4th Floor Press, Inc. began operations in 2004, before the self-publishing boom. At that time, authors looking to produce their own books were often left to fend for themselves. They had to find designers, editors, illustrators, printers, and legal registrations without much guidance. The idea behind 4th Floor Press was to take these worries off the author’s plate, so they could focus on the content of their work. Our mission was to help authors succeed on their own terms—a mission we have accomplished time and time again over the past decade of operations. While self-published authors have many more options, and opportunities, in today’s book market, the foundamentals haven’t changed. Publishing a great book takes a team of professionals, and 4th Floor Press is that team. We have wonderful editors, spectacular graphic designers, original artists, and the best printers in the country, all ready to help make your publishing dreams come true.
At 4th Floor Press, Inc., we’re proud of the books we produce. Whether it’s a memoir, a novel, a showcase coffee table book, or an eBook, we handle every aspect of production, working with the author to create the perfect reflection of their work.
Over the years, 4th Floor Press, Inc. has produced two Silver Medal and one Bronze Medal IPPY Award Winners. The IPPY Awards (Independent Publisher Book Awards) acknowledge the best independently produced works (from both traditional and self-publishers) in 65 categories from across North America. Every year, we publish books that compete on the world stage, and win.
