In our series “Inside novum” we would like to treat you, dear readers, with an exclusive insight into our daily business: In a publishing house like ours there is always something going on; from our daily team meetings, to proof readings, quality checkups, appointments and talks with our authors. To get a little insight into the bustle of life in the publishing industry, in the first part of our new series, we from novum publishing summed up the process from the moment we receive the manuscript right until the contract is brought to a conclusion.
The Latin word novum stands for something unique and unprecedented.This concept has also been the philosophy of our family-run publishing company for nearly 20 years: Since 1997, the publisher has been THE expert for new authors. The portfolio of our publishing house – winner of numerous awards – includes books from well-known personalities as well as a large number of books written by new authors whom we have introduced successfully to the book market, using our experience and expertise in this field.
Licenses for translations into other languages, braille editions, film adaptions etc. show that there is a great interest in new ideas and perspectives.
Some books were even nominated for literary awards, and won them. There have been thousands of reviews and articles in newspapers and the media, and many of our authors have published several books already. This impressively shows the great potential of new authors – and you could be one, too!
