A Unique and Traditional Publishing Company
PublishAmerica is a traditional advance and royalty paying book publisher, fundamentally opposed to issuing contracts that contain any publishing fees. PublishAmerica was founded almost 15 years ago, at a time when 99 pct of all book writers had only two options: either get rejected and never see their book published, or pay steep amounts to "self-publishing" outfits. PublishAmerica became the third alternative: don't pay, get published anyway.
To date, 50,000 authors have embraced it.
We are a book publisher who put our trust in the big league of unknown authors. They are the great creative force that have carried America's imagination into the new millennium. Our publishing company believes that writers are artists with a mission and a message, and that they are not stupid.
They know that having their book published doesn't guarantee any book sales in and by itself. More than a million new books are released every year, and that's just in the U.S. Today's authors are keenly aware (and if not yet, then upon reading this now) that a book's success depends almost entirely on the author. They must be their own book's number one cheerleader. The publisher does the publishing: producing the book and making it publicly available. But for it to stand out and draw attention post-publishing, after the book has been released, the author also needs to invest: time, effort, creative thinking, or spend money on outsourcing any of these.
PublishAmerica believes that no book writer was born yesterday. If your name is not already Stephen King or Danielle Steel, you are not a celebrity author, nor will you become one. If Random House or Penguin has not already offered you a contract, and you're reading this page, you know that they don't want your book.
And we're here to make it easy and traditional. Free and traditional publishing means: your book produced professionally and beautifully, with first-rate art design, and free illustrations if you wrote a children's book, made available to all bookstores including Amazon and Barnes and Noble and all major British chains, listed with the world's best wholesaler/distributor Ingram, digitally printed and therefore available worldwide, and announced to local and/or targeted national media.
PublishAmerica's CEO and co-founder is Willem Meiners (Amsterdam, 1949).
PublishAmerica is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland at the crossroads of I-70 and I-270, just outside the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan area.
