Having goals is all well and good, but what matters is how well you work on reaching them. For us, that means cooperating and collaborating with our authors and the other professionals we work with, while keeping these goals in focus.
The writers we work with understand from the start that writing and publishing a book is only the beginning; that the success of the book depends on a commitment of time, money, and effort to the marketing of the book, and that the author is the person who must lead the way in marketing. The Silloway Press provides tools, materials, information, assistance, guidance, project management, and a cheering section; our authors provide the passion, energy, time, and investment.
When selecting other professionals such as editors, designers, and printers to work with, we look for people who do more than just provide what we ask for. We seek those who care enough about their work to find out as much as possible about each project and then to suggest improvements or alternatives we might not have seen.
We also have some strong feelings about what we will not do. The Silloway Press will not publish any books that promote or espouse hatred, bigotry, violence, brutality, crudity (by our definition), pornography, child, spousal, or animal abuse, and the other kinds of topics that keep "Law & Order" scriptwriters in business.
The Silloway Press donates a portion of profits to Heifer International, to organizations that benefit cats, kittens, and other companion animals, as well as to selected literacy and environmental organizations. We encourage our associates and clients to do the same.
And the fun? That comes from loving the world of books and the extraordinary people who write them. It comes from learning something new every day, and from sharing what we learn. And it comes from laughing…a lot. If it's not fun, it's not worth doing!
