NEON BOOKS is different than other publishing houses in that we don’t publish one, two, or three books a year – we publish 30+. We are experts in the four key functions at the heart of all publishing: Acquisition Editing Design Marketing
What this means for NEON BOOKS authors is that they can be confident their work will be given every chance to succeed. Our editorial team spends more time with our books. More time means more opportunities to discover and develop a story’s potential.
Dirk Hartog, Managing Director: “We are different to other publishers because we put more effort into the actual process of getting our books published. We look for that key concept and develop the book’s story from it. We do this through a collaborative and creative process with our authors. The best way to describe it is that the finished product is like a sculpture the author has created, turned over in their hands several times, but when NEON BOOKS publishes it, we carefully polish off any rough edges until it’s ready to be dipped in gold and given to readers.
1.NEON BOOKS is not a small publishing house. We publish about 30 new original hardcover books a year, for consumers and professionals alike, with an emphasis on business and marketing topics.
2.We have some of the highest production values available in the industry. We offer models and covers produced by some of the top art houses in the industry, such as John Baisley (Dark Horse), Paul Chadwick (Wizards of the Coast) & Adam Warren (Titan Comics).
We have a 30+ year track record of publishing exceptional work and getting it out to readers.
3.NEON BOOKS publishes a mix of business books, textbooks, and genre fiction – including non-fiction, science fiction, fantasy and horror. We also publish graphic novels and comic books.
4.Our publishing process includes many opportunities for our authors to be involved during the editorial phase, as we work with them on their art and writing. Authors typically work with the editors assigned to their manuscript throughout the entire production process.
5.All of our books have a unique “About the Book” blurb that accompanies their front and back covers, along with a 2-page full-colour interior spread. Each book has a “Bio” section that gives an overview of the title’s author.
6.We offer some pretty big, big print runs at low prices, all because we offer an effective look, feel and reading experience that doesn’t typically exist in other publishing houses.
7.Daan van den Berg, Business Development Manager: “Although it’s tempting to think that quality matters, we’ve found that quality has little to do with success – nobody reads a bad book. Failure is a great motivator. We strive to produce high-quality books which are a pleasure to read and that can easily be marketed effectively.”
8.The combination of NEON BOOKS’ experience in the field of publishing and our philosophy on how to go about producing quality books make all the difference in our authors’ success story. They know that their work will be given the best chance possible, and they have access to experienced editors and designers who have been working together for years.
9.Intellectual Property Lawyer: Nienke Malsch states that “the book is a perfect object to protect intellectual property, since it is unique in its ability to combine text and imagery into a single protected unit. That’s why you see so many books being protected by copyright through the book’s illustrations alone. By publishing with NEON BOOKS, you are protected against plagiarism, as well as against copyright violations such as copying the book’s layout or artwork.”
10.NEON BOOKS and its authors share one thing: their belief that the best way to get their books out to readers is to put in the time, effort and money necessary to produce as unique of a product as possible. If you want to be part of this special group, please contact us and become part of “The NEON.”
NEON BOOKS has long been known for producing the highest quality books, with the best commercial possibilities. We have developed our relationships with many of the top art houses in the industry, which allows us to offer a professional product at very competitive prices.
