RICHER Press Announces the Creation of the Independent Book Distribution Cooperative to Expand Book Sales and Readership

When we launched RICHER Press in 2008, we established an eight-word mission statement,
"Shaping Thoughts and Changing Lives for the Better." Since then, we have strategically grown both our publishing portfolio of select titles and the number of passionate and talented authors with whom we partner and collaborate. In 2014, we launched the LIVING A RICHER LIFE~Life Change Talk Radio Show to give worthy authors the opportunity to participate in "live", nationally broadcast-ed Interviews and share their book and messages with thousands of potential readers.

With a strong core of RICHER Press titles and strategic relationships with scores of authors with competitive titles across many genres, we are now in a strong position to lead a unique and collaborative effort to get more of these quality books in the hands of more readers.

However, regardless of how well-written or the size of the potential market, we all know that "books do not sell themselves." Strategically positioning the "right book" into the "right market" coupled with aggressive sales and marketing are the keys to expanding book sales and readership.

To this end, RICHER Press has established partnerships with two of the country’s oldest wholesale, independent book distributors, Consortium and Small Press Distribution and has created a new collaborative effort called the Independent Book Distribution Collaborative or the IBDC.

IBDC will publish an annual catalog of selected book titles that will be the focus of RICHER Press' negotiations and collaborations with Consortium and Small Press Distribution. The titles listed in the catalog will be managed, end-to-end, by RICHER Press. This includes cooperative partner relations, distribution fees, book promotion, marketing, book acquisition, logistics, shipping, book sales and author royalty co-ordination. All catalog listings are limited to published authors who own the distribution rights of their work.

Books distributed, marketed, promoted and sold through the Independent Book Distribution Collaborative ARE NOT limited to titles published by RICHER Press.

We invite all authors who own the distribution rights to their work to consider the opportunity of becoming an IBDC member and listing their books in the 2015 Independent Book Distribution Collaborative
. You can learn how to become a member of the collaborative
 by clicking HERE

We are currently accepting qualified listings for the 2015 IBDC Catalog through April 30, 2015.

Tucson Arizona Author Releases Long Awaited Short Novel Full of Adventure, Intrigue and Romantic Insight on Worldly Religious Beliefs and Practices

Ann Anovitz’s Long Awaited Novel Does Not Disappoint 

Phoenix-based, RICHER Press announced today the release of a new short-novel by Chicago Commercial Real Estate executive and Tucson, Arizona resident Ann Anovitz.

According to Earl Cobb, RICHER Press co-publisher,
“We do not normally work with authors who write novels or general fiction. However, after reading Ann Anovitz’s manuscript, we were pleasantly surprised with the tugging storyline, the enjoyable characters and the insightfulness of the entire work. We are honored that Ann selected us to team with her on this and the other literary projects she is currently engaged in. I truly believe that everyone who reads “Charlie Tale” will share our views and will not be disappointed.”

Here is a little about Ann and her new book. 

Charlie's Tale: The Great Questions of Life and Death is more than a wonderfully written short novel. It is a mystery of adventure & learning…skillfully wrapped around an intriguing dialogue on worldly religious beliefs and practices. Charlie's Tale is Ann Anovitz's thinking about the great questions of life and death. Where did we come from? Who or what made us? Are we, over a great time, becoming more civilized? Will we ever lose or overcome our primordial, Neanderthal instincts? What is God teaching us and what kind of future does he have in store for us? 

Anovitz and a friend studied the Old Testament for over six years and their deep and prolonged discussions give rise to the thoughts delightfully presented in this distinctive and shrewd adventure. Ann Anovitz lives in Tucson, Arizona. She is a long-time Commercial Real Estate executive, avid community volunteer and a skillful writer. 

In addition to
Charlie's Tale, Ann is the author of the Grandma Annie's Stories from the Garden Children's Book Series. The innovative series is designed to be a unique educational reading experience for both English and Spanish speaking children. With a simple 180 degree flip, the child can move from one version of the story to the other. The first title of the series, Cowboy Jose and Pinteroo was released in August 2014. The second book titled, Wigga Poo's Soccer Team, is scheduled to be released in January 2015.

