About

Iguana Books is a Canadian hybrid publishing house. 

History

Iguana Books has existed in various incarnations since 1991. However, it was relaunched as a sustained publishing program in 2011 by founder Gregory Ioannou. Greg has a long history in publishing; he’s edited somewhere between 2,000 and 3,000 books, taught publishing at Ryerson, served four terms as President of the Editors’ Association of Canada, and is the CEO of Colborne Communications, a writing and editing company, and co-founder of PubLaunch.com, a crowdfunding and freelance marketplace website. He was inspired to start Iguana to address some of the structural problems facing traditional publishing and to help publish top-quality books unable to find a home in traditional houses. Under his direction, Iguana has published over 70 books, whose genres span from mysteries to political thrillers to inspirational memoirs.

Iguana, a subsidiary of Colborne Communications, is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Its current publisher is Mary Ann Blair.
