Member Directory Listing - About Us:
Rootstock Publishing is an innovative, hybrid publishing company that partners with the author, whom we think of as the rootstock, the primary source. We are not unique, modeling ourselves on other relatively new, non-traditional publishing partnership houses that have met with successes for many new writers. First, we seek writers with high quality, competent, and compelling manuscripts. In this respect, we are a curated press. And, we seek writers who want more control over their work, who seek higher earnings per book sold, and who are willing to invest toward that end.
Rootstock's publishing model is designed to maximize the profits of the author, preserve the author's copyright, and provide the author with editing, proofing, design, online distribution of the print book, eBook distribution, and to support the author's promotional efforts, among other things. We also provide support for distribution to bookstores, and schools and libraries through our relationship with Ingram and Baker & Taylor.
Rootstock Publishing is an imprint of Multicultural Media Inc., home of Lyrichord World Music, Lyrichord Classical and Early Music, Multicultural Media's Music of the Earth recordings, Rootstock Recordings, MCM Films, and the acclaimed JVC Smithsonian Folkways DVD collections of world music and dance, featuring 41 volumes and 20 books. We have many years experience publishing program books that accompany music and film programs on compact disc and DVD, and selling music, DVDs and books through bookstores and online.
Through our Promotion and Publicity Services we provide authors support who wish to self-publish or publish with another publishing company. From editing and proofreading to email and snail-mail campaigns to bookstores and libraries, from website design to book trade shows and advertising, from press releases to sell-sheet/press kit development, we can support an author in all the ways she wishes to promote herself and her book.
