Our Purpose Today
When we opened our doors in 1999, we created a new world of possibility for authors serious about publishing. iUniverse is an assisted self-publishing company, founded on traditional publishing roots, valuing quality service and professional editorial standards. But unlike traditional publishers, we believe the best services in book publishing should be available to all authors. It's our mission to help you fulfill your goals as an author. It's our passion, and it defines everything we do.
"Instead of fearfully sticking my novel in a drawer, I moved forward and self-published Still Alice with iUniverse. And the journey that followed and continues has been the ride of my life!"
New York Times Best-Sellers author Lisa Genova
We adhere to a high standard of quality and editorial excellence. Our services follow industry standards and compete head-on with traditionally published books.
Self-publishing a book on your own can be overwhelming. We've streamlined the process for you. From editing to design to marketing, you can rely on our expertise to guide you through the process.
We break down the barriers to publishing. No more rejections or unanswered query letters. Every author should have access to the professional services required to produce a quality book.
Your book is your passion. We promise to treat every book and author with respect and understanding.
Our history celebrates the achievements of our authors – winning awards and honors, being acquired by traditional publishers, and landing on best-sellers lists. It also follows our path as we've evolved to better serve them.Learn More
