As an alternative to publishing on your own, you might
like your book to be considered for publication through
Thankful Books into the Christian
booktrade. This is a growing co-operative Christian
publishing service working with Bookprint and therefore
offering the identical services and benefits of Bookprint
and also of Thankful
Distribution, but with the following important advantage:
Your book would
carry the Thankful Books imprint and ISBN, and as part
of that imprint would have greater prominence and recognition
within the Christian retail trade.
As with the other options, you would need to finance
the design and production of the finished books (and
therefore you would still own the whole stock), and
you would receive the same benefits of Bookprint and
Thankful Distribution, but with the additional advantage
of your book carrying a recognised publishing imprint.
This could be in addition to your own imprint if you
wished. At the same time you would of course be able
to ‘self-market’ – sell, market and
distribute copies to your own customers as you wish.
Additional charges apply to this service and not all
books may be accepted, but if you would like your book
to be considered for publication through Thankful Books
please select 'Yes' in the relevant box on the cost
estimate request form. Thankful Books operates as an
upgrade from Thankful Distribution, so once we have
received your 'go-ahead order' for Bookprint and Thankful
Distribution, we will pass your text to Thankful Books
for consideration. If it is accepted, you will be advised
of the additional charges that would apply.
