Media Distributors
Media Resources

Distribution, whether traditional or non-traditional is crucial to building a successful publishing business. There are too many people who will take your money to publish and distribute your product.

This is short list of companies who distribute media products (Books, Audio/CD, Video and film) intended for the mainstream marketplace.

This listing does not serve as a recommendation and each publisher should research and find the fit for your company.

If you come across any distributors that have exceptional work, contact me with a brief testimonial so that I may research the company and possibly add it to the site.
