What is your publishing procedure?
See above and the Publishing Procedure Page.
What sort of books do you publish?
We consider any genre, with the exception of erotica. We particularly like publishing in the thriller, sci-fi, crime, horror, autobiographical and literature genres. For non-fiction we are interested in popular science, social studies, politics, history and local interest. We can also publish graphical books. If your book touches upon environmental or social themes, which may encourage the reader to make positive changes in their life or raise awareness over an important issue, then we are especially interested.
What makes Arkbound different from other publishers?
Where will my book be distributed?
Arkbound books can be distributed both online and offline. We can make your book available from Amazon and most other online retailers. For offline distribution we work with BookVault, Gardners, Bertrams and several other companies to make your books available in book shops across the world, which can also order copies directly. We have links with Waterstones, The Great British Bookstore, County Libraries and many others so that your book can not only be stored but effectively promoted (see below).
How will you promote my book?
Arkbound uses a number of different tools and techniques to get your book promoted. These include press releases to our expansive contact list, an exclusive partnership with Arch Communications, features and reviews on Arkbound’s media and our affiliates, book signings and readings, festivals and events, direct marketing materials (t-shirts, bookmarks, flyers, etc), digital marketing methods (elements of SEO and backlinks), plus some other stuff that we are keeping under wraps. In short, we leave our competitors in the dark ages when it comes to promotion!
Where are you based?
