Our model is unique because it is based on speed. We looked at the traditional www.morganjamespublishing.com [book publishing] company models, and took advantage of the technology that is available to get books in print and to book buyers fast. There is virtually no reason authors should wait nine to twelve months to have their books available through any publisher.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 17, 2006
It is exciting enough for any book publisher to have their book reach #1.
But it is unheard of for a publisher to go from manuscript to #1 in under 45 days -- and yet that is exactly what happened to a recent book from entrepreneurial publisher Morgan James. What is more, this is exactly that kind of success that is making the book publishing world take note.
By partnering with printing powerhouse Lightning Source (who named Morgan James their first high volume publisher) and leading wholesaler Ingram Book Group, Morgan James Publishing has dramatically reduced the time it takes for a book to go from manuscript to market. In fact, the publisher’s process is so revolutionary that it netted them a nomination as one of Fast Company Magazine’s “Fast 50” Companies for 2006.
It isn’t just publishers that are taking note, though. Best-selling authors, as well as first-time authors, are beating a path to Morgan James’ door.
“The challenge with other publishers is the amount of time it takes to get your book in print, it can take up to a year from the time you are finished with the manuscript,” said author David Garfinkel. And Garfinkel is not the only author who believes in the process. Guerrilla Marketing legend Jay Conrad Levinson signed a multi-book deal for new books, including Guerrilla Marketing for the New Millennium and Guerrilla Marketing During Tough Times.
Best-selling authors Joe Vitale, Tony Alessandra, and many others have also recently signed contracts with Morgan James.
Morgan James founder David Hancock says, “Our model is unique because it is based on speed. We looked at the traditional book publishing company models, and took advantage of the technology that is available to get books in print and to book buyers fast. There is virtually no reason authors should wait nine to twelve months to have their books available through any publisher.”
Book Publishing technology has changed, book buying habits have changed and the needs of book stores have changed. In fact, the only thing that hasn’t changed is the attitude and business-as-usual approach of entrenched publishers who are still using a publishing model that is decades out of date. Morgan James is helping other publishing companies that want to accelerate their transition to a 21st century way of doing business by providing a unique imprint program that allows existing publishers, as well as entrepreneurs who want to create their own publishing companies, to leverage the Morgan James model, technology and distribution.
“Entrepreneurs are rapidly embracing their own imprint because of the flexibility and profitability partnering with a major publishing house offers,” said Hancock.
Morgan James is actively seeking authors, including first time authors, those considering self publishing and entrepreneurs who would like either to publish a book, or partner on their own Morgan James imprint. Authors are encouraged to contact Morgan James via their website, http://www.morganjamespublishing.com, to set up an initial conversation about their book. Because of their unique production methodology and speed to market, Morgan James and its allied imprints can take on multiple new authors each month in 2006.
