GoodKnight Books is an award-winning boutique publisher that specializes in biographies and non-fiction works of Hollywood's Golden Era. GoodKnight Books was founded in 2009 as an imprint of Paladin Communications, producers of educational DVDs and related materials that have been recognized by the American Association of Museums, Smithsonian Institution, Mount Vernon Ladies Association, and Colonial Williamsburg.
The mission of GoodKnight Books is to deliver niche books to the marketplace that are "firsts" in terms of topics covered or approach taken. To date we have published the first-ever full-length biography of a Hollywood house; the first book about Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland; the first deluxe hardcover devoted to the marketing of classic motion pictures; the first book to examine the plane crash that killed actress Carole Lombard and 21 others; the first to fully explore actor Jimmy Stewart's combat record in World War II; and the first to examine Audrey Hepburn's life in Holland under Nazi occupation.
We offer our books in print editions and e-books in all popular formats as well as select audiobooks. We are in growth mode and actively seek new works to publish, if they have potential to cross over from the Old Hollywood niche to a more mainstream audience.
GoodKnight books are printed in the U.S.A. and offer the highest quality in terms of writing and editing, design, and printing and binding.
