THE ALOHA WAY

Who We Are

Established in 2004 as a publishing consulting company, Aloha Publishing began providing full-service publishing in 2009. 

 

The Executive Team is comprised of business professionals skilled at publishing, writing, and coaching. We thoughtfully pair our authors with the ideal team member.

 

We are poised to usher you confidently through the publishing process so that you may feel empowered on your journey to authorship. 

Who We Help

Aloha publishes, consults, and coaches for industry leaders with innovative ideas and those new authors who are building an audience or have a niche platform.

 

We partner with business owners, entrepreneurs, companies, and not-for-profit organizations for publishing in print and digital media.

 

Our authors provide meaningful content focused primarily on business, health, humanitarian, and inspirational topics. 

How We Differ

Our mission to give generously and with kindness enables us to cultivate a network of outstanding vendor relationships, a benefit we pass on to our authors.

 

We embrace open and authentic communication by involving you in each milestone along the route to a completed book.

 

By publishing across multiple delivery platforms, in both print and digital format, we ensure your message reaches the next generation of readers.
