You have a STORY TO TELL

Writing a book is an amazing feat. Good for you! When you're ready for the next steps―editing, design, publishing, and marketing―that's when you should call on us. We've guided authors through self-publishing for more than 10 years. We are a family owned and operated business, and we help each of our authors personally.
Learn more about us here.

We believe authors should have informed choices about every aspect of their book project, keep all their rights, and receive all the profits from their book. That's "independent" publishing.

Types of Books We Publish


Commercial Publishing

Your goal: To sell as many copies of your book as possible. Our method: We prepare the book, design a knockout cover, and distribute it widely in print and online. We'll help you with marketing, too. The best thing? We don't take any of your profits from the books you sell.

"Not For Profit" Books

Your goal: To get your book out there to a specific audience. Your book is a "niche" subject, not a bestseller, and that's OK! Share your writing with your friends, family, business associates, and enthusiasts about your special topic. Our method: We will design your dream book and get it into print. Need just a few copies? No problem. Want to make it available for sale? We can do that, and show you other ways to keep your costs down.

Traditional Publishing

Your goal: To submit your book to an agent or major publisher. The competition is tough, and you need a great submission that's polished and clearly commercial. Our method: Use our manuscript critique service to get a pro editor's feedback. When you're ready, use our copy editing service. We'll even format your manuscript for free to meet submission guidelines.

The book is great, and the cover is exactly what I wanted. I would have never been able to get this far without you.
