Welcome BenBella!

By Caroline O'Connor | July 1 2021 | AdultsGeneralAllBlog

BenBella is an adult publisher who publishes a range of nonfiction (and the very occasional fiction title) in a wide variety of categories, particularly, quality nonfiction aimed at a niche market.

They publish in health and nutrition with exciting titles such as The Happy Herbivore series and serious but highly commercial nonfiction in the categories of science, culture, and current events like, When the Uncertainty Principle Goes to 11 . In addition, they excel in the business category with a mix of popular and inspirational titles as well as strong long-term sellers.

BenBella has a great list of pop culture/celebrity titles, with bestselling books such as The Actor’s Life and Family Don’t End with Blood. We are also particularly excited about their imprint, Smart Pop Books, a collection of smart and entertaining critical examinations of television, movies, comics, and books.

Last but not least, BenBella also publishes selected books under the “BenBella Cause” program in which they publish books associated with a worthy cause and donate half of the profits back to that cause.
