Balanced Rock Press is a growing independent publishing company located in the beautiful Sierra foothills of northern California. Perched above the fog line but below the snow, we enjoy many months of beautiful weather each year, in a majestic yet tranquil setting. Incredible mountains, forests, and lakes are waiting right outside our door offering  endless inspiration and grounding whenever needed.

Yet, the beat of nearby San Francisco is not too far off. This keeps  us in touch with the energy of the city and the pulse of business. We truly feel blessed to experience the best of both worlds.This wonderful backdrop is the perfect environment for writing and creating.

We publish traditional books, eBooks and audio books. And though we are presently a small company, we are thinking globally. We maintain strong business contacts with the  east coast in both New York and Miami. We plan to attend several of the large foreign book fairs each year including Frankfurt and London. A select number of our cookbook projects will be taken to the annual Paris Cookbook Fair for possible foreign rights sales.

If you are an author, or working on your first project, we hope you will review our proposal guidelines and submit your work for consideration. You will be pleasantly surprised with our expertise and our commitment to you, your work, and your success!

The mission of Balanced Rock Press is to serve our customers by publishing information that encourages a higher quality of life through personal growth, enhancement, enrichment and respect for the environment. We seek to do this in a positive and supportive atmosphere that nurtures the author, in the true spirit of a team effort, while maintaining editorial quality, and profitability.

The books we select to carry out this mission include titles on cooking, cooking for children, gardening, herbs, holistic health, health and nutrition, natural living, green topics, metaphysical, energy work, gemstones, aromatherapy, inspirational, pets, pet nutrition, and women’s issues.

We are always pleased and excited to review new proposals, which we try to process expeditiously. If you have ideas for a book on any of the subjects in our chosen categories and if you find yourself  intrigued by the philosophy expressed in our mission statement, we hope you will think of submitting a proposal to Balanced Rock Press.
