My mission is to aid novice, intermitted writers see their lifelong dream come true. Helping them along their creative journey each step of the way, advocating on authors’ behalf that the masses can have access to their fresh genuine talented literature. Don’t shy away from your dreams of being published due to fear. Make contact and experience the personal attention you and your manuscript deserve.

Dreams CAN Come TRUE

Take that first baby step, grab your old manuscript off the shelf. Give a solid hardy puff and blow plethora years of dust away. Free your creative muse now permeating the room and send your treasured manuscript my way. It will cost you nothing but manual time and a bit of postage to have it evaluated for possible publication. Whatever you do, don’t live with the regret of “What if” when your manuscript can be read for publishing consideration. You have a wealth of first-time experiences in your life to recall fond important memories.

Nothing is more satisfying than relaxing in front a fireplace with glass of dry red wine curling up with a good book, the romantic feel, the sweet aroma of its pages. This is truer when it is your very own book. It will be like you are reading it for the very first time once published. Traditional publishing avenues usually require your manuscript be submitted via an agent. Most agents aren’t interested unless you have a publisher. A catch-22 circumstance. You have loads of choices and not everyone is out to become famous or rich, especially with their first book. How active author is promoting his/her book can determine its fate. Perhaps, you only want your manuscript published as a gift for your special occasion. Or you want the last word with family and friends when you expire. Whatever your reason for your manuscript? Isn’t time for your dreams to come true? To see your dream transformed into reality? Say no to all those past rejection letters . . .  Put passivity in your life . . . You deserve this . . . You deserve to be recognized . . . You deserve to be published!

If you don’t believe in yourself who will?

I began offering these services noticing how difficult it was for people to see their life-long dream of being published fail. Authors frustrated with piles upon piles of rejection letters from traditional publishers. I am a person just like you attempting to bring happiness and love to as many people possible. My Imprints: Gary Drury Publishing, Drury Publishing, The Publisher, The Drury Gazette, and Theo’s Compass are NOT-FOR-PROFIT. DO NOT confuse the two NOT-FOR-PROFIT and NONPROFIT they are different creatures. Everyone recommended is treated like family, offered suggestions to make their manuscript ready for possible publication. Whether you are looking to self-publish, share publish, or traditional publish. I can help those wanting a quality book of their very own for family, friends or colleagues fulfil their aspirations .

individuals seeking me out are not vain, not seeking fame and not blinded by instant fortune. These authors are like you wanting to share themselves, their experiences, their creativity with others. Example of why some authors publish: One author dying of cancer wanted published book of his poem collection for gifts at a 40th wedding anniversary. Others have had a dream since teen years of having their own published book. Some individuals have come to me because they want the last word with family and friends when they die. The request has been myriad and reasoning’s behind their decision as varied.

I permit authors use of my own imprints to give their books a more finished and professional look. Library of Congress Numbers, ISBN and bar codes can to included should author want their book ready for resell. If your goal is to publish and make money that option is available to you also. Everyone has their own goals to achieve.

I do everything myself to ready an author’s book including: editing, grammar, typesetting, proofing, galley proofs, author correction and or changes, front and rear cover design, shipping to author. I farm out printing of books a cost I have no control over. I use my own funds to cover general expenses such as ISBN numbers, Barcodes etc.… then invoice author to recoup. I am NOT providing a loan to any author as they are given an estimate of their book cost with printing prior to initiating book project. I work as closely with their budget to see author’s book to fruition.

The Publisher AKA as Gary Drury Publishing offers consulting and publishing services for those who want to self-publish, share publish along with traditional publishing. I close the gap between self-publishing and royalty publishing, working directly with the author to meet his/her publishing goals. Each book receives professional and creative custom design. My service is individualized to accommodate each author and book project whether you're looking to print 100 copies or 10,000 copies. eBook services are available for new or previously published books. eBook formats to match your book needs. Your book is produced entirely in the USA of premium quality materials.

The Publisher established in 1985, Kentucky.

Do not live with fear of “what if?” Or what could have happened instead embrace what life has to offer with vitality. Live without fear of failure because you only fail when you do not attempt to succeed. Failure is a learning experience; without failure you have learned nothing. Take a deep breath, inhale deeply, and exhale slowly. Take charge of your manuscript and tell your story. Show the world who you are supposed to be with pride.
