Tryptic Hybrid Publishing service gives authors that qualify access to our range of publishing imprints. If your book is selected for inclusion, Tryptic will provide the marketing and sales support that will make your book available to all avenues of commercial sales outlets. These include on-line services, such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as the full range of brick and mortar booksellers, including the large chain stores and independents.


Tryptic will also store the books in our warehouse and handle all aspects of sales, distribution and invoicing.


Hybrid Publishing is best suited to books that have the potential to appeal to a wide audience. Our selection committee will evaluate your book to see if it meets this criterion. On average, we select approximately 20% of the books that are submitted for inclusion. Of course, books that are not selected still have the potential to reach an appropriate audience, and we will offer advice to the authors of those books as to how to maximize this potential.


An imprint of a publisher is a name under which it publishes a book. A publishing company often has several imprints, each having a different name that serves as a brand to market books to specific groups of readers. These imprints can be found on the spine and title page of the book.


It is easy for a single title to get lost in the multitude of books that are published each year. Traditional publishers overcome this problem by grouping books within imprints. Each imprint contains titles from the same genre and with similar appeal. This allows each book to attract readers and then to direct them to other titles they might like. Every author benefits from the attention that is drawn to each book within the group, greatly increasing the potential audience.


At Tryptic, we offer this very successful technique from traditional publishing to the self-published author.

You have probably noticed that publishers often include a list at the back of books - most often on paperbacks - of other books you might like. This cross promotion is very effective, since it guides readers to similar titles to the one they just enjoyed. This is an example of the advantages that come from grouping books within an imprint.


We won't list other books at the back of yours, but you will benefit from readers of other books on your imprint becoming aware of your title. Readers tend to prefer books from a single genre. People that enjoy mystery novels, for example, are always keen to discover new writers of the genre. Carlton Jones Lake provides them with this opportunity and provides you with a way of selling more books.
