When Herman Melville wrote about Ishmael’s adventure on the fiery seas publishing a novel as significant as Moby Dick could not have been on his mind. Today, it’s been over 150 years since this great piece of literature was published. Since then a countless number of publishing submissions have graced the shelves of our libraries and bookstores.
Many are familiar with the author Jane Austen’s literary classic Pride and Prejudice which was was first seen as a publication in 1813. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by writer L. Frank Baum was published in 1900 after being submitted to a myriad of publishers over many years. From manuscript submission to the publishing of first editions, we have authors to thank for each and every fantastic piece of writing that has made it into the hands of countless readers.
Literary Book Gifts is a webstore that celebrates these high-quality works of literature that so many of us have enjoyed reading. Books and authors are always in mind when creating each addition to the catalog. The titles and authors are chosen to suit young adults, women, and men alike. These stories are meant to be enjoyed long after reading the final pages and the cover is closed. As designs, now they can be.
I have a passion for books and helping authors. From blog tours to writing competitions, I have had the pleasure of providing numerous gifts to help promote authors at all stages of their publishing journey.
