A brief history of publishing…

In the beginning of book publication history, many famous books got their start when they were published by their authors.  Self-publishing is an early American industry as the person who had the printing press was usually the author, publisher, printer and book shop owner.

From the very beginning of the printing process (the year 1455), book publication was set up to  benefit the publishers pocketbook first and foremost.  Publishing with a larger publisher remains that way today and publishers get paid, and from writers, whether the writer gets paid or not.  Large publishers have enjoyed a long reign where they called the shots and what publishers chiefly did for writers was put their books out into books stores.  One glance around and you will see that the only large book store standing today is Barnes and Noble.  There are also only 6 major publishing houses remaining.  Times, they are a changing.  Writers are getting wise and exercising more control over their work and keeping more of the profits.  No more selling out to a large publisher with their lengthy delays and epic expenses.

That is where Alpha Sutra Press comes onto the scene.  Alpha Sutra Press does “self-publishing” for writers who haven’t a clue how-to and frankly are more interested in getting their work published than learning the process.  Alpha Sutra Press, a small, independent publisher, and can get your finished ebook to Barnes and Noble book sellers just like a large publisher does and in less time.  We can also put your ebook on Amazon and Kindle devices as well as other large book markets.  We literally do the “self-publishing” for you.  We do it without high-jacking your copyright exclusivity,  we assign you an ISBN number, and we even participate in the marketing your book, along side of you, and creatively throughout the internet, on social media, and blogs written around the globe.  Yes, we can also put your work in paper back.
