Why do thousands of British authors trust BookBaby to get their books in the US?

Sell your book in the Amazon US marketplace—and beyond

BookBaby offers book distribution to the most stores worldwide. Sell children's books on Amazon US, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s Books, and many more brick and mortar shops and online retailers.

You can also take advantage of Amazon’s best book promotional tools—like Amazon KDP Select—and combine that with self-publishing’s largest distribution network. All from one, single account. Learn more

Avoid US tax hassles

Avoid US tax hassles

Independent authors from the United Kingdom that sell their print books directly to the US market can get taxed up to 30% of their retail sales. But you don’t have to worry about that with BookBaby as your book distributor. We’ll be your US agent and collect book sales on your behalf so you can avoid losing time dealing with the IRS and losing money from wrongly taxed royalties.
