Sheri Hauser began her journey in the Christian publishing business all because of dreams.

"I learned how to interpret my dreams and ended up writing them down. The dreams provided the inspiration for my business," Hauser said.

She works full time as a nurse and still finds time to pour her energy into the labor of love that she and her husband created that is Glorybound Publishing.

"I didn't know anything about starting a publishing company," she said.

Hauser spent three years researching and learning about computer programs, web design and the Lastertrain digital publishing software.

She also began writing books and has since completed many works including children's stories.

She and her husband, Paul, have operated the company since 2005 that once was based in Las Vegas.

She chooses Christian and spiritual writers by an interview process and offers the standard ten percent royalty for books sold from her store.

"I tell my writers that they provide me with the hamburger, and I fix it so it's in a bun," Hauser said.

The company assists with the editing process and ISBN registration. Hauser explained that many of the authors sell their books through websites, their churches, speaking engagements or their ministries.

Glorybound prints and binds the books in-house. Hauser also offers publishing classes to include copyright law, registration and design.

"It's an awesome thing for a writer to have this resource," she said.

Hauser also operates a complete sound studio she uses for her Books Made Alive program that brings children's books to life with music and acting.

In addition, she welcomes budding songwriters as well as playwrights.

One of her authors is a grandmother who enjoys writing plays for her grandchildren to act out.

If that were not enough, Hauser rents space for $10 per hour for individuals to come in and take advantage of the available resources needed to create a book.

These workshops feature pre-loaded laptops with publishing software to include Photoshop and InDesign.

"People can come to a class and learn about pagination software and how to upload their books," she said. Also, those books can be printed and bound at the class.

"We give away a lot of books. It's part of Christian authoring to help out kids and the community. My goal is not to make money, but to change lives," Hauser said.

Glorybound is located at 6401 2nd St., Ste F in Prescott Valley.

Divine Providence. I was researching software and resources to start my own small publishing company. This is the only noncommercial hit. I am so glad I followed it. Mrs. Hauser is a huge inspiration. I wish her and her family continued success and prosperity with Glorybound Publishing. I love that name.
