We have always been proud of the fact that even though we are based in South Africa, we have been able to publish work from writers all over the world, and have them available anywhere in the world.
However, a problem has been identified in the South African market. When South Africans want to order books from online stores such as Amazon, the shipping costs are usually more than the price of the books themselves. If they are lucky enough to find the books in our local bookshops, the prices are so high compared to local writers, that they are dissuaded from purchasing them.
No matter where they order it from, it is just too expensive.
This creates a roll-on effect for the publisher. Not only can their books not succeed in the South African market, but they had to reduce their royalties just to lower the retail price of their books.
And this is where we come in. Being based in South Africa, we are able to offer a publishing arrangement where we assist in bringing your books to South Africa, online and in bookstores, in a way that makes it cheaper for the readers and brings in more royalties for the writers.
We would love to represent you and your books here in South Africa. And in order for us to present this offer to you, we invite you to visit our International Relations page, where we set out our services and where you can complete and submit a query for our consideration.
So if you would like to know more about making your books more available to South Africans, feel free to let us know.
