Publisher info

Skip Crayton and Bill Benners founded McBryde Publishing in 2004 to offer an alternative to the repugnant, “basic no frills” printing services available to writers choosing to self-publish their works. They wanted to provide a good looking, quality product, find distribution, and help writers make a living as published authors.

We welcome novices that are fairly well developed as writers with an understanding of the concept of storytelling and know how to hook a reader.

Our books are available to bookstores and libraries worldwide and are compatible with every eBook reader.

We are searching for high quality writers to be a part of our family of authors.
