About Us

We’re a group of publishing industry veterans who bring decades (sometimes more than we’d like to admit) of experience to our clients. We’ve worked with authors and publishers across the literary spectrum — from New York Times bestsellers, Pulitzer Prize winners, A List actors and corporate CEOs to poets, chefs and scholars; from publishing giants to university presses.

Website Design by Nodebud Authors

Actress and writer Kimberly Williams-Paisley is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Where the Light Gets In.

Neil Abramson is the USA Today bestselling author of Unsaid and Just Life.

“Not only did they design us a website that was stylish, clean, and simple to navigate and maintain: they did so with good humor, patience, and tons of flexibility, all at a reasonable price.”
