Long Story, Short...
As an independent publisher, Radiance Press offers a breakthrough approach to book publishing:
We incorporate public relations tactics within the manuscript development process to ensure the author's reputation is managed long before the book is released.
Many traditional book publishers only offer a cookie-cutter package of self-marketing options for the book launch phase. Authors do not need a postcard or bookmark; they need a strategy!
PUBLISHING POWERED BY PUBLIC RELATIONS
From draft to manuscript, our editorial team integrates public relations tactics such as brand identity and media relations with manuscript development to position authors for success. Our unique approach supports thought leaders with the right tools to share meaningful content with the right audiences - from the beginning of their publishing journey. This perspective differs from traditional publishers who provide minimal marketing support after the book is marketed. Radiance Press focuses on the reputation management of our authors at every stage, ensuring the final publication accurately reflects the writer's image and expertise while maintaining relevancy with target audiences.
PUBLISHING WITH PROFOUND RESULTS
Radiance Press works exclusively in expository (stories that explain or inform audiences on a specific topic without the intent to persuade politically or religiously; non-argumentative) and narrative nonfiction genres (true stories about a person, organization, place, or event, including biographies, autobiographies, family histories, business and nonprofit organizational histories, memoirs, self-help, business, education, and more). We seek to educate, empower, and enrich the lives of others through your insightful work!
All authors keep 100% of their royalties! Some unique writing opportunities that we are looking for include:
An uncommon story that is innovative, breakthrough, honest, respectful, culturally resonant, and rare. It amplifies the voices of the underrepresented with dignity. It shares a narrative that is progressive and brave. These stories do not emphasize hate but promote hope, strength, and resilience through life's challenges.
Uncommon stories are little known; tenacity is required to share these narratives. But when published, they leave a lasting and activating impression that results in positive change.
The storytellers (Radiant Writers) are thought leaders, educators, business persons, nonprofit organizational leaders, subject matter experts, families, communities/neighborhood associations, schools, historians, ministers, and more.
