profit and return on investment.
Sure, this might be a passion project for you 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 send signed copies to your friends, families or worst enemies? 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 make sure you have freedom of choice and input at each step. Not to mention, you can keep the 15% you’d otherwise have to shell out to your agent 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.
A passionate project deserves
a passionate publisher.
Complete our submission form, attach your (full or partial) manuscript and a cover letter, and we’ll manage the process for you in a fair and streamlined way so that you can focus on what you do best.
