May 9, 2002: On this day, WorldNetDaily and Thomas Nelson Publishers, a top-10 company worldwide in its field, created a new book-publishing joint venture, WND Books.

The new imprint debuted with a wide variety of titles, including a book authored by radio talk-show sensation Michael Savage, one by Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris and another by Jack Cashill and James Sanders on the downing of TWA Flight 800.

“Beginning in 2003, we’ll have our own titles to sell – books developed specifically with our readership in mind,” explained WND Editor Joseph Farah at the time. “We believe this will mean significantly higher sales and a major breakthrough in publishing edgy titles that might scare away the major players in the publishing industry establishment.”

“WorldNetDaily is first and foremost an innovative news agency, and our titles will reflect that focus – they will be timely, newsworthy and often examining topics the establishment publishing industry ignores,” said WND Senior Editor and Co-founder Elizabeth Farah.

Five years after its creation, WND Books is still going strong with a partner, World Ahead Publishing.
