Mainstream Publishers

A mainstream publisher will publish your manuscript at their own expense. Although there are well over 100,000 books published annually in the UK by mainstream publishers, there are many reasons why such a publisher may not be able to take up your work.

Although you may feel there is a huge market just waiting somewhere 'out there' for the publication of your book, you must face the reality that if your subject is of interest only to a minority - a local landmark, a local personality, Book-Binding for the AmateurMarble Championships of the 20th Century, your own autobiography - then the corresponding marketing possibilities are equally small. Your book will not be a financially viable proposition for a mainstream publisher.
