About The Schiel & Denver Book Group

The Schiel & Denver Book Group is a well-established privately-owned independent book publishing company, with a strong international dimension. Schiel & Denver publishes an eclectic ISBN catalogue of fiction and nonfiction in the UK market. With offices in Coventry and Houston, Texas, the company has trade distribution partnerships through Ingram Book Group; one of the world's oldest and most respected commercial book distributors whose portfolio includes handling the fulfilment of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code (2003) for Random House's UK imprint, Corgi.

Registered as an official Data Controller in the UK under the Data Protection Act 1998, The Schiel & Denver Book Group succeeds by offering authors an independent approach whilst commercial book publishers' lists shrink each year.

Schiel & Denver holds membership with the Association of American Publishers (AAP), Independent Book Publishers Association and the United Nations Global Compact Office at the UN Headquarters in New York. We provide authors with a superior, environmentally-sound book publishing infrastructure, realized with the professional support of our heavyweight editorial staff who are committed to bringing quality books to a growing readership.

Principles of literary substance and old fashioned quality

The hurdles facing today's new author are substantive. In an era where it is almost impossible to convince a reputable publisher to even consider an unsolicited proposal, or read anything from the slush pile, The Schiel & Denver Book Group prides itself on our expertly focused book publishing strategy; whether in fiction or non-fiction, it is our firm conviction we should publish a limited number but a broad range of books and our aim is to identify the best in any category on the basis of literary merit, and publish with an old fashioned traditionalism that is reliable, untrendy and stable.

Drawing from the same editorial pool of experienced book publishing insiders that serve English language trade publishers such as Random House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Penguin Group USA, our dedicated in-house team focuses on getting the most out of each title through uncompromising attention to every stage of the book publishing process, from editing to cover design, the marketing and publicity campaigns and our solid commercial relationships with leading bookstores. All of us here at The Schiel & Denver Book Group from management to our dedicated publishing professionals, love books, love book publishing and want to do our very best to achieve the right results for our authors, whom we keep informed of progress throughout the six month book publishing process.

An enduring Christian commitment to our authors' success

As well as book publishers, we're also a community of Christian publishing professionals, and welcome Christian book submissions that uphold the word of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Many of our authors are vicars, pastors and Christian ministers; importantly The Schiel & Denver Book Group works with STL and SpringArbor in the United States, the two most prominent Christian book distributors that can ensure the first printing of your title meets the appropriate needs and the norms of the Christian book publishing market. This is an often overlooked but critical aspect that too sets Schiel & Denver ahead of the field.
