In terms of Self-publishing, we authors sometimes have a hard time understanding what’s going on into it. We tend to just let the publishers decide what they want without our full knowledge.
As a company created by an author for authors, we have seen the dilemma of most authors. It starts by publishing a book up to marketing, costing them thousands of their hard- earned money.
Backpacking with Jesus: "Its not Always about the Hike, But more about the Journey" The Journey Continues
Backpacking with Jesus is the real-life story of one man’s thru-hike on the over 2,000 miles Appalachian Trail. Beginning at Springer Mountain in Georgia, the pathway weaves and winds through 14 states to the majestic top of Mount Katahdin in Maine.
The author provides a vivid account of the daily challenges faced in living outdoors for nearly five months. It is a journey of self-discovery and of sharing a very real and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Much of the story is from the actual journal written during the hike on the AT and the reader will experience a true sense of the rigors encountered during an end-to-end thru-hike.

Trashing the Bible: Can America Survive without the Foundation of God's Word?
American values are changing at an alarming rate, affecting everything from education, business, medicine, politics and, perhaps most importantly, the way we raise our children. Many are left wondering about the direction in which we are headed. Are we willing to return to the truth that once guided so many Americans and informed the way we lived?
Thousands of years ago, the psalmist asked, “How long, O Lord?” We can ask that same question in the midst of our changing moral landscape. How long will God put up with a nation that rejects His word? How long will it be until He removes His hand of blessing from our great country?
Leo Rising is tale of epic proportions that ties together two lives separated by 13,000 years of change, yet mysteriously bound by destiny and birthright. Kala, high priestess to Inanna the goddess of love and fertility, is a daughter of the Anakim, and descended from the Anunnaki, the gods themselves. As the grand cycle passes from the age of Virgo to the Age of Leo, what has been foretold and feared has now come to be. Kala must defend the ancient mother religion and her homeland at all costs, and prevent the bringers of a new violent religion from usurping her people’s culture and freedom. The new religion of the ﬁre-mountain god would bring war and destruction, along with slavery and misogyny in its wake. Thousands of years later, Cassie Bartoli an astronomer at Goldstone Observatory, uncovers a secret that if allowed to go public, would upset the balance of power, bringing about the end of the present religious and political system. Simultaneously, in southern Iraq, archaeologist Steve Vance unearths an ancient marvel as well as the fabled city of Ellu-Ezinu. He can now prove the Nephelim, the Sons of God written of in Genesis, were not merely a fabled race of giants. Steve also unearths powerful artifacts, but only Cassie is the key to their usage. Together, Cassie and Steve must reveal the unlikely truth to the world before their separate discoveries are forever suppressed from the planet by those who fear the loss of their power.
Seven Letters Detailing the Prophetic Framework of the Return of Christ
First and foremost, this book is an experience and inspirational writing which the author shares revealing a Faith and a Hope for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It reflects an intensive study in biblical prophecy and a layman’s look at the worlds current state. It is comprised of Seven Letters, which details the phenomenon of Israel’s restoration after almost 2,000 years of nonexistence.
The question for the Church is why it is back and what the wisdom of it from a biblical perspective is. We as Christians, too easily cast this Israel aside failing to take in the new wine that God is pouring out of His Spirit. As a result, the book concentrates itself on the error of this oversight in these modern times. An error that will bring the victorious Lord to be the redemptive Messiah at last for Israel . . . His chosen nation. After the Church is taken up in the rapture for those who do believe. Remember there is a church that Jesus says, “I never knew you” and is left behind to prove their faith and allegiance to Him and Him only. It is all in the scriptures and the book is dedicated to bringing these ancient words from the past to show the power of God in declaring the future to his glory!

Is That Your Aunt in the Attic?: Another Edna and Edith Adventure
From the author of “Is That Your Mother-In-Law under the Bed?” and “Is That Your Cousin in the Closet?” and “Is That Your Neighbor in the Basement?” comes the fourth book in the series featuring Edna and Edith as mischievous senior citizen sleuths. This book was coauthored by Barbara Oliver Fletcher and her daughter Cheryl Nicoll Gauthier.
Luis Gdulinski, an escaped convicted killer wants Edna and Edith dead! The sisters have already witnessed what Gdulinki’s hit men are capable of, so they’ve decided to get the hell out of Dodge and head for San Francisco to visit Edith’s daughter, Elaine. During their stay, they stumble on some suspicious activity a few doors down from Elaine’s house. This prompts the sisters to leap into action and, in some cases, leap behind boxes or bushes as they try to uncover the nocturnal activity.
