STRONGPrint PUBLISHING is a best-in-class book publishing imprint formed after Amber Vilhauer and her colleagues watched long-standing traditional and hybrid publishing companies dissolve quickly, leaving their authors with no publishing next steps and a financial loss. We knew there had to be a better way.

What we all have in common: Unwavering excellence in service, we take NO royalties, require NO print minimums, and agree YOU should own full rights to your content.
