  • Author Testimonials | 5310 Publishing | Publishers of Adult and Young Adult Fiction

    Author Testimonials Rachel Le Mesurier – The Musician's Promise Series – Artie's Courage A Hero's Hope Sofia's Freedom I’m very happy with the whole experience. They’ve been very patient and understanding with me as a disabled author, which I’ve greatly appreciated; their contract was very good compared to the industry standard for a first-time author, and they’ve involved me in the creative process throughout (which many publishers don’t). They don’t offer an advance, but most publishers don’t do advances these days, especially for debut authors. 5310 Publishing never asked for a single penny from me, just as it should be for a traditional publisher, and unlike many small-press publishers do not force the author to do their own publicity (they request that you should help to promote your books on social media, but it’s not a requirement). I think my favourite thing about them is that they’re very ethical and do a lot for worthy causes, which is something I’m very passionate about too. I’m very happy working with them and would highly recommend the whole publishing experience to any authors considering sending in their manuscript. Cheryl Eager A Kiss to Wake Me When Two Stars Collide I am so thankful today and every day for my publisher Eric and 5310 Publishing! Dreams really do come true! They are the best to work with—intelligent, kind, trustworthy, approachable... I’m very excited and honored to work with such a great team at 5310! They’ve been the BEST! Thank you for making my dreams come true! Eric Williams of 5310 Publishing is the mastermind behind the beautiful cover of A Kiss to Wake Me. He designed dozens of covers for the novel before he finally knew he had it just right. I had a lot of say throughout the process, and his intuition of knowing the story and my vision culminated in the best cover for the book. I can’t describe how much I love the cover for A Kiss to Wake Me and appreciate all the hard work that went into getting it just right. It is PERFECT! Cori Nevruz Dirty Laundry Left Without Answers Noxious My publisher has been wonderful! Great to work with, such a great experience! It’s been a crazy ride since early 2020 when I decided to write a novel… I’m thankful to so many, but a big one is my publisher; thanks for taking a chance on me! I enjoyed publishing, and it was a great experience to learn what goes into a book, and I just love having a team behind me, designing, editing, and advising me. Eric has been very supportive, and I appreciate all the advice I’ve been given. Not just advice, but encouragement, tips, and everything. I’m brand new to publishing, and Eric has been very patient with me and held my hand every step of the way, and really made me feel special like I really did something great. I know they see many writers, so it really means a lot. K.V. Peck The Memories Between Us I’m so grateful 5310 Publishing chose my work, and I’m grateful that I chose them for their professionalism, forward-thinking, and commitment to their authors’ success. I love working with an independent traditional press that represents diverse voices and has a passion for making the world a better place. I first conversed with Eric on social media to determine if my work was a good fit for 5310 Publishing. That led to a query, synopsis, a full manuscript submission, and an enthusiastic offer of a contract. Eric answered my countless questions about the publication process and contract, worked with me on the title for my book, and on the outstanding cover and inside graphics. Alex provided a meticulous editorial review of my manuscript. I had creative input on all suggested edits, The team worked closely with me on blurbs, taglines, and our marketing plan. 5310 created the audiobook of The Memories Between Us. I had input on the “voice” of each major character and editing of the audiobook. 5310 Publishing places books with major retailers worldwide and continues to expand distribution channels. They took care of book promotion, including announcements, cover reveals, special offers, free audiobook codes, special pricing, limited-time offers through specific retail partners, and offers access to free samples to promote our work and attract new readers. They also amplify author announcements of events and appearances. 