Created in 1999 by Bernard Fixot, XO EDITIONS publish works geared toward a mass-market audience.
Our vocation and editorial policy are altogether simple and ambitious.
We aim at addressing the widest possible audience with the goal of optimizing sales, both in France and abroad through foreign licenses.
We intentionally publish a small number of titles (15 to 25 titles per year) so as to give a maximum of attention and means to each and every work.
An ambitious strategy allowing us to discover new talents and put French authors back at the top of bestseller lists around the world. We develop major resources for marketing and promotion, and innovative, tailor-made campaigns designed for each launch.
In 21 years we published 435 titles, 307 made it on the best-seller lists, 221 have been widely sold abroad.
