A book’s initial commercial success is often determined by preorders. We offer a wide variety of services to help authors and publishers capture those orders, and we accurately report the sales when they ship.
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.
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.
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.
