Founded in 1994 by award-winning entrepreneur, author, and publisher Milli Brown, Brown Books Publishing Group (BBPG) ushered in a New Era in Publishing® as The First Hybrid Publisher™. Through the company's Relationship Publishing® business model, Milli and BBPG introduced authors to a better, more profitable way to publish by empowering them to retain the rights to their work. Today, our company is recognized as one of the most successful independent publishing houses in the country, and in 2019, Publishers Weekly named BBPG the #2 Fast-Growing Independent Publisher for a second consecutive year.

BBPG’s ground-breaking platform was designed for an author-first approach that combines the quality and experience of a major publisher with the ownership and financial advantages of self-publishing. The cornerstone of our company is authentic, dynamic relationships with our authors, and this collaborative process delivers top-tier books that meet, and often exceed, the production quality of traditionally published titles. More importantly, we give authors an advantage traditional publishers can’tthe opportunity to be directly involved in the publication of their work.  

BBPG has spent over 25 years refining a full-service model that seamlessly merges our industry expertise with the author’s vision. To turn their concepts into market-ready content, our elite team provides vertically integrated editorial, design, production, distribution, fulfillment, and retail services. BBPG also offers turnkey publicity and cross-promotion through our subsidiary, The Agency at Brown Books (ABB). ABB’s scalable marketing, media, and PR services catalyze book-to-brand conversion, and above all, the firm’s customized campaigns help authors achieve their own success story.

The end-to-end solutions available at BBPG and ABB have drawn a prestigious list of authors that includes New York Times bestsellers, Pulitzer Prize finalists, and more. Our books consistently garner high-profile recognition, earning numerous awards including the Independent Publisher Book Award, the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award, the ForeWord Indies Book of the Year Award, the Gold Ink Award, and the National Indie Excellence Award. In addition, our books have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.
