There is also a dedicated and super-involved staff engaged in decision-making about what to publish, and how to make it successful, while staying true to BK’s progressive and inclusive values. This translates into a highly selective policy on what, and how much, gets accepted. It has resulted in best-sellers from such authors as Brian Tracy, Ken Blanchard, Margaret Wheatley, John Perkins, Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evans, the Arbinger Institute, Richard Leider, Marilee Adams and many more.
Here is a quick look at some of the other factors that make BK one-of-a-kind:
Virtual Author Days: Once a book is signed, but before it is published, authors pitch the concept and plan to the entire staff at BK HQ in Oakland, California. Recently, author days have been made available to anyone on video.
Berrett-Koehler Authors, Inc.: A great community of authors open to anyone who has published at least one book with BK. I have written previously about the terrific author retreats, and while the retreats are only open to members, there is also an annual marketing workshop that is open to others. The next one is coming up soon, July 20-21, in Chicago.
BK Expert Directory: A great way to learn more about the company’s authors, including how to potentially work with them and tap into their expertise and insights.
BK Community: Anyone can join; providing access to exclusive content, book discounts and more.
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, BK is in the middle of a huge sale: 40% of all titles, July 10th-16th. It’s a perfect opportunity to discover some of the hundreds of BK authors, well-known and otherwise, who are the backbone of making this a company that lives up to its Big Idea of “Creating a World That Works for All.”
