Who We Are
A small, author friendly publisher, veteran-founded in 2003 and incorporate as a Limited Liability Corporation in 2012, MSI Press focuses on bringing the public unique books of recognized high quality, especially new authors with considerable talent. We take pride in our authors and the awards they continually win for the quality of their writing and the unique content of their books. We also take pride in our book publication specialists, whose graphics and design are of equally high quality.
We publish books in the following areas:
- Animals, including pet memoirs
- Foreign language & culture
- Health & fitness
- Inspirational & religious
- Parenting & teaching
San Juan Books is the hybrid publishing department of MSI Press. It is the option of choice for new authors without well-established platforms. Hybrid publishing allows MSI Press, via San Juan Books, to take risks on authors whom other publishers might not be willing to support. It also allows us to publish books in genres that are not our specialty or that would have a limited readership. For more information about San Juan Books, click here.
MSI Press is listed as #5 of the 19!
Where Can Our Books Be Found?
Our books are distributed internationally. Readers can find them in our webstore, online bookstores in many countries, and local bookstores, like the Gilroy, California Barnes & Noble store shown here. Select bookstores in Europe and the Middle East also sell our books. Our books can also be ordered through Ingram (wholesaler/distributor) and Bowker.
Readers can also find our books in many university libraries, as well as local libraries, like the Monterey, California, Public Library shown here. Libraries that shelve our books are located in every state, and any library that does not shelve our books can easily order them for patrons, given that all of our books have Library of Congress numbers that help with shelving and with MARC records. Many of our authors give readings and lectures at public and private libraries, and MSI Press generously donates books to libraries for their fundraising events.
The Library of Congress also contains most of our books in its main or subsidiary holdings, where readers can take a look at them, use them for research, and become acquainted with the talents of our authors. The MARC records for our books can be found in the LOC card catalogue online and at the Main Reading Room, shown here, considerably in advance of their release.
Those who wish to do so can order our books direct from us through our webstore on this site. We accept purchase orders by email, mail, and fax from libraries, bookstores with pre-approval, and some professional organizations anywhere in the world. Please query if you wish to order by purchase order or to establish an account with us. In addition, we offer consignment options. For all retailers, we offer right of return on undamaged books with no time limits. We also offer highly discounted bulk sales (available via our website or contact email@example.com) with free freight (sorry, no right of return on bulk sales).
Who Are Our Staff and Associates?
As we have grown, we have found the need to bring in additional help, and we are proud of the work that our associates do for our authors. Our associates accomplish a number of very important tasks, including editing, copyediting, proofreading, reviewing (determining if a book is worthy of publication), technical advice & assistance, graphics, typesetting, cover design, e-book conversion, and audiobook conversion. We include here those who have an expressed a willingness to share their information with the public. Our associates also help other publishers and authors. Feel free to contact them if you have publishing projects for them.
