As the world becomes increasingly polarized, political books are gaining in popularity. Whether it’s a memoir from a political figure, an analysis of current events, or a call to action for change, political books are an important part of the cultural landscape.
But for authors who want to publish a political book, the question remains: what publisher would be willing to take on such a contentious topic?
The good news is that we’re willing to do it at Defiance Press. As an author-first publishing company, we believe in giving a voice to authors who have something important to say. We have published numerous political books over the years, and have found that these books can be incredibly successful when done right.
One of the keys to publishing a successful political book is to have a strong and well-developed argument. Political books can be controversial, and readers may be skeptical of the author’s position. By presenting a well-researched and convincing argument, authors can earn the trust of their readers and create a dialogue around the issues they care about.
Another important factor is to have a clear understanding of the target audience. Political books may not appeal to everyone, so it’s important to identify the readership that is most likely to be interested in the book. If you understand the needs and interests of your target audience, you can tailor your message and marketing strategy to ensure that the book reaches its intended audience.
At Defiance Press, we have published a wide range of political books on topics such as social justice, civil rights, and political corruption. We understand that these books can be controversial, but we believe that they are an important part of the cultural conversation. We are willing to work with authors who have a strong message and are passionate about making a difference in the world.
One recent example of a political book that we have published is “Destruction” by Zack Hackert. In this book, Hackert tells a story about the history of the Democrat Party, specifically about how bad and dangerous their policies have been. He details how a few select RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) helped the Democrats by lacking the spine and will to stand up to them and fight for what is right for the American people.
Therefore, if you are an author who is passionate about politics and has something important to say, there’ are publishers who are willing to work with you’s a good chance that we will be willing to work with you. We believe in giving a platform to authors who have a strong message and are willing to take a stand. We have a track record of publishing successful political books, and we are always looking for new authors who are ready to make a difference.

Here are some tips for authors looking to publish a political book:
Have a strong argument
Political books are more likely to be successful if they present a well-researched and convincing argument. Make sure that your book offers a unique perspective and provides evidence to support your claims.
Know your audience
Identify the readership that is most likely to be interested in your book and tailor your message and marketing strategy accordingly. Yes, you need to be thinking about your marketing strategy because in a convoluted digital world you need to treat your book like a business so that you’re able to reach as many people as possible. Doing this will help you reach the right readers and maximize your chances of success.
Build A Platform
Publishers are more likely to take a chance on an author who already has a following or platform. Consider building your online presence through social media, blogging, or public speaking before approaching publishers. If you haven’t taken the time to do this, we highly suggest that you start now, as it’s 10x easier to sell a book when you have an actively engaged audience.
Be prepared for controversy
Political books are controversial in nature, and many readers willdisagree with your message or approach. Be prepared for pushback and criticism, and be willing to engage in meaningful dialogue with readers who have different opinions. Refrain from bashing people because of their ideologies, as this will just welcome negative press.
