William Kingsfield Publishers
When Matty completed her first book, The Sense of Death, she decided that independent publishing was a far more appealing option than the traditional route, especially with the growing popularity of “indy” in other industries such as film. She chose William Kingsfield Publishers as her imprint in honor of her father, who wrote under that pen name--his stories appeared in Collier’s Weekly (“Tobe” and “The Captain’s Counterfeit”), Cosmopolitan Magazine ("The Rut"), and Esquire ("So Quietly Waiting").
Successful independent publishing means treating the business side of book creation with the same care as the creative side, including cover design, editing, and promotion. Matty recently ventured into audiobook production and speaks to writers’ groups about the independent publishing process.
