About Bennion Kearny. Bennion Kearny is a publishing home for non-fiction writing for general audiences. (We have also begun to develop fiction and popular entertainment titles, recently, mind you.)
Our mission at Bennion Kearny is to provide readers with the highest quality of books and eBooks from the best authors in any given field. Our books, eBooks (and eLearning) strive to provide people with information that teaches them about new things or which can empower them to get things done quickly and easily and without jargon. Many of our books are practical and look to equip readers with key skills that aim to move their abilities and knowledge bases forward. Our long term dream is to make Bennion Kearny the industry leader for books in any given area for quality, affordability, and platform availability. On this final point, we understand that readers in the 21st century want their books on their iPads, Kindles, and Nooks – and we also understand that paper is still a fantastic medium. We shall continue to offer our books wherever and however our customers want them.
BK’s first title was the parapsychology book The Hidden Whisper, and since then the company has begun to establish itself as a principal publisher in a number of areas. For example, our soccer books have garnered praise across the spectrum and include titles from authors including Matthew Whitehouse, Ray Power, Gary Curneen and Dan Abrahams. The same is true for our sport psychology books including our golf psychology books which include the critically acclaimed “Golf Tough” and “The Successful Golfer” titles. In turn, our self-help books cater to a wide variety of audiences including business professionals, sporting athletes, women, and world travellers (amongst others). If you work in the probation industry – we offer a number of Probation Workbooks for topics including: alcohol awareness, thinking skills, anger management, and employment. Finally, we have also published biographical books (soccer), titles on music and bands, and a fantastic book by Dualta Roughneen on his time spent in North Korea as an aid worker! Our books have been translated into Japanese, Czech, Spanish, Romanian – you name it!
Striving for best practice – BK has created a first class author-centric model to ensure our authors receive industry-leading financial and non-financial benefits from the partnership. At Bennion Kearny, we don’t treat our authors as commodities. Our founder was an author before he became a publisher and he understands what a publishing house should stand for. For us, our authors are the most important part of our business and the greatest human asset we have. Therefore, we provide the very best deal that a full service publishing house can offer but in a far more personal way – working with the best people for the long term. If you are thinking of writing a book – drop us a line. There are details, as to what we are looking for, on the Author page.
Using Artificial Intelligence to Write Books
From a technological perspective, it seems clear that we are now entering a phase in publishing where commercially viable content – created using non-human, AI authors – is close at hand. Whilst we love our human authors, we recognise that change is afoot, and that to remain successful moving forwards, a parallel track for book development and publishing is required. Accordingly, at Bennion Kearny, we are pioneering the use of Artificial Intelligence author systems to write and develop books. We aim to launch our debut titles before the end of 2018.
