Publishers and Author(s), Why You Should Choose Us!
Publishing your first or several titles can be a difficult process and choosing the wrong publication and distribution firm can be an expensive mistake. Therefore, we want to make your decision as painless and profitable as possible. This is why you should choose us:
  • Securely stored eBook: Besides reducing the cost of printing and distribution, eBook publishing minimizes the threat of piracy (which takes over 30 per cent off the publishers/ authors income). The Bookway Builder management system minimizes piracy by using tight security features such as secure download links (that is, expiring time limit and maximum number of download attempts), IP tracking (to get a handle on whether the download link is shared), unique watermark and ebook stamping  (to strictly limit sharing).
  • Higher eBook royalties: Due to minimal (or no) marginal cost of paper and shipping you keep 85 per cent of the sale for qualified titles. Payment methods include Paypal, M-Pesa and Airtel Money.
