Blue Handle Book Publishing

Blue Handle Publishing aims to change the future of publishing by breaking down industry barriers, building strong relationships with writers, and providing the tools and resources needed for authors to succeed.

Blue Handle helps authors tackle the barriers that exist within the current psychology of the publishing industry to help you get your work out into the world. These barriers include overpriced editing services, access to printing, connections to bookstores and e-book/audiobook conversion and distribution.
An alternative to self-publishing and traditional publishing, Blue Handle is a small press that will help you print, market and distribute your work to bookstores and digital platforms while retaining majority ownership. Our contracts show empowerment to the author, giving you a majority stake in royalties as high as 75%.
Although we can pay homage to tradition and embrace the industry that has brought us amazing works over the centuries, Blue Handle likes to push the envelope. Blue Handle aims to be that untapped sweet spot, with a strong investment on branding authors, with not just a name but a logo, in effort to stimulate engagement with readers and booksellers alike.

About Us

Blue Handle began when founder, writer and CEO Charles D’Amico ran into multiple issues trying to get his Neil Baggio Suspense Series published, and realized how much the game was stacked against the writer. He knew there were self-publishing options, but instead wanted to learn about the industry, grow and help repeat it for other individuals. Blue Handle officially launched in June 2020, and since then has signed with a handful of authors located in the West Texas area.

Whether it’s our author-centric approach to royalty and investment, our focus on branding or our Book Puma editorial services, Blue Handle is about reinventing how authors get the support and tools needed to get their work published.
