First and foremost we are a group that loves to read!

Our love for education, books and authors expand over thirty years. We are educators, tutors, writers, and authors.

We specialize in first-time authors who are skittish to share their story with just anyone. WE UNDERSTAND! It’s your story.

You don’t want anyone to tell you anything negative about your story.

We get it. We are touchy about our stories too…lol!

That’s why we want to walk you through this process. With a few books under our belt, we believe PharSide will be a good fit for you. On the next page, you can meet our authors that entrusted their first time with us.

In addition to our editing services is publishing consultation. Traditional services are not the only way to publish your novel. Self-publishing services are many and vast. Both, traditional and self-publishing has its pro’s and con’s but after we discuss them you can decide what is best for you and your budget.
