Books you want? Books you get...



A copyright page like an ISBN will only be necessary if you intend to distribute or market your book. If your book is for personal use only or to give out as gifts, then you won't need to register the book with the relevant authorities or have us do it for you.

The copyright page is usually on the back of the title page, and contains the copyright statement, library cataloguing information, credits for photography, design, page layout, and printing, as well as contact information for the publisher and distributor.

The Copyright Statement
In Canada, to register a copyright you print a copyright statement inside the book. This copyright will be recognized in many countries. The copyright statement includes the copyright symbol (©) followed by the year and the name of the holder of the copyright (usually the author). For more information go to the Canadian Copyright Act.

In the United States you can register a copyright by going to the U.S. Copyright Office.

The copyright statement usually goes on the reverse side of the title page.

BabalonBOOKS was created to assist publishers and authors reach their publishing goals. We provide editing, design, printing, distribution and fulfillment services like publishers do; but our authors or publishing customers maintain all rights to their titles and keep the profits from the sale (not just a royalty). 

BabalonBOOKS specializes not only in on-demand printing, but in all the author/publisher support roles. This means that we do alot more than just "manufacture" the book. We can help with design, editing, marketing, distribution, promotion and fulfillment services. See our brochure for more information.

On demand printing means that you are able to order / print titles as often as you like and for any quantity you deem fit (e.g. one copy). This means that you don't have to print copies unless you absolutely need to, and you can do it, sale by sale. Titles can be printed one book at a time to meet the exact demands of the market or in bulk quantities to take advantage of volume of sale discounts. We also provide short-run and galley printing. We can also fulfill (i.e. ship) directly to your customers. 

The advantages BabalonBOOKS brings to publishers are many. We can provide editing, design, sales fulfillment, marketing and distribution support services. Through print-on-demand and ebook services we can fulfill and deliver on customer sales. Publishers that avail themselves of our print on demand services, sells more books through our wide distribution channels, reduce their investment in printing, eliminate (or reduce) warehousing inventory, and don't need to handle customer ordering and returns. In the beginning, publishers were using us more for their books' end of life cycle--after the initial on-rush of sales have stabilized and the book has been on the market for some time. Today, we find publishers are launching titles with our inventory and so mitigating risk. BabalonBOOKS's e-book and print on demand fulfillment services gives publishers a quick and effective means to market.
