1. Why did you choose to open your own publishing company?
With all the changes in the publishing industry, this is an exciting time to be an author and a publisher. We were at a crossroads in life, and as a freelance editor, some great manuscripts were coming across my desk that were being ignored by the larger publishing companies. A desire sparked to help change that.
3. What does your publishing house have to offer the author?
Our company isn't for everyone, and we realize that. (We didn't at first - so that is growth on my part.) Some writers feel they're not "legitimate" unless they're published by a large press, but our goal is to get the author visibility and get their books out to readers.
A Dozen Apologies is our Valentine 2014 collaborative project - check our blog right now for all the details. We'll be announcing (or have just announced) another contest for next year.
4. What genre/style are you most interested in? What are you looking for?
For nonfiction, I'm open to various ideas, but prefer books that point people to Jesus in whatever book form that takes.
5. How and when can an author submit to you?
We're open for submissions, although it may take me a little longer to respond during the school year. (I'm currently a full-time college student.) Our submission guidelines are on our websites - WriteIntegrity.com and PixNPens.com.