5310 Publishing is growing and publishes quality fiction. I’ve read many of my Author Family’s books, and I’m glad to be in the company of highly rated authors. The 5310 MyAuthor Portal allows us to update news on our website page (yay, I didn’t have to build and host a website!), write blogs, and access resources and marketing tools. Authors also enjoy engagement and author appreciation bonuses and special discounts, which I haven’t heard of other small presses offering. Eric continues to provide information, ideas, and input for making my book a success. I look forward to publishing more books with 5310 Publishing. R. Loomis Touch of Kindness The team at 5310 Publishing has been helpful in supporting me as an author and have walked me through each step of the process. When I have questions, they thoroughly answer them. Alex was extremely thorough in the editing process and helped make my book ready for publication. I felt very encouraged when he told me to add details, showing me that this publishing house wants the focus to be on a good story and not a stringent word count. The interior design of the book was very well done with a lot of attention to detail such as the graphics at the beginning of each chapter matching the cover. Speaking of the cover, it was beautifully done by Eric and I have received a lot of great feedback about how eye catching it is. I have also been impressed by their willingness to create media content for my book and events. They have been instrumental in coordinating an audiobook as well as being a liaison to both news outlets and book reviewers. I look forward to our continued partnership and the release of more of my books in the future with 5310 Publishing. Chelsea Caslie – The Fantasia Series – Lost in Fantasia Fatal Reset A Broken Game Working with 5310 Publishing has been amazing! Understanding the publishing process and everything involved for an author was daunting. Eric and Alex alleviated any stress I felt. They are knowledgeable about every step in the process and truly care about the books they publish. One of the greatest parts of working with 5310 is feeling like someone is championing your books as much as you are. Alex is meticulous in his editing, rooting for your characters as he provides guidance on how to improve scenes. Eric is organized and supportive, helping you meet every deadline with ease. I've achieved my dream of seeing my books published, and I'm so happy I found the right publishing company to help me! M.A. Quigley The Complexities of Love Eric works on a tight schedule, he knows what he is doing, and is very fair. I absolutely love my cover design. Alex did a wonderful job. I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never had a novel published before, and the support has been nothing short of amazing. I fell in love with the cover when the publisher first showed it to me and couldn’t stop looking at it. My grandfather had a bird aviary, and l used to watch him feed his canaries, rosellas, and budgies. I hope he’s smiling in heaven because I’ve got a bird on the front cover of my debut novel. Thank you, Eric, Alex, and the team, for publishing my book for me. Your attention to detail, marketing, and professionalism is second to none. Diane Farrugia Among Stars & Shadows Publishing my debut with 5310 Publishing was a true learning experience from start to finish. Alex's editing notes were so thorough and really helped take my novel to the next level, and Eric's cover design was all I'd ever dreamed of and more. As a true traditional publisher should, they never asked for any money from me, but I was still included in the decision-making when it came to my book, from the choice of title to the cover design. I will always be grateful they decided to take a chance on my manuscript, and I look forward to publishing more books with them. Ana C. Sales A Love for Doctor Mary Taylor – In Brazilian Portuguese: Um Amor Para a Doutora Mary Taylor The Greystones: Se Apaixone Por Eles A Ponte Que Eu Não Atravessei I’ve published three books with Eric and Alex, and one got translated. Publishing my books with 5310 was a breeze! Working with Eric is great. He accommodates me all the time since I don’t know much of the English language or anything about publishing, so he does everything for me. As an author with a disability, I feel like Eric understands me and my limitations. He never made me feel ‘out of place’ or any less important than his other authors. I feel like I belong here, he incentivizes me to keep writing, and I can’t wait to release all of my future books with 5310 Publishing! Sara Bushway Honey Beaumont I was so worried a publisher wouldn’t care about my book as much as I do, but I feel like Eric really does! I couldn’t have gotten through this publishing stuff without all of his help and support! It’s been a pretty good experience. As one of 5310’s authors, I feel like they’ve done a lot for me. They taught me how to use Twitter analytics, offered to send some ARCs to reviewers and such (which is great because I have no connections), and promoted my book. I’m happy with them. Harisson Shaws The Lonesome Road My book looks amazing! Eric has really outdone himself. I can’t thank him enough. It looks great! Words can’t describe how happy I am. Darren Finney Faithfully Addicted I find them to be competent, hard-working, understanding, and knowledgeable.

