Handel’s African Books Network has been, as the punch line goes, Publishing and Connecting Africa for several decades past.
Discover the Handelbook quality
Striding three cities from the South East region yet, for an online network, such locations seem just a trifle. As media chief Udemezue says, ‘the mission is to bring writers to the world wide web; it doesn’t matter from which part of the African region they come.’ Thus, although their single author clientele have seen seventy five percent of Nigerian writing, the Handelbook logo dots the cover and rights pages of academic journals and research issues in United Kingdom, Canada and North America. For instance, the Library of Critical Writing edited by the duo of Smith and Ce and marketing with African Books Collective is a major feature of this African tabloid.
In the words of the head of international operations, Dr Brown, ‘Our books have given boost to a renaissance of dynamic literature that will serve several generations to come.’ Boasting further, he claims: ‘We have demonstrated, over the years, our commitment to the vision of a continent aligned with the digital heritage of instant knowledge and information exchange with works that can earn their stay.
‘Our wake has seen a harvest of expressions evident from titles that have become important referrals in literature and culture. This distinction is further strengthened by our affiliation with Africa Research projects on world-wide web.’
What sounds like fixation on ‘world wide web’ is only their concentration on digitalising books for easy transmission. They call it the e-revolution!
The Handel eBook program
Since the year 2000 when they first launched the electronic book, the group have converted several important publications to eBooks, thereby boosting the reach of authors to a dynamic internet age. A writer may now explore the opportunity of increased commercial traffic for books using e-solutions aimed at aligning even the remotest continental region to the global network.
‘The e-book program is easy and cost-effective whereby you reach readers through online bookstores,’ says Brenda, head of graphics. When you join this super highway of online solutions, our global research outlook will prod you to cognitive growth in the region.’
Note well that a Handelbook would not come in the rough-ready pattern of popular printing market. As the chief explains: ‘Firstly, we will assist to proof, edit, and refine your work with the services of professional copy editors until the quality of your manuscript meets refereed standards. ‘Secondly,’ he adds, ‘except where not necessary, we will assist with graphics. Our media team is among the bests. ‘
Afterwards you may then proceed to publish your work on terms convenient for you.’ Convenient because, even on a modest budget, our African global network can link you with the latest affordable tech. Local presses are also on hand to bring cheaper printing services you can expect anywhere.

‘ Hereto in three simple steps,’ says the chief –
‘1. Have your manuscript reviewed

‘3. Get published and start selling!
‘And, boy, do we make your work come alive!’
