Muirgen Publishing, LLC

A lot has happened for Andrea Stein since she launched Muirgen Publishing, LLC, in 2014. Her first award-winning self-published novel came out February 10, 2015, with three more novels and a boxed set scheduled throughout the rest of the year. “Fortune’s Horizon” is currently available in both ebook and paperback formats from Amazon.

New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Bolen said of Andrea’s first release: “This sparkling debut novel has it all: action, spies, the high seas — and a sigh-worthy romance.”

The path to publishing did not come without reaching out for assistance from a variety of professionals. “After I researched the ins and outs of book reviewers, blog tours, etc., I realized I needed help. I know I can’t do everything,” Andrea said. With the help of Laura Johnson of the SBDC Marketing Strategies, business lawyer Kent Willis, website designer Terry Pappy, and online romance publicist Danielle Barclay of Barclay Publicity, she has a great plan to move forward.

She writes as Andrea K. Stein and can be reached through her website, www.andreakstein.com; Facebook/authorandreakstein; or Twitter – @andreakstein
