Wise Ink Creative Publishing
Wise Ink Creative Publishing is a boutique indie publishing agency partnering with authors to publish with quality, impact, and most of all, strategy. Because we are an information resource first and an agency second, we strive to help all authors be wise. With backgrounds in both traditional and indie publishing, we see the values in both avenues and we bring our authors the best of both worlds—and our authors get all the profits. Our process is 100% custom—no templates or packages for the authors we work with, because no book fits perfectly in a one-size-fits-all publishing and marketing plan. We also bring editors and designers from the traditional publishing world, and distribution partners to help our authors with all retail channels. Plus, our authors get to join our supportive author community—a network of likeminded authors who also believe that indie publishing doesn’t mean cutting corners.
