More Than "Just" a Publishing Company


I want Balancing Tree Press to be different from other publishing companies. I want to tear down that barrier between writing and publishing. I want to be an aide in the entire creative process, not just jumping in at the end.

Part of that difference is that I want you to get to know me. I don't want to be a faceless business, I want to be a personality that you can connect with.

I'm still figuring out exactly what that looks like. How much do I need to remain a solid business woman and how much do I show you the moments I fall apart? We all do, that is part of being human.

We all have days when we doubt. We doubt ourselves and our dream. We doubt that we are strong enough, smart enough, or sometimes enough at all.

I've had several of those days over the past few months. Honestly, it tends to block me from putting out content. I got to thinking, if I want to be a personality to connect with, perhaps this is the content I need to release.

Setting up a business is hard. There are a lot of moving parts and a lot of "putting yourself out there." It is scary to be vulnerable and hard to move forward without knowing exactly what to do next.

Small business in unique because you can do whatever you want! (Within reason of course.) If you have a dream you can make it happen. I'm not going to claim to be a great business woman...yet. I will be, I am learning as I go.

I'm not going to claim to be a great writer either. I write because there is something inside of me that must come out. I write because it is my passion to express myself to the world through art and written word. I write because I can't not write.

Writing is how I understand the world around me.

This is the passion I want to share through Balancing Tree Press. It is through my company that I will publish my own books. As I did the research to self-publish, I thought, "why not share that knowledge and spirit with others."

I hear people say, "I'd love to write a book, but I have no where to start." I want to help you get started and be a guide through the entire process. Or I want to learn about your story and share your passion as a documentary, memoir or compilation piece through ghostwriting.

I believe there is a story in all of us. Some people tell it through words, others through art. Expression is how we find our place in the world. I want to help you express your story in a form that you can share. To accomplish something you can be proud of.

I don't want Balancing Tree Press to be "just another publishing company." I am so much more. I want to provide a journey, an experience.

I want to share my doubts and anxieties because we all have them, to some degree. I want to connect with others and build a community of people who are passionate about something and can build each other up so we are all stronger.

Building a business takes some baby steps. It doesn't all get set up at once. I'm on my way and I'm working hard to make it happen. I invite you to join in my journey and embrace your creative life.

Peace and Love,
