I’m excited to have reached the one hundred article milestone on the Halo Publishing blog. I hope you are enjoying the articles and finding tips and techniques to help you in the process of marketing our self-published book. My primary focus is to find ways to help authors; to encourage them to make their dream a reality. On this Labor Day, I’m here to tell you that working with our authors is a true labor of love and I wanted to tell you a little bit more about them.
I thought this would be a good time to tell you a little bit about Halo Publishing and the authors that we are blessed to have as part of our family. And I say family because that is truly the environment we foster.
As author myself, I know how important it is to have a support network that encourages you along the way. Writing can be a lonely business and to have the support from people who have already pioneered the path to publication can be priceless.
Some people have assumed that because I have written children’s books that we are strictly a children’s publishing house but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, I’d like to take a moment and introduce you to a small sampling of the authors from Halo Publishing who have successfully self-published children’s books, poetry, inspirational memoirs, fiction, and business books.
