Denali Sunrise Publications is both a publisher and a publishing services company. Our goal is to promote quality publication of rural Alaskan writers, whether we act as the publisher or not. We can help with editing, designing, laying out your book, or consulting about various aspects of the publishing process.
If you are considering self-publishing and you want your book to be distributed widely in bookstores and libraries beyond Alaska, the Independent Book Publishers Association is a great resource. Use the IBPA checklist as a guide to ensure that you produce a professional quality book. If you are considering getting assistance with your publication, understand the difference between vanity publishing, self-publishing, hybrid publishing, and traditional publishing. The IBPA also recently put out a checklist of standards for hybrid publishers to protect authors and guide them in researching publication options.
If you are from rural Alaska and have a book that pertains to rural Alaska that you believe is ready to publish, or have an article you would like to post as a guest blog, please contact us to discuss options. When you contact us, please provide a very brief summary of what the material is and your own background in Alaska.
