About Us

“After years of wading through the traditional and self-publishing jungle, I knew there had to be a better way to reach a reading audience.” – Tina Truax, Presidentpurple2

Girl on the Write Publishing was founded in 2016 by nonfiction author and marketing executive, Tina Truax. Believing that every writer has a unique voice and style that deserves the opportunity to be heard, she embarked on her new adventure as a publishing partner.

Eliminating the literary agent middle man, we work directly with our authors from initial concept and beyond. We not only build quality manuscripts, we build relationships founded on creative respect, professionalism, and knowledge. You will end up with a published work, which makes the process exciting and rewarding. Whether you choose to publish a paperback novel, eBook, or both, we have the tools to get your story in the hands of readers.

Girl on the Write Publishing is a full-service, author-centered venture, led by a team of talented and accomplished creative professionals. From book cover design to editing and proofreading, you will have the support you need at every step in the creative process.
