Traditional Publishing

What is traditional publishing?

Traditional book publishing offers the author freedom of doing any legwork for their book. If your book is accepted for traditional publishing, RIA JAY will draw up a formal contract with the author. From there, our team will handle all of the ins and outs that come along with publishing. This includes, but is not limited to, editing, publishing, marketing, and selling. Your book would also be set up through national and global book retailers. With traditional publishing, there are no out-of-pocket costs for the author and the publisher pays all upfront fees for services and production. The author is paid in royalties for their work.

When published through RIA JAY, your book will appear for purchase through the following major book outlets:
