Tribute Books celebrates its 7th year in 2011 as a independent publisher for independent writers.
I am proud to provide graphic design, quality printing, national distribution and book promotion for writers with an entrepreneurial spirit.
Publishing a book takes guts. An author needs to possess the courage to share his or her voice with the world. It is an investment of time, money and energy to transform a rough manuscript into a polished work. I applaud risk takers and strive to provide them with an outlet for their creations.
In many ways, it takes one to know one, and I too have rolled the dice throughout my life.
After graduating from Marywood University and time spent as an associate editor for a local magazine, I set up a publishing company - in of all places - Archbald, Pennsylvania - where I was born and raised.
Why did I do such a crazy thing?
Because I love the behind-the-scenes process of creating your book cover, formulating an attractive layout for your pages, faxing press releases to the media to announce your book launch – that's what gives me a thrill.
The best part of my job is when you see your book for the first time on Amazon.com or when you sign your name across the title page at a book signing. I love to see people realize a dream they thought to be impossible.
Because even in these crazy times – isn't that what America's all about?
