In January 2001, Tony Rose, publisher/CEO, Amber Communications Group, Inc., established Quality Press, a special service-book packaging imprint for authors who wanted to self-publish their books instead of waiting to gain an interest from mainstream publishers.
Yvonne Rose was appointed to head Quality Press and has turned over the last 14 years many, many thousands of self-published authors’ manuscripts into completed books. As the director of Quality Press, Yvonne and her professional team of editors, designers and printers, oversee the editing, design/layout, registration and manufacturing of every self-published author’s books. She also consults with the authors regarding their marketing, production, promotional, distribution and publicity goals.
Some recently completed books packaged for self-publishers include: I Need a Day to Pray by Tina Campbell, from the group, (Mary Mary); Understanding and Negotiating 360 Ancillary Rights Deals — An Artist Guide To Negotiating 360 Record Deals by Kendall Minter; Victory Together for Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Story of Dr. Warren H. Stewart, Sr., Governor Evan Mecham and the Historic Battle for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday in Arizona by Rev. Warren Stewart; and Rising Up from the Blood: A Legacy Reclaimed-A Bridge Forward — The Autobiography of Sarah Washington O’Neal Rush, The Great-Granddaughter of Booker T. Washington by Sarah Washington O’Neal Rush.
Without hesitation, Yvonne is an unbiased motivator who takes the time to understand and address the needs of all first-time authors who want to do something positive with their lives–-some have been on the wrong side of the law, some are recovering addicts, some have been abused, but all get the same respect and quality service. Yvonne is steadfast in her commitment to self-published authors who dare to dream big and feels that by introducing undiscovered literature to the world marketplace as bound books and eBooks, Quality Press can change the lives of millions of people in the United States and throughout the World. She firmly believes that: “We are many voices sharing one experience. We all have a story to tell, but only a chosen few of us are willing or able to share that story with the masses.”
Because of Yvonne’s beliefs and because of the company’s thousands of satisfied clients, Quality Press has become the number one self-publishing book packaging service for African Americans in the nation. Quality Press has a pool of top-quality editors and book designers with more than 200 years of combined experience in all genres of publishing and all facets of the media. The lineup of self-published books produced by Quality Press includes: non-fiction, fiction, biographies, poetry, business and career guides, children’s books, cookbooks, urban, historic and romance novels.
Yvonne is a top requested author for public speaking appearances and an advisor to countless aspiring authors. She gives each author personal attention, answering all their questions regarding the rules and regulations and the ins and outs of the book publishing industry. Yvonne has received many accolades from her clients who come from all walks of life, including: doctors, attorneys, educators, coaches and lawmakers. “You’re the best!” “Thanks for all your hard work!” “I love my book!” “Awesome job!” “You are such a motivating person.” “You inspire me!”
