Addicus Books Enters 13th Year
Addicus Books is entering its thirteenth year in business this fall, according to founder and publisher, Rod Colvin. “We started in 1994 and published our first title, Straight Talk about Breast Cancer. We hoped to sell the 2,000 copies we had printed. Today, we have more than 100,000 copies of that book in print, making it a best-selling paperback.” That book served as a model for a line of consumer health books, which Addicus Books now publishes. “Consumer health is our niche—we have about thirty titles in that line,” Colvin said. “However, we do consider other titles, too, if we feel they have a good market.” What’s important in getting a book published today? According to Colvin, a former journalist and author of three books, “You must have an audience—people who want your book and will buy it. Many authors have the passion needed to write a book, but they also need to look at the purely business side of the equation, which is: is there a market for this book?”
