A hybrid publishing imprint for the marketplace of ideas
In Partnership With
Political and Policy Books that Start Conversations

RealClearBooks is a new-model hybrid publishing imprint that balances smart, high-quality content with speed to market while avoiding the pitfalls of partisanship and restrictive politics that often come with traditional houses. Powered by RealClear Politics, Gotham Ghostwriters, and Amplify Publishing, RealClearBooks gives authors a seat at the table with political thought leaders and policymakers; access to top quality writing, editing, and content creation; and a time-tested, efficient publishing process to bring new ideas to the table before the political moment passes.

RealClearBooks authors invest in the publication of their book and, in return, receive one of the highest royalty percentages in the business and retain full rights to their content. Drawing on the partners’ passions for diverse perspectives, RealClearBooks open doors for authors with important insights that gatekeepers at major publishing houses might overlook. With an efficient, quality-centered publishing process, authors have the ability to participate in conversations as they happen.
