The Sourcebooks Story

Founded with just one professional finance title, Sourcebooks was started in 1987 by Dominique Raccah. Over the years, Sourcebooks has grown and flourished by following its independent vision and by publishing extraordinary authors and unique books with readers in mind. Noted for its strong publicity and marketing efforts on behalf of its authors and retailer partners, Sourcebooks stands today as one of the leading and largest independent publishers in North America.

In 1996, Sourcebooks added Casablanca Press with its love- and romance-oriented self-help books. The Casablanca imprint has grown to encompass relationship, sex and wedding titles and in 2007 began publishing romance fiction. Sphinx Publishing, a publisher of consumer-oriented self-help law books, joined Sourcebooks in 1997, and in 1998 Sourcebooks purchased Hysteria Publications, a Connecticut-based publisher of humor and women’s interest books.

In the year 2000, Sourcebooks launched its MediaFusion imprint, today the nation's leading publisher of integrated mixed-media projects. 2001 featured the launch of fiction imprint, Sourcebooks Landmark, so named to reflect the quality, value and longevity of its books. In 2004 and 2005, Sourcebooks began developing its first calendar list, dedicated to publishing unique and content-full wall and box calendars.

The children’s imprint, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, started in 2007; 2010 ushered in an imprint for young adult audiences: Sourcebooks Fire, committed to bringing exciting voices to the next generation of readers.

Today, Sourcebooks continues to publish authors in countless subjects and styles, and in formats both classically physical and dynamically digital. The eclectic and exciting breadth of its list—nonfiction in most categories, commercial and historical fiction, romance novels, gift books, college-bound materials, calendars, children’s books and more—is unmatched anywhere. Its future is guided by its continuing commitment to reaching readers with books that will illuminate, inspire and enlighten their lives.
