Regalo Press was launched in 2022 by publishing veteran Gretchen Young, who has acquired and edited numerous award winners and scores of New York Times bestsellers. Her eye for books that resonate with readers is crucial to developing works under the imprint’s broad genre focus that includes pop-culture, biography, sports, memoir, social justice, business, female empowerment and fiction.

Regalo unites philanthropy with the business of book publishing by making a donation to a charity of the author’s choice on every deal.

Says Young, “It is our aim to inspire others to give by showing that it can be integrated into the way any industry functions, and to propel our operations toward this end without ever sacrificing the quality of what we publish. Our guiding principle is that the only thing better than creating a great book is harnessing that greatness in the service of others.”

The announcement of the imprint was recently covered by Publisher’s Weekly in an interview where Gretchen shares more detail on her vision for Regalo Press. Read the full interview here.
