What is an Imprint

The dictionary tells us that an imprint is

 Noun: a mark or impression left behind by printing, pressing or stamping.

Verb: to imprint is to leave your mark, either physically or figuratively. Now there’s a verb that speaks to many authors’ motivations.

Little wonder then, that in the publishing world, an imprint is the publisher’s trade or brand name for a specific group of works.

Your imprint name is different to your author name, which is the name you are writing a single book under. It’s also different to your publisher name.  Are you confused yet?

Find out how it all works on a blog I wrote for Ingram Spark here…
