ABOUT JOHN HUNT PUBLISHING

At John Hunt Publishing we are building a new kind of publishing company, based on a more equitable author/publisher relationship.

For our authors we provide an automated production system, forums, a marketing database with over 40,000 contacts and other online tools to produce and market each book. We partner with our authors on marketing, reaching all the traditional bookstore markets for print books, worldwide, and all online retailers.

Everything is based on transparency. Authors can see everything that’s going on, including monthly accounts. They have access to our contacts database, can add to it, can even get involved in the business. Most of the people working here came into it as authors.

And it doesn't get any more transparent than this: below you will see a real-time snapshot of the data in our system. The numbers are just presented here to demonstrate the kind of company we want to be... where authors pool resources because we are stronger together.
