New Bern, NC (PRWEB) May 6, 2004
Over 5 million Americans have a book manuscript sitting on a shelf. It is nearly impossible to get published through traditional routes, especially for childrenÂs book.
So, unless you were a celebrity like Madonna or the Duchess of York, chances were highly remote you could ever see YOUR childrenÂs book in print. Now the odds have changed. Instead of relying on major publishing houses, which reportedly reject over 99 percent of
submissions, authors of childrenÂs picture books can easily and cheaply self-publish their book with a groundbreaking new print-on-demand color publishing service from Trafford Publishing (http://www.trafford.com/colorbooks).
With TraffordÂs new service, what used to cost up to $40,000 or more can now be done for as little as $999. What used to take a year to complete can now be accomplished in as little as six weeks.
ÂClearly weÂve broken all of the barriers for countless writers and illustrators who aspire to publish full-color picture books,Â says Bruce Batchelor, CEO of Trafford Publishing, ÂSince the launch of our new service, the number of new kidsÂ book titles being published
in the United States has increased dramatically.Â
Back in 1995, Trafford Publishing was the first company in the world to offer Âon-demand publishing servicesÂ for novels, memoirs and other black-and-white books. This year, they will sell over 500,000 books on behalf of self-publishing authors and organizations, as
well as recruit another 3,000 individual authors to use their one-of-a-kind, on-demand publishing service.
From authors who have written stories for the general childrenÂs market, to grandparents or parents who simply want to preserve special family stories in print, Trafford Publishing makes publishing dreams come true for people from all walks of life. Already one of the first authors to self-publish through this innovative service has been scooped up by a marketing firm developing a product line related to his book.
