About the Company
Golson Media is a quality-focused editorial content producer located
in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. We specialize in producing multimedia
and print content for leading publishers in library, education, and
trade markets and for associations and societies.
Formerly known as Golson Books, Ltd., the company
is increasingly providing digital media, including audio and video,
for electronic and web-based product delivery.
Headed by J. Geoffrey Golson, a 30-year publishing veteran and former
publisher at Macmillan USA, Golson Media works with more than 500 academic
and freelance authors on projects for publishers like HarperCollins,
SAGE Publications, Gale Cengage, Facts On File, M.E. Sharpe, Salem Press, and others. Golson Media
was founded in 2002 and has partnered with General Editors from distinguished
universities and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors to work with our select
group of creative editors, designers, managers, and full-service staff.
Services We Provide
Our team provides intellectual content from concept through final
production phases ready for online, ebooks, and/or print publication. Our staff and roster of freelancers include:
author managers, development editors, marketers, copyeditors, photo and multimedia researchers,
photographers, typesetters, proofreaders, indexers, and other support
staff to ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of new products. Our
services range from providing proposals for new products to executing
a publisher's or organization's own program. Moreover, Golson Media provides pre- and post-publication
marketing support for titles by offering title website creation and maintenance. Major
works are promoted with dedicated websites for editorial updates, author and/or editor
blogs, and community-building around the title.
As the evolution of publishing continues, Golson Media is now offering a new product line to publishers and organizations. We are producing Ken Burns-type videos that can be mounted on a
website or online platform, or distributed via e-publishing products. We have produced a short demonstration video on the history of Alcatraz Prison as just an example of content -- the subject could be any variety of topics. Please take a moment to view the video by clicking on one of the links below. We can produce these kinds of videos in quantity to offer an economical price per video minute.
