In every good relationship, being on the same page about the important things is key – the author-publisher dynamics are no exception. As a publishing house of repute, we take that quite literally, of course – all puns intended. Assistant editors Tanja Ferscha and Nina Pfeiler-Galos give insights in the assistance of authors at novum publishing.
Books have this wonderful ability to transport us into a whole new world or universe, all in a matter of just a few sentences. Novum publishing has picked out the crème de la crème of the United States’ best book festivals to give you an overview for you to pick from – but be aware, the choice is everything but easy!
It is a fact universally acknowledged that every good book is in need of an adequately decent title – and so, every good author finds themselves in search of the perfect book title. This search being an endeavor not always met with immediate success, a new author is always wise in having a few literary tricks upon his sleeve.
Publisher Wolfgang Bader gives insights on how novum publishing is helping new authors in getting their books out and about and why neither publishing houses run on printing subsidies, nor debut works belong into prejudiced boxes.
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!
