Project Description

OUR MISSION

The mission of W. Brand Publishing is to facilitate, produce, and promote positive stories of triumph, survival, diversity, and compassion.

We believe stories must be told and we are not afraid to break traditional industry rules to reach new audiences. We believe authors and their stories come first.

Our Story = Our Legacy. We are grateful to all of our authors for the opportunity to play a role in their story. We are all on this journey together and our goal is to help as many people as we can through our words.

 

 

WHY THIS MATTERS

We saw a big problem in our country today–people are disconnected–they feel alone in this world. They need real-world stories of diversity, of survival, of triumph, to let them know there is someone out there who has gone through what they are going through and feels exactly the way they do–someone to connect to. We believe publishing and promoting authors' personal and positive stories help connect people.

 

 

WHO NEEDS US?

Writers. Publishing is oftentimes inaccessible and challenging because of expense and lack of information. There so many writers who feel unsupported in their journey to tell their story and there are just as many self-published authors who don't know how to market, design, or promote their books effectively.

Our target authors are people with heartfelt, gut-wrenching, and victorious stories to tell, and those who have knowledge and experience that can help others like Life and Career coaches. People who have ideas and stories but do not have the means or knowledge of how to get them to the public.

 

 

HOW WE CAN HELP THIS NEED

We provide expertise across the publishing industry from writing and editing to art direction and design to publicity, marketing, and promotion. We provide the best options for the author to give their story a voice–whether print, blog, eBook, or audio book–we produce the story in the best formats for the audience.

Self-published authors benefit from our marketing, promotion, and publicity services to put their book in front of the relevant demographic and through the correct channels.

 

 

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

We are seeking funding to support authors and give them a voice. It costs between $10K-$20K to effectively produce and promote one book and the process can take more than a year. We want to tell these stories to affect and change lives. We want to connect people and let them know they aren't alone. And we need your help to provide a chance for one more story to be told.

 

 

OUR TEAM

We are JuLee, Marilyn, and Michele. Together we have over 50 years in our respective careers and we are ready to use the knowledge gained through much experience to create a new approach to the publishing industry.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR  STORY!
