About Atmosphere Press

Founded in 2015 by Dr. Nick Courtright, an author and PhD in Literature, Atmosphere Press is a hybrid book publisher based in Austin, Texas. As ethical and author-friendly hybrid book publishers, we were built on the principles of Honesty, Transparency, Professionalism, Kindness, and Making Your Book Awesome. We stay true to that founding mission today. We’ve published nearly 1000 books, our authors have won dozens of awards, and our books have reached the hands of tens of thousands of readers. Here’s our Team, and here is what our authors have said about working with us.

What does this mean for you?

You can trust that you’ll receive the best for your book. Atmosphere Press has an editorial staff of well-credentialed MFAs, PhDs, and published authors. Our award-winning cover design team makes author aesthetics come alive, while staying on point with current trends. And our distribution and publicity teams consistently get glowing reviews for our books and excellent sales for our authors. That means you.

You’ll have other friends on your side.

We’re partners with or members of the International Book Publishers Association, The Authors Guild, Writer’s Digest, Writing Magazine, Ingram Content Group, Kindle Direct Publishing, The Association of Writers and Writing Program, Kirkus, The Writer, Independent Book Review, Winning Writers, and many others. We’re also an A+ Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau. And while we operate remotely, our team of book publishers has strong connections throughout Austin and the state of Texas for authors based in the area. Your book is in good hands.

Your publisher contributes to the greater good.

We’re also proud to sponsor the Playa Flamingo Writing Residency in Costa Rica, which annually awards one free residency to a talented author to work on their creative project in beautiful Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. We donate to the World Literacy Foundation and to the Inside Books Project to help the disadvantaged and incarcerated learn and improve through the power of reading.
