Not every perennial seller is an instant hit, and not every early success leads to longevity, but having a strategy for presales is crucial to the early life of a book—and the sanity of the team working on it. Our sales and author services team has seen just about every approach to getting, shipping, and counting those sales, and our custom projects and operations teams are perfectly set up to execute them.

Tap into our decades-worth of experience and knowledge before setting a strategy, and then plug into our backend logistics and customizable service offerings to ensure it goes off without a hitch.

I can’t say enough about the great work Porchlight does for authors! Need a landing page for people to be able to sign up to get the book? And want the page live within 24 hours? Porchlight did it in less than two hours from inquiry to live. Need a place to sign books you’re sending out to purchasers? Porchlight made me right at home. Every step of the way, Porchlight has done a great job!

Every book project is only as good as the partners you bring into it. The Porchlight team make excellent partners - great communication, excellent service, deep knowledge and expertise, sincere passion, and wonderful people. Any time someone wants 10 or more copies, Porchlight is the only place we send them.

Bernadette Jiwa - Author, Hunch and Story Driven

In a world where people make a lot of promises and don’t follow through, I can always count on them to get the books where I need them, on time. Porchlight is one of the very few services that truly works.
