You may have seen me before under the name I Blog For You. I still do...blog for you and other busy professionals. But my primary business is in publishing of non-fiction books.
The Silloway Press is a small, independent publishing company with these seven goals:To publish niche books of primarily non-fiction that are well written, professionally edited, well designed, and beautifully printed To work with writers who believe passionately in what they have to say, and to help them say it To create the means by which authors who might otherwise not be published can have their work in print and available for sale To work with other professionals who provide publishing services at the same high level of competence and honesty that we expect of ourselves To be fair and open in our contracts and dealings with clients and suppliers, and to insist that they be the same with us To recognize our obligation to make a difference in the world by helping others both in our local community and in the larger world community To have fun!
Having goals is all well and good, but what matters is how well you work on reaching them. For us, that means cooperating and collaborating with our authors and the other professionals we work with, while keeping these goals in focus.
The writers we work with understand from the start that writing and publishing a book is only the beginning; that the success of the book depends on a commitment of time, money, and effort to the marketing of the book, and that the author is the person who must lead the way in marketing. The Silloway Press provides tools, materials, information, assistance, guidance, project management, and a cheering section; our authors provide the passion, energy, time, and investment.
The Silloway Press donates a portion of profits to Heifer International (Heifer.org), to the Domestic Violence Center of Howard County, Maryland (http://dvcenter.org/index.asp), and to selected literacy and environmental organizations. We encourage our associates and clients to do the same.
And the fun? That comes from loving the world of books and the extraordinary people who write them. It comes from learning something new every day, and from sharing what we learn. And it comes from laughing…a lot. If it's not fun, it's not worth doing!
The Silloway Press is The Concierge of Publishing(SM). We don't believe in pre-packaged solutions; each book is a unique creation, and each author has specific wants and needs. We let you choose only the services that will add real value without tacking on things you don't want or need. From manuscript to marketing, we can help you reach your own definition of publishing success.
We are proud to be the publisher of Margaret Rome's book, Real Estate the Rome Way. To reserve your personally autographed copy, please visit: http://homerome.com/book.
