At Burnet Media, our emphasis is on providing authors and clients the knowledge and support they need to understand the publishing trade and the full potential of their books. This is our starting point for anyone considering a book, from which we can understand the best way for them to publish, whether it’s on their own, through us, or through another publisher.
Our preferred publishing model is then Platform Publishing, a niche that is ideal for authors with their own following or audience (their own “platform”), and thus access to a direct market. We work closely with our platform authors to produce books that are tailor-made to their needs and positioned perfectly for their audiences. The finished product is given the credibility it deserves by being made widely available in the trade (bookstores and online sales platforms).
This approach offers authors a high level of control over the creative process, and is an ideal model for authors in a position to move large quantities of books themselves, either in direct sales or as currency.
