About Morgan Pierce Media & Publishing™
Morgan Pierce Media & Publishing™ is unique in the world of publishing because we’re neither traditional publishing nor are we self-publishing. As an independent publisher, we bill ourselves as a ‘hybrid’ for Authors, and we proudly occupy a much-needed alternative in a rapidly changing publishing landscape. We provide a vast array of publishing/screenwriting, editing, and marketing services to our contracted Authors.
