Welcome to Madison Street Publishing where “the story is our bottom line.” In the turbulent modern publishing industry, we are committed to building a different business model—one that centers on the author and the reader, not the publisher. Instead of relying on celebrity status or expensive, over-the-top mass marketing, we rely on the simple truth that a great story will build its own success from the ground up. Our publishing company exists to assist authors in getting that great story into the hands of readers.
MSP grew organically out of the collaboration of author Rosanne E. Lortz and David Spears when they married in 2010. Rosanne crafted stories and David found readers for the stories. It was this joint effort that led to the idea that other authors might want a best friend and business partner to help them navigate the adventures of publishing. Marketing, e-book formats, cover designs, plot holes, editing—all this can be better conquered with collaboration. MSP is designed to take part of the multifaceted workload that faces an aspiring author and share that burden. Let our expertise and work ethic be put to your use. Publishing is an adventure best shared with friends.
