Mission Statement

We will earnestly strive to enrich and entertain our customers through reading, by promoting one of our constitutional rights "freedom of speech." And, with honesty and integrity, strive to recognize and promote authors by publishing their works.

Established in 1926, Denlinger's has a long history as a traditional publishing house in Virginia. Today Denlinger's primarily publishes eBooks and short-run digital paperbacks from the Emerging Technologies Division in Florida.

Denlinger's Publishers is not, and never has been, a "vanity" or subsidy publishing house.

For many years the publishing house specialized in non-fiction "show dog," cat, bird, and other pet books, but in the 1950's began to branch into other fiction and nonfiction titles. Denlinger's all time best seller was the title Mandingo, by Kyle Onstott, published in 1957, selling over five million copies. In addition to becoming a NY Times bestseller Mandingo was also made into a movie by the same name.

In 1997, William Denlinger teamed up with his close cousin Gustav Postreich who worked with him in the publishing business in his teen-age years, to form the Emerging Technologies Division in Florida. Early research was devoted to eBooks that were designed to be distributed on floppy disk or by email in a proprietary format that looks and acts like an Internet browser program. Eventually as other companies began developing hand held readers, Denlinger's became one of the very first content suppliers for the former Rocket eBook.

Denlinger's made one more technology leap in 1999 by purchasing one of the first short-run digital book printer binders, which drew the attention of Forbes Magazine.

Forbes article

Back in the news again in October 2000, Denlinger title Paradise Square by E.M. Schorb made international news by winning Grand Prize Fiction at the inaugural Frankfurt International eBook Award. The flurry of newspaper and magazine articles from around the world were not without controversy. There is still much speculation regarding the future of eBooks as well as disappointment that the finalists were so predominantly representative of the major New York publishing houses.

While we feel that the best of the past should be preserved, we also believe that we are standing on the threshold of a new era in publishing. Denlinger's plans on remaining in the forefront of electronic publishing by expanding into new formats and finding new and better ways to bring content to the customer and give new authors a venue for their work.
