Smashwords Interview

What is Marion Margaret Press?
Marion Margaret Press is a small publisher started by JP Dellova in 2009 in memory of his late wife. He chose ten authors with books and asked them to come in and start the line up with. A few authors agreed to help him with the business set up and production began in 2010. In 2012, the press passed onto Diana Hawkins, along with a few books that stayed with the press. Now the press publishes Diana's books and a few of the beginning author's books and an anthology line. Marion Margaret Press is a hybrid publisher between a self publisher and traditional publisher.
How is Marion Margaret Press ran?
Essentially, it's ran solely by Diana Hawkins, as part of Cacy Enterprises LLC.

We use professional editors and other cover artists on a contract basis per project.

We follow many of the same procedures as a full traditional publisher, but authors are treated as self publishers. The authors receive top royalties amounts, and have full control of the editing and cover art development.

Marion Margaret Press is not a big publisher so much of the marketing relies on efforts from the individual authors, much the same way as self publishing does.

Smashwords book reviews by Marion Margaret Press

  • The Pinocchio Factor on Aug. 30, 2013

    There's good books and then there's great books, and I've had the pleasure of reading one of the great ones recently. For a Christian who loves Steampunk and the Classics, The 'Pprentices, the Puppets, and the Pirates (Alexander Legacy, #2) by Sophronia Belle Lyon kept me going from beginning to end and then I wanted some more! We get all the Christian truth, love, and family goodness mixed in with all the fantastic steampunkery one could imagine. I love how Oliver Twist is the geeky cool inventor we get to see the story through. I'm a bit attached to my God, Steampunk and the authors she draws characters from to throw them into a fun story. Authors like Dickens, Stevenson, Kipling, Doyle, etc. I love seeing the characters presented in this way. The 'Pprentices, the Puppets, and the Pirates (Alexander Legacy, #2) is so entertaining and faith inspiring that I'm going on to get the first book, A Dodge, a Twist and a Tobacconist. Yes, I started with the second book, thanks to the generosity of the author in letting me have a copy. But I'm going on to buy the first of the series and read it too!
