Your book has probably already received much interest and enthusiasm among family and friends - the next step is to sell it to the rest of the world.

Promoting your book will require hard work and inspiration which will hopefully result in orders. Once people have heard about your book, they need to be able to purchase it quickly and easily.

YPS have handled the lists of many mainstream publishers.

Commission free and Stress free Distribution

With our extensive contacts and accounts in the book trade, we are able to offer independent publishers and small press publishing houses the same book distribution benefits as the larger organisations.
These include:

YPS is that vital link in the chain from your book to the market

Many bookshops, particularly major bookshop chains, are reluctant to deal with small publishers. They place orders with wholesalers rather than ordering direct.

YPS have accounts with book wholesalers and bookshops. Every day we process and supply orders to UK bookshops (including Waterstone’s), wholesalers, libraries and library suppliers.
Although bookstores are essential, we recommend direct selling whenever possible.

Why sell direct?

The most successful independent publishers have managed to find the right balance between trade sales, which will give them volume at a lower return and direct sales - sales to individuals where their financial return is highest.
Contact YPS for more information on how we can help you distribute to the UK book trade and beyond and also sell direct.

Selling on Amazon

As your distributor YPS will navigate the various options across Amazon on your behalf.
YPS have various accounts with Amazon around the world, including Amazon KDP for
eBook releases, FBA UK, US and CA, Advantage UK and US, also we have merchant
accounts too. Lots to consider and lots of different costs too. Based on your release and the
audience base YPS will position your title on Amazon to your best advantage.

And Finally....

YPS- Publishing will make every effort to generate sales for your book. It must, however, be recognised that the book trade is flooded with new titles, and it is especially difficult for new authors to break into the market. That said, it has been done before! Whilst luck and a good, well produced book certainly play a part, promotion and marketing is also essential. We can, however, make no claims about the number of copies you will sell.
