Why Radius?

Retain control

Traditional publishing requires giving up control over your release strategy, your image, and even your voice. We think authors deserve better. If it’s not your voice, whose book is it, anyway?

Publish a better book

The big 5 publishers’ volume increases their chance for errors. Our focused approach, through ideation to writing and editing, yields error-free books, every time.

Enjoy flexibility

Our author-centered model enables incomparable flexibility when it comes to when and how you publish your book. We’ll help you develop the perfect distribution strategy for achieving your publishing and business goals.

Think 360°

To us, bookselling is just the beginning. We constantly look for derivative opportunities to turn your story into an audiobook, a film, or a podcast.
