Strong on quality GBP has grown in recognition as an independent publisher. Notably, GBP offers writers, unparalleled in publishing circles, that: a book is for life, its life and not a print life of two or so years, in effect in perpetuity.
book trade attention has swung from self-publishing
back to recognized publishers (GBP included)
About the writing boom: The itch to write, and moreover be published, shot up as technology made that so much more attainable to everyone. Initially, self-publishing propelled some debut writers to stardom but then soon overwhelmed booksellers, press, media and even literary awards. As a consequence of the sheer volume, overtaking that of all past millennia, book trade attention has swung from self-publishing back to recognised publishers (GBP included) as well as to best-selling authors and with time to spare in their COVID isolation, which happens to have further bumped up book sales, celebrities too.
