Welcome to Muddy Paws Press!

This press was created as a source of inspiration and a wealth of information about the books we have published and self-publishing in general.

First, we'd like to ask you, how many books have you written that you were never able to get published that are just collecting dust in a box under your bed?

If you have written any, now is the time to dust them off and take another look at them to decide if they are worth publishing, either as ebooks or traditional print books.

Why now? The publishing world is changing rapidly, and not everything that is good and worth reading now comes through a traditional publishing house like Penguin or McGraw-Hill (although at least one of our authors has published nonfiction books through both houses previously).

Why Muddy Paws Press? We've been in your shoes and walked at least a mile in them! Our primary author to start (Dr. Sheri Colberg) has written and published eight nonfiction books--yes, that is 1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8 books--all between 2001 and 2011 through traditional publishing houses (and is still represented by a literary agent for her nonfiction), but after several years of trying and many, many rejections later, she was still unable to find a literary agent or a publisher for her middle grade and adult fiction.

The moral of the story is never give up and never say "never"! If you are ready and able to work hard at it and determined to see yourself in print (so to speak), you can and you will succeed. Muddy Paws Press will help guide you in reaching your dreams of becoming a published author.

What's new at Muddy Paws Press?

We are pleased to announce the publication of two middle-grade fiction books, Sandy Beach and the Mysterious Book and Sandy Beach and the Slippery Slope in paperback and various eBook formats, as well as our first nonfiction book, Diabetes-Free Kids. You can find links to Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook, and other versions that you can buy or download today.

We are in the process of publishing the Sandy Beach series of middle grade fiction as ebooks and affordable paperbacks (POD, or "print-on-demand"). We will never make false promises about how many copies your book will sell or how easy it will be to publicize what you write (we already know that it won't be easy). We will not try to sell you programs to publish your book(s) that will leave you in the hole with nothing but a smaller bank account to show for your efforts. Muddy Paws press cares about it authors and its books, not about taking advantage of your desire to become published!

You've already taken the first step toward getting published by visiting our site. Check out all we offer at Muddy Paws Press to find the information and the path that works for you to start publishing your works of fiction or nonfiction today.

As we always remind ourselves at Muddy Paws Press, you only live once. Why not look into getting published and leave your own unique mark on the world?
