Publishers Weekly ranked the top 20 book publishers in America by unit sales as measured by NPD Bookscan, and Sourcebooks is #10!
"Claiming the 10th spot on the list was Sourcebooks. The independent publisher’s top bestseller through BookScan outlets last year was The Cellar, which sold about 102,000 print copies." (Publishers Weekly, "Ranking America's Largest Publishers")
In 2016, Sourcebooks saw growth in EVERY category of business, with huge gains in adult fiction, young adult, and kids books.
For Sourcebooks, a publisher founded just 30 years ago, this is an extraordinary accomplishment. It's a testament to our amazing roster of authors and the talented people who show up every morning, excited about what they will create that day.
"I started Sourcebooks in an upstairs bedroom of my home. I never would have dreamed that we would some day be a top ten publisher," said Dominique Raccah, CEO and publisher of Sourcebooks.
"Sourcebooks has grown and flourished through innovation, collaboration, experimentation, and in some cases a real rejection of conventional publishing practice," continued Raccah. "It's what has allowed us to grow the careers of so many incredible authors, and create extraordinary experiences for readers. And it has led to something profoundly different for both our authors and our retail partners."
Thank YOU to the incredible authors, business partners, booksellers, librarians, and millions of readers whose lives we get to touch every day.
"We are at the very beginning of the things we were meant to do. There has never been a greater need for the work that we do, and the world holds more possibilities for us today. I look forward to seeing what we create from here together," said Raccah.
