We seek to illustrate His power in all believers through application of the Bible to every subject and every aspect of life and living.
Nordskog entered the Christian book publishing industry in 2006, specializing in a new series of Biblically grounded “Meaty, Tasty, and Easily Digestible Biblical Treasures.” Thus far we have published children’s book, devotional, inspirational novel, Christian history, and unique, applied Biblical faith categories. Exploring various genres, the company continues to search for the best in inspiring, stimulating, Christian growth inducing themes.
41. Cameron & Co
Chris and Nina Gruener purchased the business in 2009, moving it from San Francisco to the North Bay town of Petaluma, with the goal of keeping Robert Cameron’s legacy alive. We continue to publish distinguished titles with an emphasis on art and photography, but have also expanded the company’s list to include children’s books and books of regional interest and local fare. We have three little ones who can often be found tearing the office apart or making photocopies of their hands. Our cozy office is crammed full of books and, in the true small town spirit of Petaluma, we walk to work.
42. Atlas Publishing
We are a small independent publisher based in Murrieta, California, near the heart of Southern California's wine country in neighboring Temecula. From Southern California, we specialize in children's fiction and nonfiction titles, with some occasional adult popular fiction titles. We tend to be drawn to projects with strong, original writing and unique voicing that embrace diverse themes and stories (but without forcing it). Our goal is to provide marketing and distribution platforms that communicate ideas concisely and with transparency. Writing quality matters to us much more than theme popularity destined to fade (i.e., no vampires, zombies, or "girl" trapped in a dystopian future world controlled by evil corporate/political entities, told breathlessly via loosely connected episodes most notable for their numerous improbable plot twists and needlessly gimmicky cliffhangers—thanks).
43. Univelt, Inc.
Univelt, Incorporated is a publishing company whose primary function is to publish all American Astronautical Society books and conference proceedings.
We publish books, proceedings and papers for the American Astronautical Society about Mars Exploration, Space Travel, Planetary Missions, JPL, Mission Control, NASA, Astronomy, Astronautics, Science, Astrophysics, Spaceflight Dynamics, the History of space research, manned missions, planetary studies, satellite technologies, man-machine interaction, effects of cosmic radiation, colonization, rocketry & rockets, shuttles and space stations, interstellar probes, and much more.
44. Seal Press
Seal Press was founded in 1976 and stands as one of the most enduring feminist publishing houses to emerge from the women’s press movement of the 1970s. Seal publishes radical and groundbreaking books that inspire and challenge readers, that humanize urgent issues, that build much-needed bridges in divisive times, and help us see the world in a new light. From humble beginnings—a letterpress in a Seattle garage and grassroots fundraising—Seal Press has grown to become an award-winning publishing house, expanding to their current offices in Berkeley, Boston, and New York. In 2016, Seal Press joined Hachette Book Group, one of the largest publishers in the United States and a division of the third largest trade and educational publisher in the world, Hachette Livre.
45. Sage Publishing
Founded in 1965, SAGE is a leading independent, academic and professional publisher of innovative, high-quality content. Known for our commitment to quality and innovation, SAGE has helped inform and educate a global community of scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students across a broad range of subject areas.
With over 1,500 employees globally from principal offices in Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore, and Washington, D.C., we publish more than 1,000 journals and over 800 books, reference works and databases a year in business, humanities, social sciences, science, technology and medicine. Believing passionately that engaged scholarship lies at the heart of any healthy society and that education is intrinsically valuable, SAGE aims to be the world’s leading independent academic and professional publisher. This means playing a creative role in society by disseminating teaching and research on a global scale, the cornerstones of which are good, long-term relationships, a focus on our markets, and an ability to combine quality and innovation.
46. C&T Publishing
It all started with an impulsive promise back in 1983. When quilting teacher Roberta Horton told quilt-shop owner Carolie Hensley that she wanted to write a book on Amish quilts, but hadn't found a publisher yet, Carolie quickly said that she and her husband Tom would publish Roberta's book. The Hensleys launched C&T Publishing from their garage, with a catalog of exactly one book: Roberta Horton's An Amish Adventure. C&T Publishing’s list of authors includes many winners of the coveted Silver Star and virtually every other major quilting award. These brilliant authors envision new styles and invent new movements. Our staff is made up of avid quilters, sewists, embroiderers, and crafters who love being part of the quilting and sewing communities, whether that means participating in local quilt guilds or sharing their industry insight on our YouTube channel. Our Publisher, Amy Barrett-Daffin, is on the Quilts Inc. Advisory Board, the PubWest Board of Directors, and is a founding member of the Sewing & Quilting Strategic Summit while C&T is a member of Bay Area Women in Publishing. Address: 1651 Challenge Dr, Concord, CA 94520
