Member Directory Listing - About Us:
Rootstock Publishing is an innovative, hybrid publishing company* that partners with the writer, 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. 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.
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 experience publishing program books that accompany music and film programs on compact disc and DVD.
