We focus on a small number of books – because attention to detail is essential for great publishing.  We want each of our authors to be a bestseller – so we treat them like one.

Think of us as a high end boutique publisher.  Book couture.[/mk_icon_box][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][mk_padding_divider size=”40″ width=”1/1″ el_position=”last”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
