Vivalogue, a specialty publisher, stepped in when a trade publisher folded. The author was able to re-publish her book with full editorial control, higher retained earnings and access to new markets.

Vivalogue gives all me the advantages of self-publishing without all the headaches

Vivalogue Publishing Canada Limited will be assisting Canadian author Gail Banning to republish her critically acclaimed young adult novel, Out on a Limb. Banning’s first novel originally published in 2008 by Key Porter. When the Toronto based book publisher went out of business in 2011 she, along with many other well-known authors, were affected. Demand from bookstores for Out on a Limb, a story about an ordinary suburban family who end up living in a treehouse, remained.

In Spring 2012, Banning succeeded in regaining copyright of the novel, which Quill & Quire magazine reviewed as “filled with whimsical possibilities” which “will intrigue readers with its unusual elements.” In 2009, Out on a Limb was nominated for a Chocolate Lily Award honouring the best in British Columbia’s children’s literature. Vivalogue will be providing editing, printing and marketing support for the novel's re-release in the summer of 2012. “I chose Vivalogue because their self-publishing package allows authors to retain all copyright and editorial control. Vivalogue gives all me the advantages of self-publishing without all the headaches,” says Banning. The company, which has a branch in the United Kingdom, also gives access to new international markets while delivering a substantial increase in retained earnings.
