Book Management

Book Management
 

As book managers, we oversee all stages of the publishing process, providing invaluable expertise in editing, design, marketing and distribution  Unlike traditional publishing, we charge a set fee, as opposed to a commission from book sales. Our authors also keep all their rights, including copyright.

One of the strengths of our Book Management programme is its flexibility; authors can choose which services they need, whether that is mentoring and editing, design and distribution, or marketing or promotion.
 

Advantages to choosing our Book Management service:

 

* Profiled in our yearly JM Agency Catalogue, which is mailed annually to over 300 publishers based in the UK and Ireland.

 

*Avail of a suite of professional services for writers, including developmental editing, book design and cover design.

* Stocked in a database used by thousands of bookstores and libraries worldwide, in addition to being stocked in a number of online platforms, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and more.

 

* Some companies force authors to choose between POD, (Print on Demand) or high-quality offset book production (used by publishers). We give our authors the option of having both luxury offset printing and POD, meaning they get the the ‘best of both worlds’.

I particularly want to thank my editor Jeremy Murphy for providing what was a very comprehensive and effective Book Management service. I was very impressed with his book design, both the beautiful front cover, and how his designer managed to integrate the various archival material I had, including both historical and family photographs, into the book. I was also impressed with Jeremy’s strategy to promote the book and bring it to a large audience. Our launch in the Arms Hotel Listowel exceeded my expectations, with us selling out of our initial print-run. Since the book's launch in May 2019, Jeremy has continued to explore new ways of selling and distributing the book, as well as bringing it to new audiences and markets.
