What We Do
Calling Card Books is a small hybrid publisher that helps authors create stories that inspire, enlighten and delight. We have an ever-growing list of exciting and informative titles. We are committed to helping authors create good books and get them to market. If your project is right for either one of our imprints, Calling Card Books for non-fiction and Z Girls Press for creative works, we will work closely with you to make sure your manuscript is the absolute best it can be for your target audience.
We will create a beautiful cover, design the book interior and ebook, announce your project via a press release and publish your print or ebook through Amazon for direct to consumer sales and IngramSpark, the small press division of Ingram Content Group, for worldwide distribution to booksellers and others who need good books. If your title is not right for CCB, but you like our style, use our A-La-Carte menu of services to see how we can help improve your manuscript so your perfect publisher will say “yes.”
Our authors get hands-on guidance every step of the way from book idea to editing to final publication. We help authors turn their passion, expertise or idea into an engaging book that doubles as an informative calling card about them. Through our professional associations, we can create the perfect marketing plan by taking advantage of the many programs and resources available to us to get your books into readers hands.
Hybrid publishers behave just like traditional publishing companies in all respects, except that we publish books using an author-subsidized business model, as opposed to financing all costs ourselves. In exchange, we return a higher-than-industry-standard share of sales proceeds to the author. In other words, a hybrid publisher makes income from a combination of publishing services and book sales. When your book sells is when we make a profit, it is truly a win/win business model.

The Road To Success
To take a road trip to Success, we will need a destination as well as a GPS. Success is described here as the achievement of a goal. The goals we adopt may be the result of experience, vision or desire. They crystallize our desire to get to a better place.
A Tangeled Web
The novel is a dystopia that examines a future world where animals and ornamental planting are against the law. It has been descibed as the prelude to George Orwell’s 1984.
