Publisher's Row was a success and plans are already underway to make it even better this year. We want to thank all the publishers who participated. Rumor has it that several authors walked away from OCW with either a contract or an invitation to submit a manuscript. The publishers who participate in publisher's row are all independent and transactions between publishers and participants are not endorsed or recommended by OCW Board. The OCW Board takes no responsibility for these transactions or arrangements.
OGHMA CREATIVE MEDIA
Oghma Creative Media is a Renaissance Press with a wide variety of imprints. It also publishes Saddlebags Dispatch, a quarterly magazine. The mission statement of Oghma Creative Media is to develop and promote quality artists who are overlooked by the traditional business models of their respective industries and who are currently lost among the unfiltered mass media distribution channels.
4RV Publishing works one on one with accepted authors to create quality work. The staff (including published authors and experienced editors, illustrators, and designers) works together to produce professional fiction and nonfiction books for all ages. Submissions are expected to be well-written and professionally edited, with few, if any, grammatical or spelling errors. We want manuscripts that catch the attention of readers (editors) and keeps them reading to the end.
Five Star Publishing
Five Star Publishing, part of Cengage Learning, debuted in 1995 with four original Western titles published in hardcover format. These first edition Westerns have earned rave reviews in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Booklist, with hundreds of titles reviewed to date. Western Writers of America has honored multiple Five Star Western titles with Spur Awards for their superior quality.
The Wild Rose Press
The Wild Rose Press is a publishing house for authors, founded by authors with customer satisfaction being their number one priority. Founded in 2006 by RJ Morris and Rhonda Penders, these women were disheartened by the way publishers treated authors. With over 500 authors and 3500 titles later, the model has proven to work. While other small presses have come and gone, The Wild Rose Press has never wavered.
