New World Library
|Founder||Marc Allen and Shakti Gawain|
|Headquarters location||Novato, California|
|Distribution||Publishers Group West|
The fledgling firm's first three books were written by Marc Allen; the fourth book they published, Shakti Gawain's Creative Visualization, released in December 1978, became a bestseller under the guidance of Sky Canyon (aka Jon Bernoff), who was President and Publisher from 1979 through 1986, selling over 3 million copies in North America to date, and another 3 million copies worldwide. The success of Shakti's book launched the new company as a source of books for the creative and New Age communities.
Today, New World Library is based out of offices in Novato, California.
New World Library publishes books in subjects such as animals, business, Celtic studies, children's books, current affairs, health, literature and writing, mythology, Native American studies, personal growth, photography, psychology, relationships, religion, Spanish language, women's studies and yoga. It has published a number of bestselling titles, including The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle (a New York Times bestseller for 100 weeks), The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra, Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman (through its H J Kramer imprint) and the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series, including the acclaimed 2008 edition of Campbell's classic The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
