CaryPress International to be Acquired by Europe-Based Private Equity Buyer
CaryPress International, a self publishing and book development boutique, today announced it has agreed to be acquired by a private equity group.
The price of the business is "undisclosed."
"You should never build a business to keep it forever," she said. "It was a great time, and I had a good opportunity to turn it over to some people that I think will carry on our legacy and continue it as the author community has come to know and love it."
At an age when most people would be thinking of permanent vacations and grandchildren, Margret Bassett is still going full throttle.
"We started so small and had only two self publishing packages, but I had this vision even before we started officially. Some of the reasons we are different are, very quick publishing process, one project manager for each client, from start to finish, being personable: no canned responses and giving authors an option to take over the reigns of their marketing: by coaching them on how to do this on their own. Authors love control over their creative work, so they should be allowed to make a decision to outsource 100% of their book marketing to a company like ours, do it 100% on their own or any other ratio of outsourcing in between."
