Working with a publisher

I have several books - non-fiction (business for writers) and fiction that I want to publish. I have been thinking about a DIY approach, with the help of an author assistant. Then I ran across a small publisher in Minn. called Millstream Publishing. Anyone heard of them? Anyone worked with them? 

In general, has anyone worked with a small publisher like this? They do everything from formatting, publishing on many platforms, and i also can get them to send out review requests, do some publicity. It sure would be nice not to have to do it all myself, in terms of time.

  • Hi Jean:


    Unfortunately, my last experience with two publishers was a nightmare.  Both made grand promises, but didn’t produce (sigh).  If my book was to be promoted, I had to do it.  If I wanted reviews, I had to obtain them, etc.  So this time I self-published and used Draft2Digital as the distributor.  It’s a lot of work, but at least I’m in control.


    If you’re a member of LinkedIn, there’s a discussion right now on “Book Writer” regarding publishers.  You might find some useful information there.


    Wishing you much success (smile).
