We have worked with New York Times best-selling authors and helped authors sell over 300,000 books. Our books have been featured on Fox News, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Why not use our expertise to guide you through the publishing maze? Izzard Ink can help out with as much or as little of the publishing process as you need. We offer personalized service tailored to your needs so you get exactly what you want. If you want help just editing or designing your book, Izzard Ink can do that. What about marketing or illustrations? We can assist with that as well. What if you have a book but just need help printing or creating an eBook? We can help you through any or all the publishing process. Through our research we have found that authors are more successful when they own 100% of their books and copyright. We provide you, the author, the contacts and tools you need to create that book or series you’ve dreamed of. We specialize in connecting authors with top publishing talent that have years of professional experience with the leading publishers in the industry.

We don’t just help authors; we have also been a resource for other publishing companies as a one-stop shop for their industry and business consulting needs.
As a multifaceted publishing visionary, Tim McConnehey specializes in the publishing of e-books through his company, Izzard Ink Publishing. And when he says multifaceted, he means it! Tim directs eight teams covering every facet of publishing, including finance, distribution, marketing, website development, art, public relations, cover and interior design, audiobook production, editing, and copyright.
Through his background in corporate training, business management, and business development, McConnehey acquired extensive experience in client service. And as someone who is never satisfied with the status quo, he came up with the idea of creating Izzard Ink Publishing after reading an article about e-books in the Wall Street Journal.
Izzard Ink Publishing has now grown from that initial idea into a business that has sold over 300,000 books, with a client list that has sold over 45 million books combined—all accomplished by delivering exceptional personalized client service and working with the best people in publishing. Through McConnehey’s promotion and marketing of their books, Izzard Ink’s authors have been featured on Fox News, C-Span’s Book TV, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other publications throughout the country.
McConnehey has a B.A. in International Business from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, and lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife Wendy and their two children. In his (rare) free time, he loves to restore old cars and motorcycles. To learn more about Tim McConnehey and Izzard Ink Publishing, visit:
Praise for Tim McConnehey and Izzard Ink:
“I have worked with the world’s leading multinational companies for my books, as well as managing my many speaking engagements. Izzard Ink’s consultation services were some of the best. I am especially grateful for the guidance with my website and social media marketing campaigns. Izzard Ink’s focus is on building authors and people. I would recommend Izzard Ink for any published or non-published author, regardless of the phase they are in the process.”—Dan Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Significance, National Speaker Association Hall of Fame
“My husband, W. Cleon Skousen, wrote several books, including The Naked Communist and The Naked Capitalist. We were so happy when each of those became bestsellers. I was told that, at last count, those two books had sold more than two million copies combined. I’ve had Izzard Ink refresh five of Cleon’s books and all of them turned out crisp and new and attractive.”—Jewel P. Skousen, editor and spouse of USA Today and New York Times bestselling author W. Cleon Skousen
“I am a self-publishing author/publisher and have had the best experience, bar none, with the Izzard Ink group. They are the best bunch of hard-working professionals that I have ever had the privilege of working with; I would recommend them to anyone looking to design a cover, create a beautiful interior, and I would recommend them for all your creative publishing needs. Tim McConnehey has held my hand through the entire process and answered my questions at all hours of the day and night. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”—Diane Merrill Wigginton, author and owner of Jeweled Dagger Publishing
“I owe my new friends at Izzard Ink a tremendous debt of gratitude. They walked me through self-publishing 101 and helped me turn my non-sellers into great sellers. One title was a bestseller on Amazon. Until I met Izzard, I didn’t know how little I knew about post-writing development to produce a polished, professional-looking book. They cared about making me a success. And where some prior efforts produced a couple of duds, they guided me to help so I could repair the flaws and try again. It was worth it. Highly recommend Izzard Ink. Sometimes you just need somebody who knows the way.”—Paul Skousen, bestselling author and former White House CIA analyst
“Working with Tim was as effective as it was enjoyable. As a first-time author speaking on the phone with Tim for the first time, one of the first things he said to me was, ‘I just want to see your book be successful.’ That simple statement was the clear motivation of every interaction we had from that very first conversation all the way to me holding a finished copy of my book in my hands. It is immediately clear when speaking with Tim that his knowledge of this business is only surpassed by his willingness to help. I couldn’t be more satisfied and grateful for his help to make my book a reality. I would recommend Izzard Ink to anyone and everyone without any hesitation. Tim and the Izzard Ink team offer professional advice and hands-on help that truly does range from A to Z.”—Robbie Tripp, public speaker and author of Create Rebellion
