About New Degree Press

What makes us different?

We are at the intersection of self-publishing and traditional publishing. Our mission is to help creators "Create. Demonstrate. Inspire."

We have built "The Creator Platform," an innovative approach that ​allows our Creators to use their books as tools to Grow Momentum, Create Engagement, and Drive Outcomes.

Also, we do not collect any Royalties from our Creators. You keep the rights and the royalties. We just want to help you publish, and then help you use your book to create impact.


We are building New Degree Press to act as a next generation publisher and production agency for the new media landscape.


New Degree Press is partnered with the Creator Institute. Through our partnership we published more than 100 authors in our first year.

Follow the journeys of our creators on The Eric Koester Creator Institute Show (LinkedIn Series).

New Degree Press was awarded the USASBE Excellence in Pedagogical Innovation Award with Creator Institute in January 2018.
