Sumner Books is an ebook and audiobook publishing company that provides unique and quality works to our readers and listeners all over the world. We also recruit some of the best writers out there today. Our mission is to represent these talented authors and to make their works available in the easiest and most enjoyable way possible.
Founded in 2003, Sumner Books is a subsidiary of Creators Syndicate, one of the world’s largest distributors of columns and cartoons to newspapers, websites and other digital outlets. Some of our earliest books included collections of columns from political writers such as Roger Simon and Terrence Jeffrey to bodybuilding gurus like Joe Weider.
As the book publishing industry has grown and evolved over the years, we have shifted our focus from traditional print publications to electronic book and audiobook publications.
One of our first projects is to bring back the writings of Horatio Alger Jr. with the “Horatio Alger Series.” This new series includes professional editing, minor language modernization and explanations, commentary, illustrations and optional teacher’s guide or study questions. Publisher’s Weekly once called Horatio Alger “America’s most influential writer,” yet before Sumner Books’ revival, his works had been largely forgotten.
We are changing that, with the goal of offering at least 50 books as ebooks and audiobooks.
At Sumner Books our goal is to bring attention to both established and upandcoming authors. In addition to the classics that date back to the mid1800s, we will provide never before published books to our readers and listeners as well as weekly blog updates from some of today’s best talent. Sumner Books continuously expands its collection in the hopes that our audiences will always find great books that come to life.
