What is the role of the publisher?

The publisher is responsible for all aspects of publication. They want to attract good authors and publish books that will achieve commercial success, because that means that they get a profit and they didn’t just waste money on publishing a book that didn’t earn any profit.

Once your book is on the book production line, there is a lot involved before the book can be put into 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.
