How is Mayunga Books Publisher different from other publishing companies?


The benefits of publishing with Mayunga Books are: - You have editorial control of your text. You decide what goes into the book. - You have artistic control of the cover design. - You retain all the rights, including subsidiary rights, to your book. - You can get your book published much faster with Mayunga Books. - Instead of making a royalty on the wholesale distribution of your book, you will make much more money on the sale of each book you sell yourself. In addition, your sales through bookstores will net you much more than a royalty.




Will Mayunga Books register my book for me?


Yes, we will assign an ISBN number to your book and list it for you. Your book will then be in your specific category section in every library in the country, as well as on selected online and physical bookstore. You, the author, will retain the copyright to your book.




How long does it take to get my book published?


To some degree, that depends on you. As a rough estimate from the time you send the your work to us, we generally have the book published within 1 to 2 months.
