Quality. Integrity. Drive. Port. A new kind of publishing.
Port City Publishing is a dynamic new kind of publishing company, based in Wilmington, North Carolina. We’re glad you’re here.
Our mission: Provide insight, guidance, and resources to passionate writers.
People everywhere have great stories, ideas, and lessons to share. Many, for whatever reason, don't find a home in traditional publishing. Some writers might actually prefer to self-publish. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's courageous, and not only that, but these days, many times it even makes better business sense.
But there is something wrong with those people paying more than they should to self-publishing companies that deliver less than they should.
The goal with our first book, The Edge of Legend: An Incredible Story of Faith and Basketball, was simply to launch it, and see where it went. It’s gone further than we imagined, and it's launched its author's career. We now want to give others that chance.
The Port team’s road to publishing Edge was an arduous one, one much more difficult than they’d first imagined. When we began, we never imagined the countless minute details—oh, the details—involved in publishing a book. Or at least, publishing a quality book. But now, we've compiled a first-class team with first-class resources, and we want to offer what we've learned to you, the writer with a dream.
Funny thing about dreams: they can become real.
