Interview with Solstice Publishing CEO Melissa Miller
Anaiah Press is a Christian digital-first publishing house dedicated to presenting quality faith-based fiction and nonfiction books to the public. Our goal is to provide our authors with the close-knit, hands-on experience of working with a small press, while making sure they don't have to sacrifice quality editing, cover art, and marketing.
AmazonEncore is a new program whereby Amazon will use information such as customer reviews on Amazon.com to identify exceptional, overlooked books and authors with more potential than their sales may indicate. Amazon will then partner with the authors to re-introduce their books to readers through marketing support and distribution into multiple channels and formats, such as the Amazon.com Books Store, Amazon Kindle Store, Audible.com, and national and independent bookstores via third-party wholesalers.
Being a published author has always been a dream, but one I've realized is fraught with heartache and disappointment as well as joy and excitement. I've become a hybrid author-like the cars-two publishing options blended together. While I still have established publishers, I've chosen to publish some of my work myself.
The publishing industry has changed over the past twenty years. With the astounding leaps in technology, the advent of Kindles, Kobos, Nooks, and tablets has created a whole new and extremely convenient way to read. More and more books are being published as e-books, and for the first time in the history of publishing, authors have choices and can control the fate of their writing. Good or bad? Time will tell.
Learning to format the book, knowing any errors in it were my responsibility, was a daunting task, one which almost brought me to my knees more than once, but I persevered. In indie publishing, a book thrives or dies on the author's efforts alone, but as an indie publisher all the rights to my books are mine. In essence, M. H. Susanne Matthews became a microscopic publishing house. With the help of my good friend Melinda De Ross and Classy Designs, I began releasing those orphan books. I control their fate and the fate of any others I chose to publish this way-their edits, their formats, their distribution, their marketing, in short, everything is on my shoulders.
