Acquisitions Team


Just as there is no typical WordCrafts Press author,

our editorial staff and acquistions team have all come from their own varied backgrounds and walked circuitous paths before embracing

the curious world of independent publishing.

But we all have a few things in common, such as a desire to discover

and nurture emerging writers while providing a home

for more established authors and playwrights.

We Tell Stories.

Pressing Forward
by April Poynter

“I couldn’t put the book down!”

Reading this book will change your life. I purchased 15 copies so I could give one to everyone I know who has adopted a child, has a special needs child, or might consider it. Dan and his family know a deep unconditional love that is truly unconditional.
