Company Mantra

Sunmark Publishing.

Your life in your hands

A Sunmark book is physically light, yet it contains much energy from many people. Consider the author’s lifelong effort, the editor’s enthusiasm, possibly an artist’s visual contribution, the printers’ dedication, the hard work of the sales staff, the long hours from the delivery team, plus the care and attention from the bookstore workers. Then, of course, the critical participation of the reader, who we hope may be inspired by the book and carry this energy onwards in life.

A message from the President of Sunmark Publishing

Sharing our mutual ideals and passion,
so books may continue to be loved across the world

 

Nobutaka Ueki

Publisher and President, Sunmark Publishing Inc.

For over 40 years our company has published numerous, enduring bestsellers. In just the last 2 decades Sunmark has produced 6 million-sellers. We are truly thankful to the increasing number of readers with whom our ideas and ways of thinking resonate.

Books that are loved and popular throughout generations often hold global truths. At Sunmark, we constantly strive to produce such books. In other words, rather than chase after the transient mainstream, we are more concerned with making books that have their own energy, and developing that energy to its highest possible level. We believe that for books to continue to be read far and wide, they must contain a truly special and original energy.

In order to make such books, the creators must devote their full power and passion to their job. This includes Sunmark’s helpful, persistent, meticulous work ethos, dedicated to delivering the best possible finished product into the hands of the author and reader. This takes a united team of dedicated people in editing, sales, and production, who all share the same ideals. Overall, combining talents to provide authors with the intellectual stimulation, motivation, and support often needed to make great books. This is the cornerstone of Sunmark Publishing’s philosophy and the ideals we seek to fulfill daily.

We believe that the truth is always written in a straightforward manner. By rephrasing complicated concepts into simple terms. Making deeper ideas more palpable. In our own small way, Sunmark aims to provide our readers with new surprises and warm encouragement in paving the way through life.

Wherever there are people, there is also sadness, suffering, happiness, learning, and work that never seems to end. We strive to see through the eyes of our readers so we can pass on the energy and passion of people across generations and countries.

Welcome to Sunmark Publishing. We sincerely hope you enjoy our books.

Sunmark Publishing Philosophies

Why do we write books? Of course, we do it 100% for the readers

You need to think about whether it's a book that is worth the cost, and if it causes a change or leaves the reader satisfied. Always put yourself in the readers' shoes as you give shape to the most important message of the book.

An editor who cannot decide on a goal is not an editor

It doesn't make sense to do an editing job that doesn't go beyond a smooth process. You must think about how to make the most interesting part of the book also the most exciting for the reader. Always have a clear image of the "crux" and produce a book that has a resolution.

Having the courage to keep changing!

In order to change the world through your work, the first thing you need to do is decisively change yourself. Rather than rely only on instructions that were given in the past, refuse to be satisfied with the status quo. Be determined to continue growing day by day and you will melt preconceptions.
