Golden Box Books is a registered, small Publisher Company. However, after we published a few books, we decided not to join the cut-throat race of publishers and compete for publishing territories, therefore, we are not accepting manuscripts.
We became a small Publishing Service Provider with a small team. We offer publishing and promotion assistance to self-published authors so they can take full control of their books. Although our team members are present on social sites, they wish to remain anonymous in order to avoid soliciting messages.
Zita is our publishing assistant. She handles our Facebook page, email account, and she sets up and organizes our contests. She is the only staff member who communicates with our panel of volunteer contest judges.
Erika is our artist and publishing coach.. She does book formatting, illustrations, book cover design, and she helps the authors to self publish their books.
Denise is in charge of our magazines and website promotion and always searching for options in order to better serve our clients. Our monthly magazines for readers started out great, but the past few months the interest started to decline, most likely because we don't promote free books. We strongly believe that authors should be paid for their hard work. Denise is working on a different promo option for authors and started filling up our genre pages and submitting the pages to search engines.
We also started offering Award Contest to Indie authors and small publishers. After two successful, Golden Book Award and Golden Quill Awardcontests, we decided to continue in 2018 and we are accepting submissions. In order to make the contest as fair as possible, we have ten volunteer contest judges for every contest. The judges are mostly retired teachers, and presently, a nurse and a retired lawyer joined us. Although they're present on social sites, they with to remain anonymous to avoid soliciting messages asking for favors. Our mission is to offer reasonable prices to authors in both publishing services and promotion. Therefore, we spend very little money on paid advertisements of our services and focus on promoting the books that authors are submitting to our pages. We rely on word of mouth advertisements by authors who used our services in order to continue offering reasonable prices.
