We Heard You Like Books is an independent publisher located in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2015, its goal is to provide a vision of literature attuned to the hidden intellectuals and radical thinkers of the West Coast.

With a unique contract that offers royalties above industry standards and complete authorial control over the text and its presentation, We Heard You Like Books hopes to establish a new model of literary publishing derived from an assumption that the best understanding of any work rests with its creator.

The press will be offering a diverse line of titles in 2016. Featuring a mix of established and debut authors, each of the books will be presented in high-quality editions, with the design and layouts conducted with the approval, and participation, of the writers.
