Who Are We?
Our founders, Erica Orloff and Jon VanZile, have worked in publishing for decades, both in traditional publishing and self-publishing.
We are regular speakers and panelists at events like the James River Writers Conference, local chapters of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Joan Oates Institute, and countless schools and workshops. And of course we’re writers too: our principals have authored or ghostwritten dozens of books, for publishers including Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and independent publishers.
