Softcover Publishing

AuthorHouse softcover books are trade paperbacks. Trade paperback is an industry term that describes a book that is of better production quality than a mass-market paperback. Trade paperbacks are also produced in a larger size and offered at a higher price than mass-market paperbacks. Mass-market paperback books are generally cheaply made and printed on newsprint or other low-quality paper, which will discolor and disintegrate over time. Trade paperbacks, on the other hand, meet a higher standard and are printed on high-quality paper.
