Unpublished Authors The struggle to get your work accepted by a traditional publishing house can be overwhelming. Authors can experience seemingly endless submissions to editors whose reasons for rejection may have nothing to do with the quality of work. Traditional self- publishing can offer a solution, but requires buying and storing hundreds or even thousands of copies of your book. However, self-publishing with Westview's print-on-demand services allows you to maintain your editorial integrity without having to invest in an inventory of pre-printed books.
Authors With New Works If you've already discovered the benefits of being self-published and have a new work, we can help you with high-quality publishing services. We also have one of the best author book purchase plans in the business.
Genealogists and Family Historians For a limited edition work, traditional small print runs can still be far too costly to permit publication of a genealogical work that would otherwise be a family heirloom. With our services, you can limit the copies printed to just enough to give to the individuals or libraries that would directly benefit from the publication. The digital file of your book is kept in electronic storage, so additional copies are always available, even if needed one at a time.
Authors Wanting to Reprint Existing Works You may have run out of copies of your work and need to reprint, but would prefer not to have to inventory thousands of copies just to get a reasonable cost per copy. With our print- on-demand services, there's no need to let your cherished work slide into the past.
Organizations Publishing Books as a Fundraising Event Thousands of organizations fund their activities by self-publishing cookbooks and local history books. The most prohibitive factor in running this type of fundraising event is the possibility that all the profits will be tied up in unsold copies. We eliminate this problem completely by using high-quality, print-on-demand services to manufacture only the copies needed to fill orders. Every single book the organization sells creates value.
Supplemental Educational or Motivational Materials Many consultants and educators sell books at seminars as an added value item. The typical seminar is rarely long enough to do more than outline concepts. Self-publishing a book detailing your ideas can further improve the participants experience and increase the author's net proceeds. With Westview Publishing, you can have just enough books printed for the current seminar, avoiding the need to inventory thousands of books.
Authors Whose Books Are Out-of-Print Resurrecting a once popular title can feel as impossible as raising the Titanic. We can make that process smooth, easy and cost-effective.
Authors of Children’s Books Color printing of low page count books can be very expensive in quantities under 1,000. With our new print-on-demand options, it is possible to print only a few hundred copies at a very reasonable cost per copy.
Authors Needing Pre-release Copies It is sometimes necessary for an author to develop a pre-release edition of their book for use in marketing and for review solicitation. With no minimum order size, print-on-demand is the perfect solution.
