President Jack Newcombe and Chief Coordinator of Fluff Ted

We believe everyone has a story worth telling.

We offer personal, tailored advice and services to our writers. We have decades of experience publishing politically, historically and culturally influential writers -- including Ann Landers, Hunter S. Thompson, Andy Borowitz and Horatio Alger. And now we're extending our publishing expertise to writers big and small who are ready to tell their story.

We’ll be there with you from cover to cover.

Our industry professionals edit, design cover art, format and distribute your book through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Google Play. Our marketing team partners with you to launch your book, which will be featured on our virtual bookshelf next to big-name talent and other brilliant writers like you.

We are forward-thinking.

Digital media are the future of publishing. Technology makes it easier for authors to connect with readers and vice versa. We also believe in sustainability. We publish books in a way that limits our environmental impact. The United States book industry consumes 32 million trees each year.

We are bridging the gap between self-publishing and traditional publishing.

Self-publishing is an option. But it’s hard – hard to edit, format, promote and sell. Traditional publishing is another option. But it’s also hard – hard to get a book deal. We give you the tools and expertise of working with a publisher and the freedom and flexibility of doing it yourself.
