The VIP program was initiated to help authors learn the business of publishing and to give back to others. VIP authors are hands on, and "all in" exclusive. They are the face of Stitched Smile Publications, the mentors, decision makers, key holders, and future of this company. If you want to measure the success of a company, look at it's most valuable players.
Lisa started Stitched Smile Publications, LLC. on an idea. Writing should be about love of the word, and passion for the story. The rest is just business. Treating people with fairness was a value planted within her as a young child and never left. Taking the old saying, "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life," she began laying the groundwork for the company you see now.
We teach, we mentor, and we get our hands dirty. If you have the drive to work, and the patience for learning, we have the time to give any author who comes into SSP - no matter what level they start at - a shot at their dream.
Here, at Stitched Smile Publications, education and giving back to our communities is important to us. We have interns from various colleges on staff to give them hands-on, real life experience in the publishing industry. Our interns learn every aspect of the company, from editing, to formatting, and they even get in on the social media action! We have even opened up to Design and Illustration interns! Giving students a chance to see what it is like behind the wheel is not only exciting and rewarding for us, it allows them to take that experience wherever they go in their chosen fields.
