The idea of helping debut authors achieve their dream, multi-published authors resurrecting their out-of-print books or branching into a new genre, and offering a higher royalty rate than larger traditional publishers, was birthed shortly after.
Miralee Ferrell, the publisher of Mountain Brook Ink, has over twelve years of experience in the publishing world as a multi-published, traditional author, winning awards and writing two ECPA Best Sellers. Two of her books are/have been made into TV movies as well. She’s an accredited Christian lay counselor with the AACC, a speaker, conference teacher, author, publisher, wife, mother, and servant of Christ.
Mountain Brook Ink has two publishing arms. The first encompasses inspirational fiction (excluding children’s fiction). The second is devoted to secular fiction without a faith thread but is nevertheless clean, not containing any sexual content or offensive language (determined by the publisher).
We are growing at a steady pace, while asking the Lord to bring the right manuscripts. There is NO charge for an author to publish with us. We only ask that–should we ask for a full manuscript in the review process–that you send a reasonably clean manuscript that’s had other eyes on it along the way–whether that’s a strong critique group, exchanging work with another author, or if you’ve chosen to get an actual edit. Like any publisher, we want to see work this isn’t your first or second draft, since the quality will determine whether or not we offer a contract. We provide the line/copy edit, proofreading, cover, formatting, uploading, printing, and help with promotions and publicity, as well as sending your book to reviewers and helping you build a Street Team. If you believe you’re one of the authors we’re looking for, please visit our Submissions Page. We’d love to hear from you!