After returning home, Edna and Edith are immediately hired to investigate Trent Holcomb’s soon-to-be fiancée, Lydia Sizemore. Undercover work on the high seas takes an unexpected turn as the sisters use their dubious detective skills to learn more about the shifty men in the cabin next door as well as Lydia and the secret she’s concealing.
As they navigate through their adventures, the sisters continue to fi nd themselves in precarious and hilarious situations while struggling to avoid Gdulinski’s assassins, who are trying to collect the massive bounty on their heads.
The Nickson View II: The Answer to the Horowitz-10
The topic of Reparations will be discussed as a subtext or main topic in America for as long as the Republic lasts. My book is not the fi rst on this subject nor will it be the last. But I can assure you that not many will match its comprehensiveness.
It discusses a continuum from ancient Hebrew Law, Roman Law, the 911 terrorist attack, the Mid-East Conflict, a new chapter on the J6 Sedition, and how those events reflect on the Reparations Debate. For example, the American Fugitive Slave Laws were illegal as against Hebrew Law, Roman Law and International Law. A slave was worth double the hired servant. The Egyptians paid Reparations to the Hebrews after they were set free. The Pope apologized for slavery nearly 40 years ago. The Bible indicates the Reparations Clock has not run out.
I believe my book, The Nickson View II, the Original Blue Book on Reparations, will be the Platinum Standard in this debate.
Overpowered: A Story of Faith and Mental Illness
Anything but dull, OVERPOWERED describes the lives of two authentic Christians who fi nd themselves in the middle of tragic situations that only God can get them out of. Eventually, God brings each one to the same city on the same day, and their paths intersect. They fall in love and get married. Daunting challenges continue in this true story of God’s providential care which is beyond the author’s wildest imagination.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”-Psalm 32:8, NIV Bible.
“Thank you for your sharing from your heart. Thank you for your transparency and not ‘sugarcoating’ the very difficult, painful, distressing, terrible situations you have experienced. Your testimony of God’s healing and empowering is inspirational.”
A reader of WHAT PRICE PRIESTHOOD book written by the author comments:
“I want to thank you for giving me an outline of Father Beckman’s life. I knew him. He was my swimming coach. He certainly impacted my life. It was an unexpected gift when I found this book and now know about the rest of his life.”

Oedipus from Miami Beach Book 2
My journal dogs me. But I feel a responsibility to keep Making entries so I can one day demonstrate in detail how significant attitudinal and behavioral change come.
Gradually in my psychoanalysis I was able to experience the complexity of my emotional logic – a combination of conventional causality, messy feelings, intuitions, role of luck, chance, serendipity, and synchronicity.
The psychoanalytic process: The analyst and the patient strive to identify the ‘just right key’ to open the specific lock of each new session.
Oedipus from Miami Beach Book 1
The main theme of my journal is a search for my ‘spiritual’ Father as a bridge to connecting me with my true self while negotiating the many formidable obstacles put in its way.
This journal was begun as a desperate attempt to create order out of the chaos of my confused thoughts and feelings.
My lifelong preoccupation has been to understand the nature of ‘spirituality’ of the man who cannot believe in the picture of the conventional ideas of God while at the same time lacks a clear sense of himself.

Answers to Questions You Never Knew to Ask
An Easter People: Inspirational Poems for Personal Reflection and Prayer
Poetry is an evolving art. Thirty to forty of the current poems are modifications of poems from his first poetry book: The Blood Of His Love (2003). This current compilation of poems, entitled: An Easter People is a labour of love. Like his hockey career, which he began in the seminary at the age of 21, he only began writing poetry seriously as a priest in his early 40’s.
This compilation of 185 poems covers a multitude of styles and approaches and is a culmination of nearly 20 years of writing. Currently, his focus is on faith base poetry for personal reflection and prayer. The author has been inspired by his prayer life, spiritual reading and the internet. Many of the ideas of his poems are influenced by the Bible and the writings and spiritual life of others.
Over the years, by God’s grace, he has come to the realization that poetry is more than rhyming. Poetry is speaking from the heart.
"Writers are a strange breed. Because they have a story to tell, their brains are pre-occupied with visions, words, emotions, and characters. Whether they travel the mental path of reality or fiction, their minds are consumed with the journey—and rightfully so. However, creativity comes with a price and can be expensive—time and money. Book Vine Press can hold these dreaded bandits at bay.
