Books are the intellectual soul of the human race—the mother of information and the father of our future. Novels let us imagine the unimaginable; they take us to the desires of our hearts as well as to magical places. Books educate and provide us with a bottomless pool of information on every imaginable subject. "My books are water; those of the great geniuses are wine—everybody drinks water." —Mark Twain

Every day another great book is written. Throughout history, the possible gifts of thousands of great books were never offered because some publisher did not take the time to look at the offering. "The profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until an equal mind and heart finds and publishes it." —Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mission statement of the Author’s Workshop and the Petersen Family of Publishing Professionals is simple.

We want to do everything possible to provide the means for authors to show their books to the world. "A room without books is like a body without a soul." —Cicero

Our desire for our authors is to offer their book to buyers, reviewers, and readers using proven book marketing and public relations methods. Our goal is to help turn the writer's dream of becoming a published author into a reality. The Author’s Workshop has worldwide marketing and distribution capabilities. It is comprised of book publishing professionals, top-notch publishing industry experts, including copy writers, editors, typesetters, designers, foreign rights negotiators, international book distributors, multilingual translators, technical writers for a variety of scientific fields, photographers, and public relations and marketing experts.

All of us at the Author’s Workshop look forward to assisting you in the myriad steps that are necessary to make you and your book a successful venture. "That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed in profit." —Amos Bronson Alcott
