ARCHER is a publisher for creators, founded by New York book publicist Lisa Weinert and Los Angeles publisher Tyson Cornell, designed for organizations, companies, and/or institutions interested in building publishing programs using their own brands, backlist titles, and debut titles—focusing on narrative nonfiction with a dedicated interest in personal narrative, wellness, social change, women’s leadership, and business, as well as select literary fiction.
In addition to traditional and partnered publishing, ARCHER also offers a wide range of publishing services to bring projects from inception to market, working closely with a bi-coastal in-house and contracted team of experienced publicists, editors, production managers, designers, and digital marketers.
ARCHER is like no other publisher currently in the market, brining together the best of traditional publishing with all the versatility of alternate publishing models, keeping the creator at the center of the decision making process.
"It's about time someone invented a new publishing agency to match the transformative publishing moment. And it's no surprise to me that that someone is Lisa Weinert, who is bright, energetic, entrepreneurial, experienced in old and new media, ambitious, connected, and cares about literature.
