The zebra is the only wild animal that has eluded man’s attempts to domesticate. Its stripes allow it to hide in wooded areas and to stand out when in the open.
In the highly codified world of publishing, CanamBooks seeks to embrace accepted conventions while also affirming its originality and opening new paths forward.
What is assisted self-publishing?
With the concomitant advent of digital printing and the internet, the conditions for a major reordering of the publishing world have been met. This reordering must first and foremost benefit the author, who in traditional publishing circuits has been all too often alienated from her or his creative work and royalties. As an alternative to this frustrating situation, CanamBooks has put forward the concept of assisted self-publishing, the winning solution for the author. Assisted self-publishing answers all of the author’s needs: whether it’s strictly printing, or professional layout and design, or an all-inclusive solution for authors seeking a complete service. Not to mention our four commercial channels.
Our philosophy can be stated in a single sentence: to combine the know-how of serious publishing professionals with the most up-to- date technical solutions, in order to help authors obtain the satisfaction they expect from their publication, as well as fair remuneration.
