And, apologies in advance…We were broadcasting live from the show in St. Louis, and didn’t realize our bandwidth was low until after the show. So, in other words, the audio is great, but the visual is blurry!

More about Boutique of Quality (bqb) Publishing and WriteLife Publishing
Founded in 2010 by Terri Ann Leidich because she sensed a dearth of options in the publishing industry for dedicated, involved authors, independent book publisher Boutique of Quality Books (BQB) Publishing Company was created to provide those authors with an avenue to publication while respecting and cultivating their input, creativity, and vision. BQB Publishing knows that you, as an author, have put your heart and soul into creating your written work. BQB keeps that in mind through every step of the publishing process.
In September of 2014, WriteLife LLC, went out of business and the name WriteLife Publishing was purchased as an imprint for Boutique of Quality Books Publishing Company. WriteLife authors were given the opportunity to sign with the new imprint and nonfiction titles that were previously published under our BQB Publishing imprint were moved to our WriteLife Publishing imprint. BQB Publishing is the fiction imprint for Boutique of Quality Books Publishing Company. WriteLife Publishing is the literary fiction and nonfiction imprint.
WriteLife Publishing is now part of Boutique of Quality Book Publishing Company, which is a traditional publishing house that incorporates some of the more attractive elements of self-publishing companies. The following diagram shows you how we do it.
