New World Library Unshelved
Positive news and inspiring views from the New World Library community

Fifteen years after the publication of the bestselling The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle, one of the world’s leading and most beloved spiritual teachers, will join with New World Library to launch a new imprint — Eckhart Tolle Editions.

Tolle will work to identify and develop titles for the line, most of them written by other teachers and authors he has encountered over his past two decades of teaching. He will write a foreword for each title in the imprint and use his formidable social media presence — 1.2 million Facebook fans, 345,000 Twitter followers, and 120,000 YouTube subscribers — to promote them.

Eckhart Tolle Editions aims to reach a broad audience of spiritual seekers. Munro Magruder, associate publisher, said that New World Library has already signed the first two books in the imprint, Parenting with Presence by Susan Stiffelman and The Calm Center: Spiritual Reflections and Meditations by Steve Taylor, both of which will be spring 2015 releases.

New World Library Publisher Marc Allen told me he only publishes what he loves. I told him that there were a lot of little-known works, both old and new, that I love — and the idea of an imprint was born, a chance to publish anything that I find inspiring and worthwhile,” said Eckhart Tolle.

“We’re delighted to be working with Eckhart Tolle on a brand-new imprint in which he will select a wide variety of powerful, life-changing works to support and publish — some new, some hundreds of years old, and all in some way supporting his vision and powerful teaching,” said Marc Allen.

New World Library is distributed to the book trade by Publishers Group West (PGW), with whom they just signed a new three-year renewal and thereby became PGW’s oldest distribution client (32 years).

New World Library is a privately held publishing company with 17 employees. The 37-year-old company is dedicated to publishing books and audio and video content “that inspire and challenge us to improve the quality of our lives and our world.”