  • Celebrating Kindness: Stories from Our Community + Giveaway Winners Announcement

    We recently celebrated generosity and compassion through a special giveaway. Our community shared touching stories of kindness, from selfless acts of support to heartfelt gestures of love. We held a special giveaway for our young adult fantasy book, Touch of Kindness , where we asked our readers to share acts of kindness they experienced or performed. The response was heartwarming, and we were touched by the many stories of generosity and compassion. We are excited to share some of these inspiring stories with you today. The giveaway winners’ names are at the end of this post. [Click here to skip to the announcement] . Kadie the Spicy Piscey : “I was a surrogate for twin boys for a couple in Texas!”   Bornana27 : “While my mom was in the hospital, one of my parents coworker brought me supper everyday. Probably one of the kindest thing anyone has ever done for me during the hardest part of my life.”   Jacqalin Mills : “This is an act of kindness that I did for someone else. As I scrolled through Facebook recently, I came across a post made in one of the groups I follow, it was a request for food from the mom of a small family who were really in a tough spot. She did not live close enough to me for a drop off, so I sent her a message and told her I would Walmart deliver her some groceries if she didn’t mind sending me her address. She sent it to me along with some of their favorite foods and drinks. I did not have a lot of money, but I was able to send a small amount of food to help them get through the week. It felt extremely good to be able to do that for them. I thank God for bringing me to Facebook at the right time to see her post and help. God is good!”   Buckybarneswife106 : “My mom, my sisters, and I have been working on opening a homeless shelter for our local veterans that don’t have any homes. It’s a major work in progress, but we’ve had people who want to help invest.”   kaitlynnbelmont5127 : “My best friend knows that I’ve never been to a drive-in movie before. She not only bought my ticket, but she, along with a few other good friends, pulled out the seats of the car and filled it with an air mattress and tons of blankets, pillows and lots of snacks. She also bought all our other friends tickets as well which was so kind and generous of her to do. We all had a blast.”   E3 : “When my father had recently died, one of my classmates found out and she brought me a stuffed animal and a heartfelt card. I was 7.” Maira-zt3zl : “While my mom was in the hospital, one of my parent’s coworkers brought me supper every day. Probably one of the kindest things anyone has ever done for me during the hardest part of my life.”   kaivalentine7001 : “On our way out from the store one day, I saw a car pulling out and something had fallen off the top of it. [...] I picked it up and drove slowly around the parking lot until I saw the car again and went up to it. I told the older man who got out that I had found this off the road from his car and he got teary eyed. Come to find out, not only was it his phone, but he was coming down to our state for a business trip and he had everything on it: money, information, and everything he needed for his trip and work. He thanked me multiple times for what I did. If the situation came up again, I’d do it all the same.”  goldenticket_finder : “My mom has been so supportive of me as I have been trying to get a job and keep getting rejected and she just keeps cheering me on.” Kerri Wright Graham : “Last week I gave bags of my grandson's gently used clothes & tennis shoes to someone who could use them. Each season he grows out of them, I find someone to give them to. I also love to surprise co-workers with typed up scriptures or a word of encouragement left on their desk. I love spreading kindness wherever God needs me. I feel blessed beyond my deserving.” Giveaway Winners We are incredibly grateful to everyone who participated and shared their stories. These acts of kindness remind us of the goodness in the world and inspire us to spread kindness in our own lives.   We are thrilled to announce the two winners of our giveaway and their acts of kindness: kaivalentine7001   and   mafrick.author   kaivalentine7001 : “I recently lost my cat I had for seven years after she was hit. I was utterly devastated and felt so lost without my companion. One day, my aunt told me she had a surprise for me and when I opened it, I saw she had recreated my cat as a plushie, to remember her always. She had gone out of her way, paid who knows how much to have this little plushie made in the likeness of my little kitty. It brought me to tears when I first saw it, and I still sometimes bring it out and pet it just to remember her.”   mafrick.author : “My husband put a shelf up in my craft room 😅 Kinda silly, but it seriously means so much to me!”   Congratulations, and thank you all for being part of our community!   If you didn’t win, here’s a coupon to get Touch of Kindness  for 10% OFF , valid until July 31st, 2024: KINDNESSMATTERS — Apply discount code at check out.

She’s fine staying in the background, helping her friends, and supporting her single mom any way she can while living in her small Texas town. That all changes when she meets a strange girl at school who is running away. In true Dori fashion, she welcomes the girl into her home without hesitation. Little does Dori know that in helping this girl she’ll spark a chain of events that will change her life forever. After showing Dori her ability to influence people with a single touch, Dori is left with more questions than answers. The next day, Dori is captured and taken to the Otherworld, a place full of magic and fantastical creatures. She learns the girl she helped was betrothed to a prince, and now Dori must fill the void, marrying His Highness in the girl's stead. Dori’s mission becomes clear: get back home no matter what. However, getting back to the Mortalworld will be harder than she could have ever expected. "The main characters’ slow-burn love affair is both steamy and chaste and will appeal to romance fans.

