Company Overview: 

Sunbury Press, Inc., headquartered in Mechanicsburg, PA is a publisher of hard cover, trade paperback, and digital books featuring established and emerging authors in many fiction and non-fiction categories. Sunbury's books are sold through leading booksellers worldwide.

Our Mission:

"Continue the Enlightenment". During the 18th century, a societal shift occurred based on the core values of a strong belief in rationality and science and the critical questioning of traditional institutions, customs, and morals. Out of this era came the Declaration of Independence, the American Revolution, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. This "Age of Reason" has shaped our Western tradition and continues to resonate to this day throughout the globe. At Sunbury Press, we champion these core values and support authors who challenge "the establishment", regardless of their socio-economic status or nationality. 

Company History:

Founded in 2004 by Lawrence Knorr, the company is named after Sunbury, PA - a Susquehanna River town very close to the Mahantongo & Lykens Valleys. The company's first books were genealogical titles related to these areas and the Pennsylvania German communities that thrived nearby.  

Sunbury Press publishes between 120 and 200 manuscripts per year, selected from the 1,000+ received through our submission site. As a traditional publisher, we do not charge our authors for services.  We only publish what we believe we can sell and pay our authors royalties on par or better than prevailing market rates.
