About Us

Who We Are

Balboa Press is a self-publishing company specialising in self-help titles that inspire and enlighten readers. We help you publish your self-help book by providing bundles of services called publishing packages. You choose a package and we work with you to fulfill all the services included. At the end of the process, you hold a finished book in your hand and become something brand new: a published author.

From Hay House

Balboa Press is a division of Hay House, a New Thought and self-help traditional publisher founded in 1984 by author Louise Hay. Discover some of the opportunities our authors have thanks to this partnership.

Our Editorial Standards

We publish books that are related to the mind-body-spirit subject matter and that are in line with our core values: to help people improve their lives and the Earth. While we do specialize in self-help books, we publish a wide range of genres that adhere to these standards, including children's books, photography, fiction, poetry, cookbooks and more.

We established these content standards because we want to have a positive impact on this planet. We want to publish books that help readers in their quests for emotional and spiritual well-being. We want our customers to be able to trust us. We want people to have confidence that our books are consistent in subject matter and message.

Works that do not conform to these standards, as well as the standards outlined in the author publishing agreement, will be rejected or cancelled by Balboa Press.

What Our Authors Say

John Norseman | Journey of a Shaman

"Because being in Britain, there's a much more limited market for spiritual books. We tried running it past three U.K. publishers.

Basically, each one said it was too big a deal for them; it was too much risk for their chicken. So we decided to go self-publish, and it's proved very successful."
