An Interview with David Hancock, CEO and Founder - Morgan James Publishing
Join us to hear how publishing a book could enhance the personal credibility of people who have a high level of expertise in their chosen field of specialization
Morgan James Publishing was founded in 2003 by David L. Hancock, a mortgage banker at the time, who had been less than thrilled with the conventional book publishing process—yet pleasantly surprised by the immense power of publishing a book.
Created by an Entrepreneurial Author for Entrepreneurial Authors, Morgan James became the first hybrid publisher to blend the strength, credibility, and distribution of traditional publishing with the flexibility, author involvement, and time to market of self-publishing.
David, with his bride, Susan, named the new company after their two children, daughter Morgan Renee and son Ethan James.
In just over fifteen short years, Morgan James Publishing has grown from publishing 6 books per year to publishing an average of 195 front list titles each year, with a backlist of over 2,700 titles.
Morgan James focuses on three book categories: Nonfiction, Fiction, and Faith.
Our vision is to publish titles that educate, encourage, inspire and entertain with current, consistent, relevant, titles available everywhere books are sold.
