Softcover Publishing

AuthorHouse softcover books are formatted as Black & White trade paperbacks. Trade paperback is an industry term that describes a book that is of better production quality. These books are produced in a larger size and offered at a higher price than a mass-market paperback format.

Mass-market paperbacks are generally cheaply made and printed on newsprint or other low-quality paper, which will discolour and disintegrate over time. Trade paperbacks, on the other hand, meet a higher standard and are printed on high-quality paper.
