Dollarbird: blue-green roller usually seen perched alone high in a tree on a bare branch. First described in 1766 in Java by Linnaeus and named for the distinctive coin-shaped markings on its wings. A frequent visitor to the raintrees overlooking Monsoon Books’ first office in Singapore.

Publishing Asia

Dollarbird was established as a new imprint of Monsoon Books in 2019 to add a hybrid component to an existing and well-known publishing house with a proven track record in the field of Southeast Asia-based fiction and narrative nonfiction with over 200 writers in its stable of authors.

Dollarbird’s vision is to become a leading imprint of books on Southeast Asia as well as a leading hybrid imprint in the industry. Its goal is to produce books that are critically acclaimed in the market, discover new authors and support authors in their growth as serious writers.

Dollarbird uses an author-subsidized business model and in exchange returns a higher-than-industry-standard share of sales proceeds to the author in the form of paperback and ebook royalties of 50% of the publisher’s net receipts.
