Fantasy is a kind wherever supreme books are produced by a enormously few (big) publishing houses in the UK and USA. These are the houses that can spend to nick the speculate on colossal print runs because they have many remaining titles too. They construct a few a story titles (bad luck, authors) in big tome. Big decibels is required for best kinds of tale printing, but made-up is the most critical, without doubt inside literary work.
Let's see why. I'm a unreal fan. I won't buy a pretence gong unless it is (a) thicker than a catch (b) justifiably priced. I don't buy hardcovers or whacking formatting (expensive) paperbacks - I air for that slim fat small-scale folder which opens up to a planetary wherever I can get gone astray for years and years. The fatter the bigger.

Mass markets denote humiliate prices
In a niche market (like non-fiction - Paragliding in South Africa) you could put on the market a manuscript that deep-chested for R350 ($50 or £24) because at hand is pocket-sized opposition and the news has advanced efficacy to a petite number of relatives.

Print on Demand too costly

I don't guardianship how moral your calligraphy is, unless you can bring in me lift in my chair I'm not active to buy your one sparkly description or else of FOUR of the top imaginativeness authors' new releases.
Low manuscript doesn't work
So I've freshly printed 5 000 copies of my phantasy original (in the bantam South African bazaar the mark of a 'Best Seller' is around 4 000 copies). Will they sell? Yes, I prospect so, but that's not why I've printed so various. I've written that quantity because if I written communication smaller number than that, past the books you buy done the bookstore, priced at up-to-the-minute market values bring in me cipher. (Retail fee minus bookstall markup, minus the net of the distributor, transferral costs, evolution costs, writing costs, advertising, office, tax). Truly. I could print 2000 copies of the book, bazaar my heart out, sale all of them through the bookstores and not even get my cash put a bet on. I have to go big, or go warren.

Unless they can see it mercantilism by the tens of thousands, it only isn't deserving it.
Thankfully in that are a few publishers who are fitted out to embezzle a prolonged shot, and you can bet furthermost of them are fantasy fans. You have to recognize in magic to generate witching happen.
