A Disruptive Approach

After spending years working with the publishing industry, we concluded that it was badly broken, unable to meet the goals and timelines of high-profile authors with provocative ideas.

So we designed a publishing company with these authors specifically in mind. Our approach is different from traditional publishers—and that’s just the way we like it. We offer our authors:

Full editorial control of the manuscript. We will recommend the most strategic way to structure a book, and to define its tone and content, but we give our authors ultimate authority on the direction their book takes. This is a dramatically different approach from that of traditional publishing houses, where the editor’s views, not the author’s, define and dictate the project’s direction.

Guaranteed publication. We publish without the representation of an agent, based on our authors’ timelines and the timeliness of a book’s content, rather than the constraints of a traditional publishing calendar.

Ownership of the editorial rights and a larger share of royalties. Traditional publishers pay authors between 4 and 10 percent of a book’s list price. Disruption Books offers its authors royalties of 25 to 70 percent of the net sales.

We bring the know-how. Our authors bring the vision. And together, we turn big ideas into bold books.
