Independent Publisher since 2011
MQuills Publishing was founded to promote quality innovation in publishing.
Too many new publishers left their writers with only mediocre quality book development and a lack of support. Too many old publishers were only interested in writers who had already crafted successful careers, while simultaneously getting mired in inefficient tradition and bureaucracy. Both established and new publishers strained to adapt to the modern book market.
Consequently, MQuills was created with the directive of designing a new kind of publishing firm which helps develop quality works while operating under the changing realities of an evolving industry.
Our goal is to publish great books and foster writers in their careers. The right words can change the world, but writers often struggle to get their works noticed by the public. We offer the resources to make a good writer great.
The book market has changed dramatically in many ways. The advent of ebooks, self publishing, globalism, social networking and online markets are just some of the disruptive forces of the recent decade and a half that have changed the face of the book market.
A new truth has emerged: an author no longer needs publishers to get their work out there. However, merely meeting needs is a low bar to set. This minimally viable level is not the standard that should be aimed for. While there are clear winners in self-publishing, it is also certain that overall quality has suffered.
An author who goes it alone must learn to be an art developer, copy editor, digital format creator, distributor, contract writer or negotiator, and marketing expert. The competition and the learning curves in these areas are steep. While anyone can learn to do these things, there are only so many hours in the day, and all of these things take away from being a writer.
