About Dorrance Publishing

Pioneering Publishing Services for Almost 100 Years

Our founder, Gordon Dorrance, had a dream of becoming a published author. But traditional publishers rejected him. In 1920, he created a better way to get published and founded Dorrance, America’s oldest publishing services company. It’s this pioneering spirit that Dorrance uses to empower everyone “with a book in them.”

Our philosophy is simple: the freedom to publish should be available to everyone with something to communicate. A book created for a few people is as worthy of publication as a book written for millions.

We’ll work with you to customize a turnkey publishing package – including full-service production and distribution, and limited or full-service promotion – that’s right for your book.
