DeerVale Publishing(TM) was created by an author to help new authors get their books into the marketplace.
John R. Spencer did the "publishing dance" with traditional and subsidy houses for 18 years. When a major traditional publisher offered a book contract—then backed out because of “internal politics” at the publisher—John decided it was time to take charge of his publishing future.
Faced with subsidy presses charging thousands of dollars, he pursued true self-publishing, everything from finding editors, to book design and layout, copyrighting, production, and contracting for distribution.
The process was intensive and time consuming, and John discovered many authors aren’t comfortable taking on the enormous work required for self-publishing. So, he fashioned DeerVale to help authors get their book out, to see what readership they might develop.