  • How to Overcome Writer’s Block and Keep Your Creativity Flowing

    What Exactly is Writer's Block? Writer’s block is like an uninvited guest that crashes the creative party, leaving you staring at a blank page with no idea what to write next. It's a frustrating and often disheartening experience that can strike anyone, whether you’re a seasoned author or just starting your first novel. The causes can vary—from lack of inspiration to personal stress—but the result is the same: a feeling of being stuck. But don't worry, you're not alone, and there are plenty of ways to get past it! Best Proven Ways to Combat Writer's Block Write Every Day One of the best ways to beat writer’s block is to make writing a daily habit. Think of it like exercise for your creativity. Even if it feels like you’re writing nonsense, the important thing is to keep those words flowing. Here’s how you can do it: Freewriting : Set a timer for 10-15 minutes and write whatever comes to mind. No editing, no worrying about grammar—just pure, unfiltered thoughts. Journaling : Reflect on your day, your thoughts, or anything that’s on your mind. It’s a great way to clear mental clutter and might even spark a new idea. Writing Prompts : Use prompts to give your imagination a nudge. There are tons of prompts available online to get you started. Edit Your Book If starting from scratch feels too daunting, why not switch gears and focus on editing? Revisiting your manuscript can reignite your connection to your story and characters. Plus, seeing your progress can be incredibly motivating. Here are some tips: Read Aloud : This helps you catch errors and awkward phrasing. Focus on One Thing at a Time : Tackle dialogue, description, or pacing individually to make the process less overwhelming. Get Feedback : Share your work with up to two trusted alpha readers to get fresh perspectives and ideas. Other Tips to Overcome Writer's Block Change Your Environment A change of scenery can work wonders. Try writing somewhere different—maybe a cozy café, a peaceful park, or a lively library. New surroundings can spark new ideas and break the monotony. Set Small, Achievable Goals Don’t aim to write an entire chapter in one go. Set small, manageable goals instead. Whether it’s writing 300 words or finishing one scene, these small wins can build momentum and confidence. Take Breaks and Practice Self-Care Sometimes, the best way to get unstuck is to step away for a bit. Take a walk, read a book, or spend time with loved ones. Taking care of yourself can recharge your creative batteries. Engage with Other Art Forms Immerse yourself in other forms of art. Listen to music, visit an art gallery, or watch a movie. Different artistic expressions can offer new perspectives and inspire your writing. Create a Writing Routine Find a time of day when you feel most creative and make it your dedicated writing time. Whether it’s early morning, late at night, or during lunch breaks, consistency can help train your brain to get into writing mode. Use Mind Maps and Outlines If you’re stuck on plot or character development, try mind mapping or outlining. These tools can help you organize your thoughts and see the bigger picture, making it easier to move forward. Embrace Imperfection Remember, your first draft doesn’t need to be perfect. Give yourself permission to write badly. Editing can always come later. The important thing is to get your ideas down on paper. Writer’s block is a common hurdle, but it doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks. There are many ways you can break free from writer’s block and keep your creativity flowing. Remember, every writer faces this challenge at some point, but with persistence and the right strategies, you can overcome it and finish that book you’ve been working on. I hope this helps.

  • The Story Behind "The Complexities of Love." What inspired M.A. Quigley's Romantic LGBTQ+ Novel.

    Exclusive interview with Australian author Melisa Quigley tells us a little bit of the story behind her young adult coming-of-age book, what inspired her to write it, and her future projects. How long did it take you to write The Complexities of Love? It took me five years to write The Complexities of Love. What is your story about? The Complexities of Love is a coming-of-age story about Mark as he confronts the truth about his family and his identity, and it is set in Australia. It’s about Mark, a thirteen-year-old closeted gay male who tries to navigate his way through life hoping his family won’t find out he is gay. His best friend, Dave, disappeared when they were teenagers and Dave wrote Mark a letter saying he wanted to ask him a question. Dave returns ten years later in the ’70s, and Mark can’t wait to see him. Dave’s parents are having a welcome home party for him, and Mark wants to know if Dave still has feelings for him. Dave reveals a secret that he has kept since childhood, which leads to a terrible misunderstanding that will have grave consequences for Mark and his family. All Mark yearns for is for Dave to return his love, but will that happen, or will he find someone else? Why is your book titled "The Complexities of Love" ? Anyone who has been in a relationship knows how complex it can be. It’s not just about the person we love, it encompasses so much more like race, religion, and what other family members think about our boyfriend/girlfriend. My novel is not your typical boy meets girl/boy romance where they fall in love and live happily ever after. This book is about family bonds, complex sibling relationships, and Mark’s family history. Anyone who has been in a relationship knows how complex it can be. What inspired you to write a gay romance? I was inspired to write the book because I have three gay relatives, one of which used to confide in me about he felt and what he was going through in the ’70s and beyond. I was the only person in my family (and our relatives) who accepted him. I wanted the world to know what it was like being gay in the ’60s and ’70s. In Australia, gay marriage has been legal since December 2017, but in many countries, there is still a stigma about gay people, and they can’t marry. Imagine how it would feel if you loved someone and society didn’t accept you because you were of the same sex and you couldn’t marry? I would be devastated if that happened to me. When I was querying The Complexities of Love, I thought the world wasn’t interested in people from the LGBT community and what they’ve been through in life up until now. I want people who read my novel to feel that they are not alone and that there are people in the world just like them who are going through the same thing. Everyone deserves to love and be loved regardless of who they choose, and they should be allowed to get married. Are you writing anything new? I am currently writing a novel about abuse. Many people suffer in silence and say nothing. I know several people who are victims of abuse and have said nothing. Some women and men over the past years are starting to have the courage to speak out. Something needs to be done to make people feel safe wherever they are and whatever they’re doing. I hope that the novel I’m writing will give readers the courage to report it and walk away. Tell me a little bit about yourself. I was born and raised in Victoria, Australia, and have an Associate Degree in Professional Writing and Editing from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. My work has been published in anthologies in America, Australia, India, the UK, and the Philippines. When I’m not writing I love to meditate, do yoga, cook or do gardening and go for long walks with my husband and two dogs. If you’re interested in my novel and me, you can find me on Twitter @MQuigley1963. I also post about my life and my books on Instagram using the same handle. I believe everyone has a story in them to tell. What’s your story? Click here to get a copy of The Complexities of Love.
