WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

  • Professional Service: Candy Abbott, owner and head gardener of Fruitbearer Publishing LLC personally oversees each project and is backed by a highly professional team we call Vinedressers. The Fruitbearer experience is a cooperative venture between you (the author) and Fruitbearer (the publisher). We are an independent publisher, not a self-publisher or a traditional publisher but a combination (think of it as a hybrid) where you retain all of the control but have none of the headaches.
  • Personalized Attention: Consider us your “personal publisher.” Our Vinedressers (editors, artists, designers, and proofreaders) will guide you gently through the maze from raw manuscript to finished book. No worries about where to find what you need—it’s all in the fruit basket. Oh, and we pray for you, too!
  • Integrity: Rooted in Galatians 5:22-25, Candy and her husband, Drew, started Fruitbearer in 1999 and have developed a reputation of integrity and sensitivity in publishing circles. You can trust us to guard your voice and vision.
  • Assurance: The Fruitbearer Team stays abreast of the latest publishing industry standards and technology.
