The publishing industry is experiencing a massive transformation right now. Traditional booksellers and publishers find themselves continually marginalized by not adapting to the digital age of “on-demand” publishing.
This disruption and tightening of the digital noose on the neck of traditional publishing houses have also caused most publishers to take fewer risks on new authors. There is so much talent out there, but traditional book deals take years to get a finished product to market because of a broken system that hasn’t adapted to the digital age. This is where SOFREP Books come in.
We believe that the future of publishing should make smart bets on authors with a digital print-on-demand model and speed to market. Through partnerships with iBooks, Amazon, and Audible, we can leverage smart sales channels and get our author’s works to market within days of receiving a completed manuscript, not years, which is the old way of doing things.
A big advantage over traditional book publishers is that our team of SOFREP authors will access a built-in marketing platform that reaches hundreds of millions annually through our digital sites, podcast network, and events.
“I’m personally looking at moving all my future books to SOFREP’s publishing because I can publish within weeks rather than years. To put that in perspective. If I sold a book to a publisher today, it would take 1-2 years for it to come out because of the current publishing cycle. This is a broken model. Modern publishing will be in the form of print on demand, eBooks, and audio.” New York Times Bestselling Author and CEO of SOFREP Media, Brandon Webb
We’ve just signed up several new authors. Among the upcoming works will be a Delta Force memoir and a story about flying missions in Vietnam.
