Whether you've allowed us the opportunity to be part of your book's publication as your printer and/or book distributor; whether you're an established indie publisher or a new author just getting your feet wet; whether we met you at an author event this year; or whether you simply take part in our publisher education via our downloadable guides, social media, videos, or blog; you have helped us learn and grow, and for that we are always grateful.
Our goal, first and foremost, is to help you make your books available to readers around the world, whether they discover your work(s) directly from your social media, a book review, in a library, or a physical bookstore or online store. We're just as overjoyed as you are when we see your books in all of our favorite book-buying places, and know, from your feedback, that this is one of the reasons you most love publishing your books with us.
Looking ahead to 2018, we are working to streamline the royalties’ payout system by adding a PayPal feature allowing us to electronically make your statements & funds easier to get to you. We are intent to provide you with the tools you need to successfully navigate the challenging world of book publishing, so look for improved tools and resources that we intend to help you reach your author goals.
Last year we took giant step forward as Purpose Publishing celebrated a major milestone, 100 Books & 100 Authors! It's incredible how far we've come in seven short years and impossible to imagine Ingram Distribution without all of the amazing lndie authors and the fantastic books they've created and shared. We’ll still be celebrating this year by rolling out many new services that you’ve requested and showcasing more authors and what they’re doing. 2018 promises to be another fantastic year for us all.
I hope you can find the time to read and write during this first quarter. Happy New Year to everyone with a story, past, present, or future, and the courage to share it!
To Your Success,
