Adventure Books of Seattle is a small press specializing in science fiction and some non-fiction, but most of our work is in editing other authors' works. We are a US-registered wholesale trade publisher and release at the trade rate, which is 50-55% off the price printed on the cover. More than 95% of sales are wholesale via Ingram and their printer/distributor, Lightning Source. We also publish eBooks exclusively through Amazon Kindle. We can show other authors how to establish their own Kindle accounts for publishing, and how to format manuscripts properly for Kindle.
