How We Started


Kanyin Publications Sdn Bhd, established in 2002, is a Malaysia-based publisher. Our strong commitment and believe in Asian authors has been our focus, drive and passion in every single thing we do. Our role as Publisher is to add value to, promote, publish, sell and market their work. We strive to create more quality local production to the market.

To date, we have published a wide variety of books from different genres: autobiographies, business, finance, humanities, self- improvement, personal finance, brand management, job-seeking guides, company and personality profiles, MLM success stories, internet marketing, among others.


At Kanyin, we provide a one-stop publishing service from idea conceptualization, publishing project management and planning, writing, translation, copy editing, customized cover design, illustration and layout, proofreading, printing, sales, marketing, strongly backed up with our wide distribution channels.

We are also an Ideas Creation House. We have worked with some medium and large Malaysian corporations to further enhance their brands without using much financial resources and have been able to generate a lot of goodwill; word-of-mouth sales and most importantly, among peers and consumers. We term this method the ‘Branding by Book’ (BYB) concept.

In every Kanyin’s book, lives the soul of the craftsmen. We believe that every book we publish, carries the soul of the author who writes it, and our designer and team who created it. We call them our craftsmen. We publish books that evoke emotions.


We believe in innovation, and therefore try to consistently bring new ideas to our individual authors and corporate clients. We believe in producing only quality publications for our authors/clients and readers.

We realize that each individual and organization has his or its own distinct and specific needs, objectives and brand philosophies. We are here to professionally guide and advise each based on his specific needs, and our team will come up with ideas, design and brand philosophy to suit each author.

Our authors range from individuals and organizations, who we work closely with to bring their ideas to the market. Many authors and organizations realized having a book published with us is an experience they will cherish, and many more will come back to release their subsequent titles.


We supply books to all major bookstores in Malaysia – Borders, MPH, Popular, Times, WHSmith, Kinokinuya, Sinaran Bookstore, Smart Bookshop and KL Commercial Press 商务印书馆, while in Singapore – Times and Kinokuniya. Last but not least, Kinokuniya Indonesia and Phuong Nam Bookstore Vietnam.
