Distribution - Step 7 - MH Publishing


Once your book is complete, it’s time to get it out into the world. We offer bookshop distribution via Australia’s leading independent book distributor, which makes your book available for order by bookstores throughout Australia. And you can also make your book available using our ebook, print on demand and audiobook options.

If you have taken up bookshop distribution with us, the agreed quantity of books (usually 200) will be sent from the printer direct to our distributor. (Please note that we have no control over which stores might stock your book; we make the book available, but the choice to stock your book is up to the individual stores.) If you are using our ebook distribution service, your ebook will usually start to appear on outlets a week or so after your book is printed. This is because after the book is sent to the printer, it needs to be reformatted into an ebook and then uploaded to stores. Your ebook will appear on iBooks, Amazon and other major ebook outlets. A print-on-demand version of your book will make it available on sites such as Amazon and Book Depository. As with the ebook, some reformatting is required, so it will usually start to appear on sites after your book is printed. And the audiobook is also usually completed after books are printed.

We can also offer advice on any distribution options you may be managing yourself, such as selling your book on your own website, promoting it at a conference or giving a special offer to your clients.


Post-publication support

Many MHP packages also come with 12 months of post-publication support. So, for 12 months after your book is published, we’re here to answer all of your questions about your book. Does somebody want to order a large quantity of books and you’re not sure what to do? Give us a call. Running low on books and you’re not sure how many to reprint? We can help. Need some fresh ideas for using your book in your business? We know what to do.

(Please note that it is the self-publisher’s responsibility to generate publicity, and therefore sales, for their book. Our distribution options make your book available, but this does not guarantee sales. We do not market, publicise or promote your book in any way.)
