About Us

Who We Are

We are a service-based publishing house committed to powerful storytelling; inspiring backstories; yet-to-be-discovered voices; and impeccable service.

What We Believe

We believe that every story matters.

We believe that the smallest moments of connection create the widest reaching ripple effect of change.

We believe that book publishing doesn’t have to be overwhelming, feel high-pressure, or take years to complete.

We believe that authors deserve to earn a fair profit — it’s your story, after all!

We believe that 100% of the rights to your story are your own (and should remain that way).

We believe that while most stories aren’t, in and of themselves, completely unique, no one else has your exact perspective or experience, and that is your superpower.

We believe in partnerships. This isn’t our first rodeo (although, in full transparency, we’ve never been to an actual rodeo), and it is our privilege to guide our authors every step of the way. We are proud of our no-tears-or-panic-attacks policy.

We believe in the bells and whistles that help our clients increase their impact—and leave the ones that don’t in the metaphorical slush pile.

We don’t have an actual slush pile.

Our goal is simple: help you tell your story in a powerfully vulnerable way, publish it so that it can sit next to any New York Times bestseller in terms of quality, and support you as you continue to reach the readers who are desperate to hear what you (and you alone) have to say.

Are you with us so far? If so, let’s talk about what’s next…

What Our Authors Are Saying

Elizabeth’s ability to cut to the chase and efficiently get her clients where they want and need to go is remarkable. I’m grateful to have been able to partner with her for The 7 Minute Setup

The 7 Minute Setup: How to Achieve Your Business and Personal Goals Faster and Easier
I thought I could get my book done on my own, but it just wasn’t happening. Elizabeth and her coaching finally helped me get it out of my head and onto something I can share with the world. If you feel stuck like I did, this program is exactly what you need to get your book written, published, and launched.

Made Over: How to Create a Powerful Brand that Will Transform Your Business and Save Your Life
Elizabeth Lyons is everything you want in a publisher (and editor): Incredibly intelligent, business savvy, enthusiastic, and honest. You definitely want her in your corner as coach, mentor, and occasional (admittedly unlicensed) therapist.

Folksong: A Ballad of Death, Discover, and DNA
Elizabeth is the most knowledgeable, supportive, and hard-working resource in the indie publishing space. I highly recommend her.

The Size of Everything (co-author)

Never in my career have I had a partner set an unrealistic goal and not only hit it but exceed it! There are no words for working with Elizabeth. That is how incredible it was.

Elizabeth has a special way of listening and a magic way with words. She has a gift and a true talent as it relates to true partnership with an author. Working with her and Finn-Phyllis Press was a beautiful collaboration, and my book wouldn’t be where it is without them.
