Tell it well!


Publishing a book is easy, but doing it well takes a team effort. Want to work with a fun-loving and passionate team in Cebu (and Canada!) who care about quality, honesty, teamwork, the pursuit of excellence, and entrepreneurial spirit? Get to know us with a short Cebu office recruitment video here. Consider this opportunity to help a wide range of authors publish books in a variety of genres — fiction (thriller, sci fi, romance, etc), expert/business consultant books, memoirs, kids books, and a wide range of interesting nonfiction topics. Talk to diverse and interesting people every day. Deliver truly consultative advice and information to help authors make sense of a complex industry and decide what to do with their books (aka their “baby”). Join a dynamic, creative team at a successful small business where your contributions are highly valued and you have a significant impact.
