Franklin Green Publishing has a better way
Book Publishing has changed

Traditional book publishing and marketing no longer works well. Bookstore traffic is down, returns are up, the entire system is inefficient. What’s an author to do? Franklin Green Publishing is partnering with authors to create, manufacture, promote, and distribute market-specific books. We are a full-service publisher where the author’s team is more involved in the publishing process ... and the author gets more of the reward!

  • Give more input
