What is the Role of the Publisher?

The publisher is responsible for all aspects of publication. Publishers focus on authors they believe will have commercial success with writing, as publishing is a business focused on turning a profit.

Once your book is on the book production line there is a lot involved before the book is put in stores. They have to come up with a book design, then edit the book, typesetting and proofreading, cover brief and preparation of cover art, then program meetings, then a cover copy, followed by marketing and sales briefs, then a cover proof and printing, followed by text printing and binding, then the delivery to the warehouse and finally, the delivery to stores.
