Do you want to indie publish, but need help?

Beyond the Bookery is here to help find the right balance of indie publishing and traditionally publishing for you.

Beyond the Bookery was founded to help all Christian authors publish their book in the ways that work for them and that is where our services come in.

We offer a wide variety of services for all of your publishing needs.

We are a strictly Christian company and all clients must agree with our Statement of Faith on our About page.

Be sure to read the whole page to stay up to date on what services are currently being provided and who you can work with to make your manuscript (or social accounts, and even your website!) the best possible finished product it can be.

Abigail Kay Harris is a daughter of the King, a sister to seven, with a homeschooling-real-estate-agent-and-do-it-all Momma, who taught her to do anything. Abigail's passionate love of the written word leads her to spend her time reading, writing, she's commonly found to be using sarcasm, and defining obscure words. When she’s not searching for words to fill a blank page, she enjoys going on walks, having tea, watching sunrises, learning new things, and spending her time in the outdoors, especially mountains, beaches, and forests.

 

In February of 2023, Abigail founded Beyond the Bookery; her small press, book store, and online boutique. She has assisted more than twenty authors in reaching their publishing dreams with her publishing lines, has shared five anthologies with the world, and looks forward to more releases in the near future.
