Publishing family history | Writing creative nonfiction
This is lettering using a quill instead of an apostrophe for the contraction "As Penned"
   We believe the author should be very much a part of the important decisions that will impact the outcome of his work.

   As publishers we:

  • evaluate manuscripts and suggest ways to improve writer skills and content;
  • edit and proof, design and produce your title;
  • ensure copyright and Library of Congress requirements are met;
  • solicit requests for quotation (RFQ's) from reputable printing companies;
  • evaluate bids and advise who best meets cost and printing requirements;
  • execute contracts and set the date of publication; and
  • provide marketing advice.
  • our customers receive all of the royalties from the sales of books.
