Iam an ex-OFW from Dubai. I have decided to come home after more than 15 years of working abroad due to health reasons. My wife and I have decided to set up a publishing house. She is writing mathematics and pre-school books while I am doing the illustrations and layout.
I would like to ask you on how I could possibly distribute these books through National Book Store. I would really appreciate it if you could help us market our books.

It always comes as good news to me when I meet new people who love to write books. It takes a special kind of person to be a writer. It requires not just creativity and imagination, but patience and perseverance as well.
And especially in your case, I think it is commendable that you have chosen to write books for children. As I have said in the past, there is no better time to start our children’s reading habit than when they are still young. Starting them early will not only help them in school but more importantly, will hopefully become the foundation for their lifelong journey of learning and of limitless knowledge.
You can send your proposal as well as a sample of your book to:
Purchasing Department – Books
National Book Store
Quad Alpha Centrum Building
125 Pioneer St.
Mandaluyong City 1550
I salute you and we look forward to seeing your book on our shelves.
