Services for Authors
Writing and publishing a book is just the first step for an author. Our extensive knowledge of bookselling will help you set a strategy for getting your book—and its message—out into the world. We have worked with all types of authors for literally decades. We often say we’ve seen it all, but we still encounter new ideas and new sales challenges every week, and we love to meet both. If you have one of either, we’d love to hear from you.
I've worked with these folks for years. They are great with all orders, especially over 25. And you get humans, not just algorithms.
Your organization, professionalism and customer service/experience has been unparalleled since Day 1. You are a rock star!
The Porchlight team don't just believe in books—they are passionate about bringing the ideas in them to the readers that authors want to impact. Their dedication and years of experience supporting authors to spread their ideas manifest in the form of stellar editorials, targeted promotion and sales logistics. If you're looking for support to launch or share your book with the world, Porchlight will help you navigate that journey.
Thank you [Porchlight] for being such a great partner for a first-time author. I appreciate all you have done for me and #GrowthIQ.
Personalized Customer Service
We understand that every order is unique, and often needs the flexibility that only a dedicated personal representative can provide.
We report all book sales run through Porchlight Book Company to The New York Times and NPD BookScan.
Whether it’s part of training someone for a job, an add-on at a conference, or a holiday gift, we can customize books to make a lasting impression.
Bulk Book Pricing
We offer competitive discounts on bulk book orders, and an array of options for how to process them.
Our one-page order platform provides a quick and easy way to execute your pre-order campaign, book promotion, book club, or corporate gifting program.
We excel at managing high-touch, large quantity orders on tight, specific timelines—including international shipments.
Mass Book Mailing
We excel at moving a lot of books at once, even if that means sending them individually to many hundreds or even thousands of different addresses.
We offer a wide variety of services to help authors and publishers capture preorders, and accurately report the sales when they ship.
Warehousing & Consignment
We have a robust retail platform, customer service team, and warehouse operation ready to be leveraged by those on less traditional publishing platforms.
