Publishing

The world of publishing is changing rapidly. As the retail environment changes, independent bookstores and bookstore chains are closing at an alarming rate. A “traditional” publishing deal is not easy and is anything but traditional. Meanwhile, self-publishing has never been easier. For authors and content providers, the question is, “What approach do I take? The traditional route? Self-publishing? Or, is there a better way?”

Forefront Books is a full service, concierge publishing company that majors in solutions. As a hybrid between traditional/legacy and independent publishing, we provide our clients the freedom and control of independent publishing with the top-quality editing, production, distribution and access to professionals who deliver the same, or in many cases better, PR and marketing results as the large legacy-publishing houses. Traditional publishing deals are increasingly difficult, but it’s also less necessary to go that route in the first place.

The phrase “control of self-publishing” does not mean that we are self-publishers. We are not. The Forefront model allows the authors/organizations to keep the rights to their Intellectual Property (IP) and speak into the timing of releases, the marketing and publicity campaigns once their books are edited and have passed our editorial team’s review. Forefront does not publish whatever is sent to us but instead carefully curates those authors with whom we work.

We have the solutions.

Ghostwriting Services

We have an experienced team of ghostwriters who can help you tell your story. Once the book is mapped out, our ghostwriter conducts necessary interviews and turns the story into a publishable manuscript.

Manuscript Assistance

Our team of veteran editors and ghostwriters can assist at any step in the manuscript process, including helping you get unstuck.

Editorial Assistance

Until it’s properly edited, no manuscript is complete. Beyond spelling and punctuation, the writing must flow. A book must read like a book. Is your manuscript repetitive in places? Does it lack something you can’t put your finger on? We help you find the right path to completion.

Sales & Distribution

We’ve created New York Times bestsellers through our distribution process with wide placement at every type of retailer there is—from mass market to airports and everything in between. This is one of the key advantages of working with Forefront Books.

While Forefront accepts no unsolicited manuscripts, for our authors and clients we provide a plethora of publishing services. If you have a platform, if the traditional approach doesn’t fit and the self-publishing route falls short, you still have options.
