Our process relies on a lot of human interaction, judgment calls, and tough love. We know that no two authors and no two books are the same, so that's how we roll. We've been doing this since before Facebook, and before PayPal. Heck, back when our company first started, you could board an airplane without picture ID. Now that we've got over 900 books to our name, it stands to reason that we'd have this whole publishing thing down to a science. But you know what? We don't. Because this is not a science. It's an art. Specializing in children’s books, family heirloom editions, memoirs, business books, and literary publications, Beaver’s Pond provides a wealth of experience to authors from all walks of life. Beaver’s Pond is respected in the industry for exacting standards in all the publishing disciplines, including writing, editing, design, typesetting, printing, binding, distribution, marketing, and fulfillment.
