Sahno Publishing evolved out of the notion that literary excellence is more important than a financial formula. The company enters the publishing world with the guiding principle that books should always find an audience, especially if written well. The goal of the company is to help as-yet-unpublished writers reach a wider audience.

There are several problems that unpublished authors often face, even if their manuscript is of a high literary quality. Publishers’ work fits into a financial formula rather than a literary excellence formula, and they typically don’t give in-depth feedback or sufficient review to newly-written work. Most literary authors are frustrated, or even quit, because the current system doesn’t work. And there is a lot of mediocre work that gets published and degrades, undermines, or dilutes the overall quality of world class literature, all in the name of financial formulas.

Sahno Publishing resolves these problems with a world class system that includes a start-to-finish marketing and business coaching program.
