About Skyhorse Publishing

Skyhorse Publishing, one of the fastest-growing independent book publishers in the United States, was launched in September 2006 by Tony Lyons, former president and publisher of the Lyons Press. The company has had fifty-two New York Timesbestsellers and has over 9,000 titles in print.

Skyhorse is dedicated to publishing books that make people’s lives better, whether that means teaching them a hobby, bringing them a unique and important story, or encouraging them to fight against injustices, conspiracies, or abuses of power. The company maintains a firm stance against censorship and aims to provide a full spectrum of political, theological, cultural, and philosophical viewpoints to counter the increasingly biased environment in mainstream media.


“Tony Lyons is the perfect embodiment of an entrepreneurial spirit.  He and his team at Skyhorse continue to take chances with authors and books in a way that others do not.  Their fearless support and clever marketing of publications they believe in, can be especially appreciated by new authors trying to break through.  My experience has been first rate from the beginning.  Tony takes a personal interest in each of Skyhorse’s projects and his team is made up of professionals who bring a human touch to a process which can be unnecessarily brutal in other firms.  Maybe one of the most impressive things about Skyhorse is that they not only bring wisdom and guidance to their publications, but they also listen.  They allow the author to be heard and to be a part of the process.  For me, the book I wrote was an adventure for sure—but the fun of working with Tony and his team in actually going through and understanding the art of getting a book published and marketed was equally meaningful.  That was completely unexpected and greatly appreciated.”

—Kent Heckenlively, author

“In the era of corporate dominated mainstream media and feckless herd reporting, Skyhorse's willingness to tackle tough issues that other publishers won't touch has made it a critical cog in our democracy.”

–Robert F. Kennedy Jr., New York Times bestselling author
