The Cine Lens Manual

"Bookshop not only gave us a built-in e-commerce solution, but it also gave us a chance to maximize royalties. After a great deal of research, we elected to distribute our book exclusively through Bookshop for the first six months before expanding to other distribution outlets where our royalty share would be substantially less. This allowed us to maximize profits. Initially Bookshop was our only revenue source, and the results have been extraordinary."

If You Touch, I'll Tell

"With Bookshop, you set your book's price and manage how your book is sold. When I wanted to offer a promotional discount, I was able to quickly create a coupon right from my Bookshop account. With Print On Demand, your book can be available to any bookstore across the globe — a service that will forever revolutionize and innovate the way self-published authors make their titles accessible to everyone, anywhere in the world."

"Having my book on Bookshop gave me the opportunity for immediate exposure. The ability to copy the Bookshop link to various social media platforms helped provide much-needed awareness and convenient access for readers to purchase. Easy to navigate and search with one click of a button, Bookshop's site offers an enjoyable experience. Once on the book's landing page, the overview, description, and author biography are well laid out. My experience from start to finish with BookBaby was very positive, especially being a first-time author."

Served From My Family Table to Yours

"I couldn't be happier that I chose BookBaby to publish my first cookbook. With Bookshop, they print and ship to order! They totally handle the customer interface and send me a nice royalty check each month. They ship the copy to the customers quickly — often within a week! For me, that means no hassling with storing inventory or putting out thousands of dollars before recouping expenses."
