Welcome to Buddha Press and its imprints. We have a different model of publishing. We are committed to publishing great works from new and seasoned writers. Our authors will retain 100% copyrights and 100% of their royalties. This includes all three of its publishing imprints:
Ideally, we want writers who are in the middle or beginning of their process and working with our story coaches or developmental editors. Unlike traditional publishers, we find it is not necessarily best to have a finished manuscript. To get the best results we want hard working writers who want to be both appreciated and challenged. The product must be at its best in order to be published by Buddha Press, but we also develop authors, coach them to take the reins of their own career, develop meaningful projects in order to live an author’s life.

Buddha Press was created to help enlightened non-fiction authors get their books published in all electronic formats, for print-on-demand and paper books for direct sales. It is connected to the Vancouver School of Writing whose mission it is to empower new authors in the incredible potential of the electronic age.
Buddha Press DOES NOT publish New Age Books only. Au contraire, we believe a Zen path is to stay open to all things. We are not higher than thou. Just like the old Buddhist caution, if you meet the Buddha on your path, kill him, if we were to proclaim that we were a publishing path to only the spiritually enlightened, then we have lost it. That said, we do have a niche.
Our niche is non-fiction books whose authors fall into one or more of these categories:
Fabulous Entrepreneurs (all of above)
The symbol for the Buddha Press is from actual figurines (their relative sizes were altered) which were separate “gifts” that used to sit on either end of a well-known BP author’s desk, until one day she put them together and a big Aha! went up to the heavens and the A to Zen book series and Buddha Press was born. Not wanting to just publish one authors’ great ideas, it became the symbol for all Aha! non-fiction authors.
