CCI’s parent company to offer business book publishing; independent Imprint will offer traditional publishing as well as self-publishing options for GRC niche business and career-related books
DALLAS, TX (September 1, 2020) – CCI Media Group LLC today announced the launch of CCI Press, an independent imprint that will publish business and career-related books targeting readers in corporate compliance, risk management and business ethics.
CCI Media Group, which also owns www.CorporateComplianceInsights.com, said CCI Press will provide end-to-end publishing services for authors, including editing, design and printing, as well as publicity and book distribution. Traditional publishing and self-publishing options will be offered, with books available in hardback, paperback and e-Reader formats.
CCI Media Group also owns Words & Pictures Marketing LLC, a digital marketing and design agency specializing in content strategy and web design for law firms, professional service providers and SMBs in regulated industries.
CCI Media Group CEO Sarah Hadden said moving into traditional publishing is a “natural evolution” for the online media company.
“CCI has been publishing articles by compliance and risk thought leaders for over a decade, so we’ve cultivated valuable author relationships and have built a loyal base of readers around the world who represent a potential audience for the imprint,” Hadden said. “It’s also a way to strategically leverage the graphic design and marketing capabilities from the agency side of our business.”
Skillful editing and top-notch design are critical to any book’s success — but no less so than the ability to get the book in the hands of those who will buy it, read it and share it. CCI’s access to a niche audience of potential readers is the publishing imprint’s value proposition for authors, Hadden said.
“When you combine our marketing agency’s design and promotion capabilities with CCI’s established network of readers and subscribers, the value to potential authors in the GRC space is unmistakable,” Hadden said.
The debut title for CCI Press will be a book compiled and authored by Mary Shirley and Lisa Fine, creators and co-hosts of the popular Great Women in Compliance podcast. Their book, scheduled for release in October 2020, will be “a compilation of wit, wisdom and advice from women in compliance professions around the world.”
Two additional titles are also under consideration at this time, and CCI Press is now accepting book proposals and manuscripts from agents and potential authors.
