Cornerstone publishes books that connect with people. We love discovering new voices, unearthing stories and taking them to new audiences. When a book starts a conversation or tops the charts, we get excited because it means people out there are getting pleasure from what we do.
For us, it’s about using our enthusiasm and expertise to bring great storytelling on all kinds of subjects to as many people as possible.
No matter what we’re publishing - a new talent, a big brand name or a backlist gem - we aim to create books that matter to people.
