Services for Publicists & Agents
As publicists and agents know well, publishing a book is just one step of a book’s lifecycle, and it involves a community of people working on different aspects of it. With over 35 years in the industry, we know that different books have different needs and act to bridge the gap between publisher, author, and outside agent to meet those needs. We put our extensive experience and network of relationships within the industry to work to build the connective tissue and set a strategy to make each step of a book’s lifecycle a success.
Can't wait to start calling our retailer friend 800ceoread by their new name Porchlight. They've always left the porchlight on to make us and our author clients feel welcome.
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.
We not only move books, we immerse ourselves in them, attempting to understand the ideas and intent of the authors, and help spread those we believe in.
