The Writer's Coffee Shop has humble beginnings. What started out as a hobby turned into a full-time publishing business. CEO Amanda Hayward created a unique online community of aspiring authors and avid readers. As the fan base grew to over 60,000 members, she decided to open a publishing house to help these talented writers become published authors.
E L James was one of those authors. Hayward saw something special in "Fifty Shades of Grey" and decided to publish the series. This book has become a cultural phenomenon with over 360 news articles from such prominent outlets as The New York Times, MSNBC and Entertainment Weekly all buzzing about "The Book," as it is called. The Writer's Coffee Shop helped foster the buzz surrounding this book and learned a lot in the process. They are a young company, but they have handled themselves like seasoned professionals in the wake of the overwhelming response from the press and the American public.
The successful sale of the "Fifty Shades" Trilogy to Random House is a win-win for both the author and the publishing house. The Writer's Coffee Shop will use its portion of the sale to promote the many other talented authors they publish. They have a very diverse catalog that consists of works in multiple genres of literature. Sherri Hayes's book, "Behind Closed Doors", is a part of the romance genre that The Writer's Coffee Shop is now famous for. They are also preparing to publish Gene Doucette's comedic fictional journey through time, "Hellenic Immortal", a follow-up to his successful first novel, "Immortal". The Writer's Coffee Shop is also leaping into the ever-popular middle grade and young adult genres with William j. Barry's "Sebastian and the Afterlife" and K. B. Hoyle's "The Six".
"We are so excited about the future of The Writer's Coffee Shop," says Jenny Pedroza, Chief Marketing Officer for The Writer’s Coffee Shop. "I believe that we are ‘the little publisher that could,’ and there is no telling what the future holds for us."
Aside from the monetary gain from the sale of "Fifty Shades" to Random House, The Writer's Coffee Shop has garnered a priceless amount of media attention. Hayward has been featured in numerous articles and media outlets across Australia.
The Writer's Coffee Shop is the one to watch in the publishing world.
