About our Publishing Arm
Although we do not only sell books, or indeed our own books, as a core part of this site, Silk Route Press is a boutique publisher located in Johannesburg, South Africa. We produce textbooks, fiction, non-fiction, and other types of books. Our founding principle remains “more for the authors, more for the readers”.
How to Publish with Us
If you wish to publish under the banner of Silk Route Press, please send a 2-3 page initial proposal to us at email@example.com detailing:
- The book’s title
- The genre and sub-genre (essentially, type of book)
- A synopsis of the book
- Especially if non-fiction, a Table of Contents (this can be skipped for fiction)
- The intended audience (if possible, projections of sales, e.g. guaranteed prescribed status for courses)
- Proposed formats (printed, ebook, etc)
- Any other relevant information
How do we Deal with Ebooks?
When you place your ebooks on our store, we are passionately dedicated to protecting your precious intellectual property from any type of piracy. We currently have two strategies for dealing with ebooks:
- We render your text into a saleable, Windows-based ebook that is a downloadable application (.exe file) which requires a registration key to unlock. This file renders it impossible for readers to copy text, screenshot, share the file, or in any other way pirate the material.
- For Apple users we will set your book up in Amazon Kindle, or you can do the same. In our store, we will redirect Apple users to your Kindle option.
"We're seeing a once-in-a-millennium generational shift in the way people access the books that they are reading,
the way in which they are learning and their paths to enjoyment."
