Rebel is an eBook/Publish-On-Demand (POD) publisher.
We produce high quality, finely designed ePub and Kindle eBooks for distribution to all major online eBook retailers at a competitive price. Our titles can be found at Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony, Diesel and Waterstones, to name a few.
We also produce a high quality, finely designed trade paper edition of our books. These are Publish-On-Demand titles and can be found on most online sites offering trade paper sales.
There has been some confusion over the meaning of Publish-On-Demand. Simply put, a POD book does not exist in a physical sense until someone orders it. It is then printed and mailed to the purchaser. It is a seamless process which is both environmentally and financially friendly with little or no impact on the customer.
However, there are some aspects of POD that an author should be aware of before submitting their work to a POD publisher such as Rebel. Bookstores and Libraries, in general, will not order or stock POD titles so the likelihood of seeing your book on bookstore or library shelves is negligible. This is not due to any practice by POD publishers but rather due to the antiquated business practices on the part of the publishing industry as a whole.
Rebel fully supports Independent Bookstores and as the industry changes, perhaps these business practices will, of necessity, change over time.
It is a sad fact of todays publishing world that 90% of the marketing of a book in any format, both in terms of time and finances, has become the responsibility of the author. Websites, social media, Amazon Author pages and other forms of exposure have become a necessity rather than an option. As an author, the development of an author platform is paramount. Contacting local resources – newspapers, local radio, libraries, bookstores – has become imperative. Your book is not going to find the audience it deserves by itself. You need to be prepared for this and willing to make the effort. There are many online marketing resources to aid you in your pursuit of sales.
We publish most genres of fiction. We are looking for new talented authors who have not previously been published, as well as previously published authors looking for a new way to make their voices heard.
