Welcome back to Officially Obsessed! Today I’d like to focus on one of my favorite publishers- ATRIA BOOKS. While I’ve been a fan of theirs for years, it’s been in the past 12 months that my fondness has grown into full blown obsession. With the publication of a plethora of genres plus multiple imprints under their reputable name, is it any wonder that today they are one of the most popular brands in fiction and non-fiction alike? I thought it might be fun to list some of the reasons why they are one of my favorite imprints to review for and interact with; if you haven’t jumped on board the A-Train, what are you waiting for?
- THEIR LOGOS – Ok, so I’m a sucker for anything nerdy when it comes to books. I am all about the aesthetics in any product I am purchasing, so when I can find a book that consistently creates a palate that pleases the eye, count me in. I adore how simple, yet clean each brand keeps their look; the logo easily blends in with any cover art chosen but stands out just enough to make you notice who’s name is on each book. I’ve come to expect an attractive jacket from any book that bears these logos as it’s obvious that Atria takes time and effort in only producing the best of the best, as we all know most readers do tend to judge a book by it’s cover.
- THEIR COVER ART – I know I mentioned this above, but seriously, Atria always has the best cover art on their books. It’s like they know that we’re more apt to buy the book if the outside is as beautiful as the inside. 😉 In all seriously, I highly respect that they employ the services of only the most talented designers; the fact that they tend to keep most author’s books with a steady theme makes my OCD heart jump for joy and my bookshelf can remain at peace.
- THEIR APPROACHABILITY – If you haven’t had the pleasure of interacting with one of Atria Books social media accounts then you’re really missing out. One of the first publicists I started working with was David Brown @AtriaMysteryBus (<–you can follow on twitter here) and I soon found out everyone at Atria was really nice and friendly! They really prioritize working hand in hand with bloggers to spread the word about their fabulous books and always show gratitude for the hard work we insert into marketing their stories that we love.
Do you have a favorite publisher that you’re officially obsessed about? Atria is just one of many, but I’m hoping to feature a few per month as time allows.
