Jacana Media Launches Staging Post, a Division to Assist Writers with Self-Publishing

Jacana Media is delighted to announce the launch of Staging Post – The Stories We Tell. It is a publishing division devoted to assisting writers to self-publish their books. The growth of self-published books is not news. Self-publishing has existed for many years, but has been more on the margins of the publishing and bookselling world. Established publishing houses’ catalogues reflect their particular interests and concerns, and these limitations frequently close the door on some books.

Self-publishing has resolutely moved from the margins and is certainly a major contributor to overall sales. Staging Post – The Stories We Tell exists for authors to publish their own work. Authors can make use of our skills and resources to edit, typeset and design their book and thereafter to convert it to the various electronic platforms and print. At Jacana Media we have a particular interest in making beautiful books, ones to which we can bring as much craft as possible, and we hope to be able to spread this design element to those who choose to go it alone.

Staging Post has been conceived with simplicity in mind. To get started, simply contact our Custom Publishing manager, Leigh-Ann Harris.
