Worldwide Book Distribution

Publishing with iUniverse ensures that your title is accessible to thousands of retailers around the globe, which is critical if you are serious about selling copies of your book.

Why Distribution Matters

Channel distribution enables your book to be ordered by and distributed to online booksellers and retailers around the world. Plus, all books published with iUniverse are listed in Bowker’s Books in Print® database and are available for sale worldwide through the iUniverse online bookstore. Our international print network also speeds delivery of your book for orders outside the United States. This allows you to reach a wide audience and compete in the book marketplace.

If your publishing goals include more than giving away copies of your book to friends and family, book distribution is essential. Although it may sometimes be possible to sell directly to bookstores, booksellers prefer dealing with a few wholesalers and distributors rather than entering into transactions with individual authors.

Help Readers Discover Your Book

While some retailers, such as the iBooks Store, are strictly for e-books, many stores offer both the print and e-book versions on their websites. Learn more about some of distributors and retailers iUniverse works with to make your book available for purchase around the globe.
