mel2.embeddedAs the founder, and former editor and publisher, of Fisher King Press, I have experience and connections to resources in the publishing industry and a fair and realistic understanding about what it takes to prepare a body of work for publication. As an author, I am also sensitive to author concerns and requirements.

As a publishing consultant, I work with small press book publishers and independent authors who wish to pursue publication by a conventional press or self-publish. Authors and agencies often hire me to to oversee the publication process of their book, to guide them through the self-publishing labyrinth in order to help them avoid many of the ever-present pitfalls in the self-publishing process.

A burgeoning industry has risen, appealing to lifelong dreams of becoming a published author. In this modern-day digital age, self-publishing vanity presses will turn a writer into a published author in short-order. Nearly half a million new titles are published annually. Self-publishing can be a viable adventure; however, there are many pitfalls that can be avoided.

I oversee an entire crew of publishing professionals who can help you with editing, interior book design, book cover design, hardcover, paperback, and ebook publishing, printing, and distribution, press releases, book reviews . . .
