Going International with Print on Demand Publishing
Recently, we arranged with IngramSpark to provide a print-on-demand and epublication version of Lars Doucet's Land is a Big Deal and an epublication version of Olympia Sibley's Zoom and the Neanderthal Girl. These books are now available to wholesalers and bookstores worldwide, and can be ordered through any bookseller, whether online or bricks-and-mortar store worldwide. The books and epublications have already been sold in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, and India.
Why do we tell you this? Well, for one thing, this means that you can obtain the book locally and avoid excessive mail costs if you live in Europe, Australia, Canady, and perhaps even South America and Asia. While the print copy of the books is not quite as nice as that of those we printed here in the USA, they are still very well printed, and the print copy and illustrations are sharp, crisp, and meet our own exacting standards. So, while we continue to think that the best deal for our American buyers is to purchase the book from us through our Wix store here, or through our store on Amazon, we do think that ordering the book from local or online bookstores elsewhere, or purchasing them from independent bookseller on Amazon internationally, might be a better option for our customers, fiscally speaking. IngramSpark distributes through the following wholesalers and booksellers internationally - one should be able to order the book through any of th