Let me tell you of my experience with this unique company. My name is Veronica Lawson. I have authored "A Dark Feather Novel" series of fictional books. Two of them, "SKINWALKER! Summer of Stolen Souls" and "SKINWALKER! Cradle of the Waterbabies" are the first two editions. I am currently working on the third, entitled "SKINWALKER! In the Shadow of Bones."
Honestly, the relief in being able to tell you that I am actually writing the third novel is indescribable. The relationships with past publishers were nightmares, not so with Book Vine Press. I wasted more time and money than I like to admit and was considering not writing any more. The previous companies were not only greedy, but confusing to work with.
My relationship with Book Vine Press has been a breath of fresh air. Jay Williams, Senior Consultant, has been incredible! He and his team have proven to know what they are doing. Here is the key—I worked solely through Jay. I have not had to communicate with hordes of representatives, and end up more confused afterward. Jay not only knows his business, but he is kind, thoughtful, humorous, and eager to help. Patience is probably his best attribute, which, admittedly, is sorely needed with this writer. His team is excellent, as proven by the products they produced for me. Never, ever has there been a hard sell tactic either directly or indirectly. When Jay and I communicate, it is an honest consultant to writer conversation.
I strongly recommend that if you are a published author or if you have your first draft manuscript and are searching for a quality publishing company, call Book Vine Press. And get back to what you should be doing—writing."Veronica Lawson
"I am writing regarding the high quality and professional attention I received from Mr. Jay Williams’ in republishing my book, Maasai Man.
The attention to details I requested were handled with the utmost care and timeliness by Mr. Williams. This is the reason for this testimonial that I am proud to submit to Book Vine Press. A friendship has been born!"Vastine East
"I want to take this opportunity to thank Mark Hudson for the tremendous job he did in revitalizing my writing efforts. He offered his services to repackage and republish a young reader’s novel of mine while inspiring me to continue my creative writing journey. I can’t thank him enough for his friendly and timely emails and his keen knowledge of the publishing process. With Mark at the helm, this ship sailed smoothly, and without a hitch.
Mark is also surrounded by a team of savvy designers and editors. To them, I am truly grateful. I am very pleased with the book print, binding, and cover design of all three of my books.
I would recommend Mark Hudson to anyone desiring to see their book in print. It’s great to have friend in the publishing business."Roy A. Hinderer
"I have been dealing with BOOK VINE PRESS since August 2021, and they have been very nice and helpful, specially AMANDA WILSON always kept me up to date with all the progress of my husband book THE GAME OF LOVE/LIFE. I'm very appreciative."Ronald Rocha
"I just would like to say I'm proud to be able to work with Jay William's and the people at Bookvinepress. It's a real great experience. They take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have, they help you with your projects. They listen to your feedback they even give you their advice on how to make your project a success. They are fun good people to work with and I glad I had the chance and oppurtunity to work with them. And for that I am truly grateful and I look forward to working with them in the future. And I would like to thank Mr. Williams Bookvinepress for everything they have done for me."Tramain Fitzgerald
"I’ve worked with Matt for more than a year now. Our first republication project was a success; he made an excellent job on both cover and interior design. He’s always there to answer my calls and assist me in every stage. The best thing that happened was my book sales, after they lowered the price to $5.99; I made more than 500 copies in 4 months’ time. Truly price and quality go hand in hand." "I am now working on my second book with Matt, and I will entrust it and any future book projects to him. Keep up the good work Matt !!"Fred Green
"I had the privilege of working with Matt Franco on my first book Brim's Justice. He worked very closely with me to get the cover, layout and back cover just right and on time. He is great to work with and makes sure details and deadlines are met with expert
professionalism.Thank you Matt."
"Mark--Just want you to know that I've self published three different books over the last ten years. I came close twice to have a publisher take over my books. But close is no good unless you're playing horse shoes! I was sick of the publishing road and decided to retire! When I took my last chance to have a publisher work with me you were the one I talked with. You answered all my questions--you explained everything to me that I wasn't familiar with. I feel that the months ahead are going to be good ones for sure--I'm excited. Without you this wouldn't have happened! You kept in touch with me just about every day--answered every question--and as I said--I'm very happy. I look forward to working with you and the entire organization--because of you! Can't wait to get moving!--Thank you !--Jack Orth--I believe my book--"The Memory Bank" will be a huge success now--so glad I 'm working with you!--Jack"Jack Orth
