Xlibris Parent Company ASI Leads Global Independent Publishing

Author: Michael McCain

Author Solutions Inc. (ASI), one of the largest self-publishers in the United States, now claims its title as the world leader in the most popular segment of book publishing. According to Bowker, the world’s leading source for bibliographic information, the number of US on-demand titles that were brought to the market in 2008 has exceeded the new US traditionally published titles.

Not so long ago, the only way to get a book published was to get an agent to submit your book to the big publishing houses. Now, self-publishing has revolutionized this practice and authors can now see their books in print without all the hassle.

In 2008 alone, ASI’s family of publishers, which includes Xlibris, has published more than 23,000 new titles to the market. As a whole, ASI companies have published more than 120,000 titles to the market and have helped more than 85,000 authors achieve their goals in publishing.

Xlibris has helped more than 20,000 authors publish over 25,000 titles over the years. As one of the pioneers of the print-on-demand publishing services industry, Xlibris continues to provide authors with quality products and services that are built with years of extensive experience.
