About Calling Card Books
& Z Girls Press
Our Mission and Vision
The Mission of Calling Card Books is to produce books that Educate, Inspire and Inform. Our Vision is that our books help the general welfare of the reading public by working with authors whose message can transform lives. Our authors are experts who can teach, preach and inform or people whose life story is inspiring and will make a difference in the lives of others when shared.
We will read your existing pages, go over an outline or story idea, and do what it takes to help understand your goals. Just like a business, your book should have a Mission and a Vision. Our C.E.O. brings a Corporate background in Analysis and Strategic Planning to play in the book writing business. Together with you, we will define a target audience which dictates the style of writing.
We have over 20 years of writing experience in many genres: business writing, marketing and web content, journalism and even some fiction. We’ve collectively earned awards and recognition for much of the content over the years. We’ll do developmental editing of existing pages or co-write with you to help develop a book that is read to the very last page and educates, inspires or motivates your readers for generations to come.
We can make your book enchanting inside and out. From the front cover to the last page, your book will make an impact.
Our team has designed everything from complex, illustrated books to line-art heavy coloring books, We’re also no stranger to more traditional fiction and non-fiction book design, where we like to use chapter headings and graphic elements to make them stand out from the crowd.
Check out our book, All About Water – As Told by The Plumber Who’s Seen It All. That book required close collaboration between our graphic artist, Audrey, and our book designer, Kate, and they produced a beautiful book, with 53 illustrations. Our team loves a good challenge! We also worked with multimedia artist and author Daphne Stammer to convert her handmade book with over 30 watercolor illustrations of Clyde: The Cat That Came In From The Cold into a popular and beloved book for avid readers and cat lovers everywhere.
