  • We don't retain a percentage of your earnings or have "minimum sales" requirements. We're¬†simply your publishing concierge.¬†

Who Are We and Why Do We Do Things This Way?

Finn-Phyllis Press was founded by 6x author Elizabeth Lyons. 

She started the company in 2004, intending to publish only her books.

But after multiple people asked her to put the same effort and care into publishing their books that she put into her own, she thought, "Maybe this is an opportunity to provide the publishing model, industry explanations, and service levels I wish I'd had when I was first starting out!"

Elizabeth loves nothing more than words, stories, and taking the hassle out of publishing so others can enjoy a straightforward process for getting their books on the market and in the hands of readers.


In Authors' Own Words...

"Do not hesitate to reach to out to Finn-Phyllis Press. You will be well taken care of. I loved every moment of the process!"

-Jacqueline Hopper, author of Becoming

"I would never have gotten my books finished without Elizabeth. I never imagined how much a book, done right, could springboard my career." 

Chris Martinez, author of 7 books

"The value and guidance Elizabeth provided during the publishing of my book far exceeded my expectations. I never expected the process to feel so organized and easy."

-Sheila Whittington, author of The Daily Seed
