Morgan James makes an extraordinary effort to help its authors grow their businesses.

-Publishers Weekly

Just as Morgan James Publishing revolutionized book publishing from the author’s standpoint in 2003, so their Persona Publishing™ division is revolutionizing the self-publishing experience for a generation of writers to come.

Morgan James Publishing was built on a single premise—founder David L. Hancock’s commitment to help authors find an affordable, safe, and credible way to realize their publishing dreams and bring their books to market.

For many authors, the world of self-publishing is fraught with peril. Common concerns are the lack of credibility, of professional design, of expert support in distribution, marketing, and community building, just to name a few.

Persona Publishing is all about making it simple for you! We offer a unique solution to the longtime plagues of the self-publishing industry by upholding our commitments to integrity and affordability, and our desire to provide helpful support.


Offering  truly affordable publishing options. Depending on the level of support you desire, you get to pick 1 of only 3 options that meet your needs!


We won’t try to upsell you into other offers. What you see is what you get!


Morgan James Publishing will be overseeing the success of your book. This means you can rest easy in knowing that you have chosen to entrust your book to those called The Future of Publishing.

We’re Looking For

We accept both Fiction and Non-Fiction manuscripts from authors that are passionate about their message and committed to the quality of their work.

Even though we are a self-publishing brand, we are committed to the highest standards of Publishing. Therefore, we require a formal submission and will be evaluating your material by the following criteria:

  • Quality of Writing. We are looking for evidence of developed thinking and ideas. We want to see that you have done your homework and that we can all be proud to call your book a Persona Publishing book.
  • Quality of Editing. Again, we want authors who have done some homework prior to coming to us, therefore we only accept professionally edited manuscripts. (If you don’t have an editor, we can provide an outside resource for you as well.)
  • Quality of Concept. When we put our names on a book, we stand behind that book 100%. Therefore (to put this delicately), if we would be embarrassed if our kids (or our mother’s) read your book, then we will have to pass. We fully believe in your freedom of expression, we just aren’t the right fit for you.
