Our company was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 by a family of authors who believed that there had to be a better model than predatory vanity presses or do-it-yourself publishing for emerging authors.

Today, we've published hundreds of titles for emerging, award-winning, and bestselling authors. We believe in the power of meaningful books to make a lasting impact in the lives of readers.

We provide three different publishing models: Light Messages Traditional Publishing, Torchflame Hybrid Publishing, and Author Publishing. Our publishing standards, quality of the books, and their availability to retailers are the same, regardless of the path to publication. The main difference lies in roles, responsibilities, and the revenue model.
