We are not in the business of selling dreams; we are in the business of building brands and creating powerful spheres of influence. And we've been doing it for 20 years.
Greenleaf Book Group is an independent publisher and distributor dedicated to empowering authors. We can partner with you on every aspect of developing and promoting your big idea, from expert branding to book creation, promotion, and retail distribution. We have the capabilities to take your book idea through full project development and production all the way to bookstore shelves. Our award-winning team works with you to create an exceptional book and design a custom-built strategy to ensure its success in the retail market.
The Best of Both Worlds
Greenleaf’s hybrid publishing model is uniquely positioned to offer the benefits of both traditional and self-publishing. We provide you with unmatched publishing and distribution services; you keep creative control, intellectual property, and most of the royalties.To enter this industry is to accept the reality that more than 800 new books are published in the United States every day (Bowker 2013).
To succeed, you must be able to compete with the major players in all areas: production, distribution, and marketing. If one link in this chain is broken, the project will be lost in the crowded book market. We help our clients compete by maximizing quality, opening distribution channels, creating awareness within the book industry, and building successful brands.
One of our primary roles in the expansion of our clients’ businesses and careers is to help them expand their brands and profitability by identifying opportunities for new products and services. To do this, we work to develop a complete vision for their brands, including ancillary products such as videos, workbooks, webinar series, presentations, audiobooks, and more.
From Master Distributor to Full-Service Publisher
Since our start in 1997, we have continually evolved to meet the needs of our authors. The core of our business has always been master distribution to major bookstores, airports, and specialty retailers. Over time, we recognized our authors’ need for top-quality editorial, design, and strategic marketing services, so we built a team of experts to help authors publish and market their books. Greenleaf’s sales-focused approach and author-centric model eventually attracted authors from major publishing houses who were seeking an alternative to restrictive traditional publishing arrangements.
Thousands of projects later (and with over 35 New York Times and Wall Street Journal best sellers), our award-winning editorial and design, robust marketing, and expert distribution capabilities have led to partnerships with some of the greatest thought leaders and independent publishers around the world.
We take your big ideas and make them a reality.
