Created to serve
The ARgyle Fox Story
Daniel Brantley, Author & Founder of Argyle Fox Publishing
As an author, I founded Argyle Fox Publishing to serve authors just like you.
The idea for Argyle Fox formed during a speaking engagement at my local library in Cleveland, Tennessee. After another author and I discussed the writing process from idea to publication, the floor opened for questions.
When an audience member asked about the cost to publish, I paused. Thanks to my writing and editing background and my connections in the publishing world, my financial costs were minimal.
So I deferred to the other author.
“Well,” she said, “it was actually pretty expensive.”
She went on to explain that it cost her three thousand dollars to publish her eighteen-page picture book.
Three thousand dollars? I don’t have that kind of money laying around, and I suspect few authors do.
Making the situation worse was that she’d hardly sold any books, despite the fact that her publishing package included marketing.
I felt sick to my stomach. This sweet lady had written a great children’s book and had nothing to show for it but a box of books and three thousand dollars of debt.
As I reflected on that author’s experience, I realized there were others in similar situations. And while I can’t help them all, I can help a few. So I created Argyle Fox Publishing to do just that.
Working with a team of amazing artists, illustrators, and editors, every book Argyle Fox publishes is handled with love and passion, and we treat every author as we want to be treated.
I realize Argyle Fox is not the publishing company for everyone. But if our story resonates with you and you’re ready to get your book off your computer and onto bookshelves, we’d love to make your publishing dreams come true.
