Let's make a book together

Uitgeverij Komma is always looking for new authors and artists. Have an idea for a special book? Let us know!

Making a book involves a lot of work. You need text, photography and a design. Then the book has to be edited, printed, bound and distributed. PR and marketing have to be arranged. Quite a challenge if you don't have the experience.

We can help you publish your book. Whether it is a simple version with a powerful content or an extravagant limited edition, at Uitgeverij Komma you have come to the right place.

With 30 years of experience, we posses all the necessary knowledge. In addition, we have a large and interesting network of copywriters, editors, photographers, designers, printers, etc. at our disposal and we know how to connect you to the right people.

No Ordinary Publisher

It is not for nothing that Uitgeverij Komma has the qualification 'No ordinary publisher'. We like to think outside the box and the words 'that's impossible' don’t enter his vocabulary. As a result, his special editions are regularly awarded prizes.

You share your idea with publisher comma and then...?

Over the years, we have specialised ourselves mainly in cookery, photography and art books. But Uitgeverij Komma also publishes other kinds of books. In our choices, we are guided by personal passion. Together we will investigate whether there is a fit and if there is a possibility for collaboration.

There is a match

After we have discussed the first ideas for the book, a follow-up interview will take place so we can make a step-by-step plan and discuss the follow-up. After the meeting, you will receive an information package with various documents that will help you publish your book.

Costs

Publishing a book costs money, so an important part of publishing is coming up with a smart earnings model.

We increasingly use crowdfunding (e.g. via voordekunst.nl) to cover the costs of publishing the book. Not only is this a great way to collect money, it also creates an immediate support base for your book. You can start up the campaign yourself with the help of Uitgeverij Komma.

Some editions are also eligible for a fund or subsidy. In consultation with Steven, you determine which funds and/or subsidies may be of interest. You will submit the application together.

Communication

The more attention is drawn to the book, the greater its reach. Sounds logical, doesn't it? Bookshops used to play the biggest part in communication when a new book was published, but with the advent of social media - among other things - a major shift has taken place.

Uitgeverij Komma is making grateful use of this visibility. The publisher regularly posts messages on Instagram, Facebook and Linkedin. In addition, we use newsletters and press releases to draw attention to your book.

You too will play an important role in the communication regarding your book. We will tell you all about the optimal use of the various channels and how you and Uitgeverij Komma can reinforce one other in this area.

Publishing under your own management

Would you rather keep production in-house? That is possible too. Steven can advise and guide you in the process based on your wishes. Curious how that works? Please feel free to contact us: stevenhond@uitgeverijkomma.nl or +31(0)6 462 665 18.
