A Few Words From Innovo Publishing's Founder
I started from the beginning by writing a novel... and then I realized the learning process was only just beginning. After more than my share of rejections (and many humbling), my book was accepted by a mainstream publisher. But I wasn't convinced this path was the only way to go in today's publishing market. It wasn't just the contract terms, but also where the industry was headed.
Part of my management career at a Fortune 50 company was helping release new technologies and software applications to the world. In this role, I saw many new technologies disrupting older business models. Businesses have to change or risk becoming obsolete. I could see this type of disruption occurring in the publishing industry, so I decided to explore the newer roads.
But even with manuscript in hand, there were many things to consider regarding Christian and wholesome publishing--many of which you may have asked yourself. With this as the backdrop, I decided to earn my stripes by researching and personally performing each of the major functions for preparing, publishing, marketing, promoting and selling my book myself.
I will confess that I had my share of frustrations and bruises along the way, and it took a lot of time. But I completed them all with my own book--it was the first book published by Innovo. Being there on the front lines, so to speak, helped me to understand the frustrations and challenges faced today authors with Christian and wholesome books--and it certainly helped shape the culture and practices we've embraced as I formed Innovo (which, by the way, means "to make new") Publishing, LLC.
As a result of these experiences, one of our primary goals at Innovo is to provide trusted, affordable, full-service publishing packages and services to Christian authors, artists, and organizations to help get your books, ebooks, audiobooks, music, screenplays, film, and online and physical curricula to the global market fast and hassle-free.
Along the way we established the capabilities to provide Independent Self-Publishing, Cooperative Publishing and Traditional Publishing. But regardless of the publishing model or the type of title you want to publish, we want to be your trusted partner - someone you can turn to and count on for honest, professional support for your publishing dreams.
So, let me close with this: if you have a Christian or wholesome book that you dream of publishing, I'd like to help you do just that. As a Christian full-service publisher, we'll do our best to provide a book you will be proud to call your own with an honest, straight forward process. I hope you will give us the opportunity to get to know you and will allow us the privilege of helping bring your publishing dreams to life.
