August, 2013 – Present (about 5 years)

Annette Vendryes Leach is an author, publisher, and entrepreneur who started MindPress Media LLC to publish her work. Through that in-depth process, she learned first hand the kind of publishing services an author needs and does not need. From creating a professional cover and interior design to building your author platform, MindPress Media looks out for the author's best interests and will advise and guide them towards a successful book launch.

Unlike many self-publishing services companies, MindPress Media does not take a percentage of the author's book sales or royalties. We set up a publishing platform in the author's name, they own their ISBN, and all royalties and reports are sent directly to the author. Authors can order their books at wholesale prices and keep track of sales through their publishing dashboard (KDP or IngramSpark). Once their book is published, we coach the author so they are in complete control of their title online and can confidently update content as their author career grows.

Annette is a graduate of The New School where she majored in Creative Writing and Comparative Religion. Annette worked as an advertising copywriter for many years before founding a literary book club. She is the author of Song of the Shaman and is President of MindPress Media LLC based in Brooklyn, NY.

God's Pen: My Story from Guilt to Grace to Peace

Jennifer Hoerl

As I did this, and as I was rereading my words, I realized universal truths were in my writings. These truths kept building on each other, so I think God had been guiding me all along. I really feel like He gave me the title to this book. H... read more
