We turn writers into published authors.

Navigating the world of publishing can be difficult. Exhausting. Overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.

It can be enjoyable. Exciting. Fun!

At Argyle Fox Publishing, we go out of our way to answer our authors’ questions and make the publishing process simple and enjoyable.

Though we’re a small company, we use the same software, printers, and distributors as the big guys who charge $3,000 or more. Founded by Cleveland, Tennessee, author Daniel (D.K.) Brantley, we know what authors want, so we do things a bit differently.

We don’t work with templates.

We don’t have hidden fees.

We don’t make promises we can’t keep.

Instead, we follow the Golden Rule and treat our authors like we want to be treated.

“Having had no prior experience in the world of book publishing, Argyle Fox Publishing’s patient kindness and professional excellence made getting my husband’s book into print a truly enjoyable experience. I have already received some sweet testimonies of Pete’s book accomplishing its purpose!”

A Few Places Where You’ll Find Our Books


Sarah Ann May was stuck. She’d written a book but wasn’t sure what to do next. Then a missionary friend introduced her to Argyle Fox Publishing.

Nervous and excited, Sarah submitted her manuscript to Argyle Fox in mid-July. Before Thanksgiving, her book was published.

At the core of her book is the message that Jesus is our Hope. Sarah knew its message needed to be heard, so she told people about the book. Then she asked friends to do the same.

As a result, There Is Always Hope sold so well it was named Amazon’s #1 New Release in Christian Counseling. Days after her book’s release, Sarah had sold so many copies of her book that she made back more than she spent with Argyle Fox.

Shortly after, an author friend asked Sarah about her experience. That friend soon became an Argyle Fox Publishing author, who found the same success as Sarah!


We understand. Trusting someone to care for your book is a big deal and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Email us to schedule a time to talk on the phone to determine if we’re a good fit for you.


When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Pastor Larry Briggs went to work. Writing two books in a matter of months, he turned to Argyle Fox Publishing to edit, design, and publish both.

After approving our edits to The Secret Place, Pastor Briggs was impressed. So impressed that he didn’t want to see the edits to Pulling Down Strongholds. He trusted our editorial team that much.

Since publishing, Pastor Briggs has given and sold his two books to many who have been touched by his 40-plus years of ministry. He doesn’t market his books, but offers them when he suspects they will help a fellow believer.

How many more books does Pastor Briggs have up his sleeve? However many God lays on his heart.
