Discover the Handelbook quality
Handel publishing, aka African Books Network, has been, as their punch line goes, Publishing and Connecting Africa for several decades past.
Striding three cities South East of Nigeria, yet, for an online network, these locations seem just a trifle. As media chief Chris Emezue says, ‘our mission on the network is bringing writers to the world wide web; it doesn’t matter from which part of the African region they may come.’
Yet, although their single author clientele have mainly been in Nigerian writing, the Handelbook logo dots the cover and rights pages of academic journals and research texts. For instance, the Library of Critical Writing series edited by the duo of Smith and Ce and marketing with African Books Collective is a major feature of their tabloid.
In the words of the head of international operations, Zito Brown, ‘Our book projects have given boost to a renaissance of dynamic literature that will serve several generations to come.’ He further boasts: ‘Over the years, with works that earned their stay, we have demonstrated our commitment to the vision of a continent aligned with the digital heritage of knowledge and information exchange.
‘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 seems to be a fixation on ‘world wide web’ is only their concentration on a program of 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 program, the group have converted their important publications to eBooks, boosting the rating of authors who wish to make their writing more reachable in today’s dynamic internet age. As an author now you can explore the opportunity of increased commercial traffic for your books through e-solutions aimed at aligning even the remotest region of Africa to the global network
‘Our e-program is easy and cost-effective whereby you quickly reach readers through downloads from online bookstores,’ says Brenda, head of graphics. When you join this super highway of online solutions, your alliance to global publishing and research development will prod you on to exceed the most scholarly expectations of cognitive growth in the region.’
Note well: Handelbooks do not come in the rough-ready pattern of printing and publishing the popular way. 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, except where not necessary, we will assist with graphics. Our media team is of the bests in the arts,’ he adds. ‘Afterwards you may then proceed to publish your work on convenient terms.’
Convenient because, even on a modest budget, the African global network can link you with the latest technology affordable. Local presses are also on hand to bring cheaper printing services you can expect anywhere in the world.
