WHERE IS PUBLISHING GOING?

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, October 29, 2016, In : Publishing 

As the owner of a small but well-established publishing house producing enduring literary works, I'm often asked where I think the publishing industry is ultimately headed. Twenty years ago that question would have been greeted with a quixotic lilt of the head. Today it elicits mainly a puzzled half-frown. 


For the past ten or more years, publishing has experienced one major upheaval after another. In the USA, first came the demise of several major bookseller chains, and the gradual repurpos...

RISING TO THE OCCASION

Posted by Daniel S. Janik on Monday, February 17, 2014, In : Publishing 
Finding a safe place on today's book publishing battlefield is no easy task; more so, charting a growth position for an uncertain future. For example, bookstores, mainly the large and regional chain stores, which have long been the mainstays of retail book sales, are disappearing at an alarming rate (a la Borders and now Barnes and Noble). The dwindling 3,000 small, independent bookstores are being heavily stressed to stay open as well. But that's nothing new -- it's been coming for a long t...

David Shinsato Joins Savant Editor Staff

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, January 12, 2014, In : New Editor 
David Shinsato is glad to be continuing with Savant, this time as an Editor (in addition to proofreader). He's a still the laid back guy who likes to read, serve at church, and hang out with his friends. He's recently engaged, and he and partner are planning to marry in December of this year. He's also taking the necessary steps to becoming a freelance direct response copywriter. Until then, he'll also be working as a busser, then hopefully a waiter, at Gyotaku Japanese restaurant in Pear...

Four New Savant Editors and One New Proofreader

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, In : Publishing 
2013's been a busy year for Savant Books and Publications (SBAP), Savant Bookstore Honolulu (SBH) and Savant Distribution (SD). The year saw SBAP and it's subsidiaries once again well in the black despite the bleak economic environment. For example, while Barnes and Noble closed it's Kahala Mall bookstore, SBH at Hawaii Kai and SBH at Kokua Market (University District) this year effectively doubled our online sales income, as well as 2013 author royalties. We fully expect to fill a good porti...

BOOK PROMOTION FOR AND WITH AUTHORS

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, April 8, 2013, In : Publishing 
Whenever a prospective author asks me, ''What would your publishing house do to promote my book?'' I have to take a minute, breathe deep, and remember that to many, it really means, ''How would you make people buy my book so I can retire a millionaire and never have to write another?''

AUTHORS AND OTHERS

That isn't to say that all potential or seasoned authors think this way, but a growing number of new; young writers seem to. In the world of publishing, there are many writers, and likewise wh...

PUTTING ON THE SPELL

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, September 5, 2012, In : major events 
These days, in today's world of publishing, "getting published" and having one's book appear on a wide variety of established sales channels has gotten much easier, while garnering author name and book title recognition so interested readers can locate an author's work has gotten much harder. While publishers struggle with the vastly increased approaches to publication including self-, vanity, POD (print on demand), electronic and traditional publishing models, distributors for ways to identi...

Aloha from sunny Honolulu, the heart of the literary explosion called "Savant Books and Publications."  During 2010, Savant released 18 books, and we have 12 more in various stages of pre-release for early 2011.

Savant is now partnered with GoogleBooks and Google eBooks.  What does this mean? Well, first off, they contacted us, and I believe that's due...
