The Wild Rose Press does not file a copyright for your book through any of our publishing programs. We want you to retain those rights, and feel it should be your decision to do so. We do, however, post a copyright notice on the publishing history page of your book and have records regarding your work from the first time you contacted us should you ever need proof that it is yours.

An ISBN (Industry Standard Book Number) is supplied by Bowker, the single supplier of ISBNs in the United States.
An ISBN is essentially a product identifier used by publishers, booksellers, libraries, internet retailers and other supply chain participants for ordering, listing, sales records and stock control purposes. The ISBN identifies the registrant as well as the specific title, edition and format.
The Wild Rose Press purchases the ISBNs for your book in digital and print versions unless you provide your own ISBN and are in our assisted publishing program.
Through our standard publishing program, once a manuscript has been contracted it enters the edit phase. You work with your editor to make it the best possible book it can be. During this time artwork is created for the cover of the book. Once the editing is complete, the book goes into galley phase and is fine-tuned and copy edited. After that, a release date is set, and subsequently the book is distributed around the world.
Our assisted publishing programs work on a case by case basis and depend on how much you want to be involved.
Although our books are available to stores for purchase through our distributors and directly through us in all of our publishing programs, they do not appear on shelves in brick and mortar stores.
In all of our publishing programs we only print books that average more than 100 pages. Our print size is 5×8, so anything shorter than 100 pages is not long enough to provide a well printed book.
We send out newsletters announcing our latest releases, as well as utilitze Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and various other social media applications. We constantly strive to find new ways to market our long list of books as well as assist the authors with their marketing efforts. We work with library suppliers to promote special lists, we run sales campaigns with the author, and we co-op ads in various flyers and online sources. However, the best marketing for any book is that done by the author. Word of mouth is still the best advertising tool, and no one knows their work better than the author.
