Skin in the game

Most developers and consultants talk a good game when it is your money they are playing with. We believe so strongly in our ability to identify profitable publishing opportunities, that we have invested our own funds to bring them to market.

Seven years ago we approached a few of our clients with a new concept called The English • Spanish Foundation Series. We typically conduct research, develop the design, perform the editorial, manage the production, and then turn the project over to a publisher, but in this case no one wanted to participate. Yet we believed in our vision. We not only developed and produced the series, we also handled the marketing, sales, tradeshows, warehousing, fulfillment, and distribution. Today, the English • Spanish Foundation Series is the leader in its category.

This experience gives us a unique understanding of the publishing process from concept to delivery of the final product into the hands of end-users. Our approach assures you that we will handle your project as if it were our own. Tradebookandmedia.com can develop and manage projects of any size and scope for every conceivable kind of content and media from traditional print to interactive e-books to music and audio to video and the Internet.
