Amazon Distribution

Once you publish with us, your book will be available through  retailers such as Amazon and Google Books.

Why Distribution Matters

Channel distribution enables your book to be ordered by and distributed to online booksellers and retailers around the world. This allows you to reach a wide audience and compete in the book marketplace.

If your publishing goals include more than giving away copies of your book to friends and family, book distribution is essential. Although it may sometimes be possible to sell directly to bookstores, booksellers prefer dealing with wholesalers and distributors rather than entering into transactions with individual authors.

Google-Search Optimized Website

If you happened to have purchased a Deluxe Website from Authorhouse or Hapercollins,

what you get is only one year of domain and website hosting.

What happens after the first year of hosting has passed? You will be responsible for paying a yearly site hosting and domain name renewal fee for as long as you want your website to be available on the Internet.

At Alpha Book Publisher, we service our clients much differently.

First, we will never charge you an initial setup fee.

Second, you will never have to pay for annual hosting and domain name fees.

And third, your website is optimized to rank for Google a lot quicker because it is hosted by Google.

Keyword here? Hosted by Google - meaning your potential readers will find you rather easily.

Plus, the site is forever yours!

U.S Library of Congress Control Number

The Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN) is a serially-based system of numbering and cataloging records in the United States Library of Congress.​

  • Important for an author planning on selling their book(s) to private and public libraries in the United States.

  • Librarians all over the world use this unique identifier in the process of cataloging most books which have been published in the United States. It helps them access the correct cataloging data (known as a cataloging record), which the Library of Congress and third parties make available on the Web and through other media.

ISBN Assignment

If you're looking to establish and identify your title for acceptance by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors - an International Standard Book Number is a must!

What DNA is to your body, an ISBN is to your book. 

Social Media Setup Guide

When it comes to building an online presence as an author, one of the easiest and more effective ways to establish yourself is to join free social networking sites that will allow you to interact directly with other online users.

To help you jump-start your activity on popular social platforms, we’ve created a comprehensive PDF guide that will walk you through the basics of how to set up and manage profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. This step-by-step guide will take you through the technical aspects of signing up with each platform and show you how to use these online tools to share content and engage with readers and professionals.

Your Social Media Setup Guide will introduce you to the basics of the following platforms:

  • Instagram — a social networking service where you can share enhanced photos and videos with your followers not only on Instagram, but also on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media services

  • Facebook — a social networking service where you can upload photos, create events, and keep in touch with friends, family, followers, and fans

  • Twitter — a micro-blogging social media site that allows you to engage with other users in short status updates of 280 characters or fewer

  • LinkedIn — an online network for professionals looking to exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with others in their field

6-Month Booksellers Return Program

  • The ability to return unsold print books is a standard publishing business practice that has remained since the Great Depression. Since that time, brick-and-mortar booksellers have been able to mitigate their own financial risk by relying on publishers to credit returned books.

  • Often, booksellers will hesitate to order and stock books when they aren’t “Returnable.” This means if getting your title stocked on bookstore shelves is part of your marketing plan, Booksellers Return Program is an essential element to earning shelf space and/or in-store book signings.

  • One major benefit of this service is you will not be charged back for royalties earned on the sales to the store if your books are returned. Losses are on us!
