WHO WE ARE
Candy Abbott and her husband, Drew, began the company in 1999, which is founded on the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25). Their motto, "Small Seeds for a Great Harvest," is based on Zechariah 4:10 and John 15:1-17. To learn more, click the following links:
Fruitbearer Vinedressers carefully prune, tend, and cultivate your manuscript so you can grow from aspiring author to published author in a safe environment.
Candy Abbott’s inspiration to start a publishing company began with a desire to help other authors get their God-inspired work into print.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
That there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and we are made in the image of this triune God in body, spirit, and soul.
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.
Designed to help finish the good work God has begun in you: From the storyline to dotting that last “i” and everything in between, our services are customized to fit your needs.
