TLAC Sees Rapid Company Growth With the Rise of the Self-Publisher and Indie Author

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2015) - TLAC, an innovative publishing and printing company, is a pioneer in the independent publishing space, boasting works with thousands of authors. TLAC announces today it has doubled its business size, publishing both traditional print and e-book titles from authors in several countries. The booming growth of the self-publishing sector is bridging the gap between expert publishers and indie authors as first-time publishers often struggle to find support from top publishing companies but are looking for traditional printing standards and high-quality work.

TLAC assists authors looking to self-publish by offering a collaborative service, focusing not on sales and best sellers, but on the ultimate goal of bringing someone's powerful story to life through novels and memoirs. With a combined 15 years of experience in efficient, affordable and eco-friendly self-publishing, TLAC offers authors the following guidance to avoid the pitfalls of publishing and create hope for the indie market.

1. Apply for an ISBN - TLAC ensures every title gets an ISBN and some titles require multiple.
2. Budget time for editing, layout and graphic design - Publishers work with TLAC from the get-go to establish a budget for editing as to not cut corners in the final design.
3. Enter writing competitions - TLAC helps authors find and enter writing competitions to get valuable feedback on the work.
4. Register to showcase at events - TLAC explores less conventional and more affordable opportunities to increase author or title awareness by assisting authors with appearances at community for conventions, fairs, and trade shows.
5. Negotiate consignment - Publishers want to set authors up for success after the writing process is finished. TLAC helps authors negotiate opportunities to sell. 

"We're excited about the opportunity self-publishing has provided us to not only tell amazing untold stories, but also further develop our business," said Miraz Manji, founder of TLAC. "Self-publishers experience a change where becoming an author opens a door, yet rookie mistakes often delay the publishing process for months -- they might even miss their only chance to get their book published -- we help avoid that."

Additionally, TLAC offers self-publishers the opportunity to join its collection (fiction titles and life stories) and leverage distribution relationships with new media republishing networks through its partner company TLAC Studios.
