Who is Atmosphere Press?

Green Blue Minimalist Motivational Quote Facebook Cover 34

Atmosphere Press is an author-friendly publisher and author services provider accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and partnered with the Independent Book Publisher’s Association, the Association of Writers and Writing Programs, Writer’s Digest, The Writer, Writing Magazine, and Winning Writers, among others. Our authors’ award-winning and acclaimed books have sold tens of thousands of copies since we were founded in 2015, and our Press ethos is to put the power not in the hands of the publisher, but in the hands of the writer, where it belongs. Our Founder and Executive Editor, Nick Courtright, who has a PhD in Literature, an MFA in Creative Writing, and who is the author of multiple books himself, spent years working around and through publishing both as an editor and as a writer, and he came to feel that, too often, writers got the raw end of the deal, losing not just their royalties but also the rights to their material and to their control over their art. That’s why he has built a dedicated team of editors, designers, distributors, and publicists to help authors see their books treated well and with respect so that they can reach the heights they’ve always deserved. 

We get a lot of questions from authors who want help understanding the confusing terrain of the publishing world. The chart below displays all of the key important areas of concern for an author when publishing a book—from artistic autonomy to property rights to publishing speed to the team you’d be working with—and shows how different publishing models approach that area. We think we stack up pretty nicely!
