“Hi, I’ve written a book and I’m looking for someone to get it in bookstores and do some marketing….” We receive many requests of this nature and each and every time we politely decline.
It’s not personal, it’s our business model.
Red Hill Publishing is not a publishing services company. One way to look at it is that we don’t offer services for self-publishers, we offer an alternative to self-publishing.
If you have written the world’s next bestseller, had it edited, typeset and the cover designed and are looking for someone else to take care of distribution and marketing, unfortunately Red Hill is not the publisher for you. In fact, if you read our publishing guidelines carefully you’ll note that we look for authors with existing non-retail channels to market.
