Independent publisher Sasquatch Books announces the launch of a new custom publishing division called Cultivate Books. Led by publishing veteran Beth Farrell of Sea Script Company, Cultivate Books will help businesses, organizations, and individuals develop their ideas into book form.
“At Cultivate Books,” says Sasquatch Books President Gary Luke, “our clients become publishers of high quality books to help promote their businesses, to provide their company histories to their clients and employees, to share their business philosophies, or to market themselves as experts in their fields. They have more control over the publishing process, the timeline, and the final product than they typically do with trade publishing. And, of course, they make the profits when those books sell.”
For more than 20 years, Sasquatch Books has been one of the country’s leading independent publishers. Known for its innovative and eclectic list of nonfiction books featuring authors such as Nancy Pearl, Lynda Barry, and Art Wolfe, Sasquatch Books has earned a reputation for producing beautiful books and award-winning titles.
In addition to the more than 800 titles it has published and sold through traditional bookstores, Sasquatch has produced a number of successful custom books including Let’s Go On for the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Traditions through the Trees for the Weyerhauser corporation, and John Sarich at Chateau Ste. Michelle for the esteemed Woodinville winery.
Sea Script Company has custom published books for businesses and organizations including The Boeing Company, City of Hope Hospital, Seattle Museum of Flight, Dave Pelz Golf, Dr. Rick Jensen’s Performance Center, and India’s famed Dr. Tejas Patel. Sea Script Company is also known for its restaurant cookbooks featuring culinary icons such as Rover’s, Fairmont Hotel, Ritz-Carlton, Alexander’s Restaurant, as well as vintners that include Peter Michael and L’Ecole No. 41 wineries.
Cultivate Books will offer to its custom publishing clients all of the publishing experience and skill that Sasquatch Books and Sea Script Company have honed over the years. Whether it’s a cookbook of favorite recipes for a restaurant, or a company history showcasing an organization, Cultivate Books will work with clients to tell their story in a compelling and beautifully produced book.
