A Few Words from Innovo Publishing's Founder

Bart in Brussels LR
Hello, I'm Bart Dahmer, founder & managing partner of Innovo Publishing, LLC. I am a Christian, husband, and father, as well as an ordained deacon and Gideon. I'm a business person and life-long learner with a passion for glorifying God through writing, publishing, and helping others do the same.
Over the course of my career in industry, I've had a growing desire to use my business, human resources, and information technology experience to start a publishing company for the Christian and wholesome markets. After much counsel, I set out on a multi-year adventure to understand firsthand the challenges authors face today.

I started from the beginning by writing a novel, and then I realized the learning process was only just beginning. After more than my share of rejections (and much humbling), my book was accepted by a mainstream publisher. But I wasn't convinced this path was the only way to go in today's publishing market. It wasn't just the contract terms but also where the industry was headed.

Part of my management career at a Fortune 50 company was helping release new technologies and software applications to the world. In this role, I saw many new technologies disrupting older business models. Businesses have to change or risk becoming obsolete. I could see this type of disruption occurring in the publishing industry, so I decided to explore the newer roads.

But even with manuscript in hand, there were many things to consider regarding Christian and wholesome publishing—much of which you may have asked yourself. With this as the backdrop, I decided to earn my stripes by researching and personally performing each of the major functions for preparing, publishing, marketing, promoting, and selling my book myself.

I will confess that I had my share of frustrations and bruises along the way, and it took a lot of time. But I completed all the steps with my own book, and it was the first book published by Innovo. Being there on the front lines, so to speak, helped me to understand the frustrations and challenges faced today by authors with Christian and wholesome books, and it certainly helped shape the culture and practices we've embraced as I formed Innovo (meaning, "to make new") Publishing, LLC.

As a result of these experiences, one of our primary goals at Innovo is to provide trusted, affordable, full-service publishing packages and services to Christian authors, artists, and organizations to help get your books, eBooks, audiobooks, music, screenplays, film, and online and physical curricula to the global market fast and hassle-free.

Along the way, we established the capabilities to provide Independent Self-PublishingCooperative Publishing and Traditional Publishing. But regardless of the publishing model or the type of title you want to publish, we want to be your trusted partner—someone you can turn to and count on for honest, professional support for your publishing dreams.

So, let me close with this: if you have a Christian or wholesome book that you dream of publishing, I'd like to help you do just that. As a Christian full-service publisher, we'll do our best to provide a book you will be proud to call your own with an honest, straightforward process. I hope you will give us the opportunity to get to know you and allow us the privilege of helping bring your publishing dreams to life.