Transforms the Way We Think About Diversity and Leadership

Phoenix, AZ: RICHER Press announced today the August release of a new book by Dr. Fay Cobb Payton which many say has the potential to transform the way we all think about diversity and leadership.

In her new book,
Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton offers a unique and careful examination of who is engaged in digital and social inclusion, who is not and why everyone should be. 

The Foreword for Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing is written by Johnnella E. Butler, Ed.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Spelman College.

Dr. Fay, as she is affectionately called, is currently an Associate Professor of Information Systems at North Carolina State University.

The messages and challenges contained in her engaging and creatively structured book represent over twenty-five years of personal and professional collaboration and observations in both corporate and academic settings.

The new book titled Cowboy José and Pinteroo includes both a fully illustrated English and Spanish version under the same cover. With a simple 180 degree flip, the child can move from one version of the story to the other. This presents a unique and fun learning experience in multiple dimensions. The book is written for young boys and girls from age 5 through 9.

The author, Ann Anovitz, lives in Tucson, Arizona.

They both knew that they had a lot in common. However, the combination of Ann Anovitz's crafting of words and Dave Grimms dramatic skills with color pencils has resulted in a beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated new children's book.

The story of Cowboy José and Pinteroo’s pairing and rodeo adventure is geographically grounded in the Sonoran Desert of North American. This visually magnificent area spans large parts of the Southwestern United States in Arizona and California, and of Northwestern Mexico in Sonora, Baja California and Baja California Sur. The vibrant colored pencil illustrations distinctively bring to life each exciting scene.

This unique and colorful book is designed to allow young children to use their imagination and enjoy the places that reading can take them. The book includes a “Spy Me” page as well as coloring pages to engage both the child and the parent in fun-filled learning activities.

Pillow Talk Consciousness: Intimate Reflections on America's 100 Most Interesting Thoughts and Suspicions Ignites Discussion and Applause

Self-Help and Education writers, Ervin (Earl) Cobb and Dr.Charlotte Grant-Cobb recently announced plans to kick-off  a second book tour which will feature an updated version of their highly acclaimed book, Pillow Talk Consciousness.

PILLOW TALK CONSCIOUSNESS: INTIMATE REFLECTIONS ON AMERICA'S 100 MOST INTERESTING THOUGHTS AND SUSPICIONS is a unique essay on America, its social & political challenges and the power of human consciousness.

This book cleverly illustrates how our birthplace and the level of consciousness we obtain during our lives, eventually frame how we see ourselves, how we see others and how we see our world.

It does this through a thoughtful collection of 100 entertaining, informative and provocative dialogues. Each dialogue is written to reflect commonly held thoughts and suspicions on topics that frame the lives and the conversations of average Americans in the 21st century. All are written with a candor that is expressed by the majority of Americans only in the safety and privacy of their own home, with a trusted partner and wrapped in a momentarily abnormal level of human consciousness.

The topics range from education to family values; from war to politics and from music to motherhood

As I started the process of publishing my book, I investigated and talked to many publishing companies. This journey felt impersonal and dry. From the moment I first spoke to Earl, Richer Press, I knew I had found the person I wanted to publish my book with; I had found my book family. He understood why I wrote my book, along with understanding my vision.  He was able to guide me through the editing and publishing process with compassion, insight, skill, vision and professional advice. He explained each step of the process in an engaging manner, worked diligently with me through each step and helped me give birth to my book. HE CARED. I look forward to the next phase of marketing and know I have a strong, professional Richer Press team in my corner. Every step of my experience with Earl, the Richer Press team and his wife Charlotte has been magical.

“Well, I said this before, but I will say it again I really like how my book turned out and how you and all of "The Richer Team" were able to "read my mind' and help produce exactly what I wanted to for my readers.”

Susan C.,D.M.D

“Thanks!!! It is nice to feel heard and respected for my input. I appreciate your expertise. It is also rewarding to know I have a part in the design and decisions. Yes, team work is great.”

Dr. Nancy R. Harris


Earl is proficient and skilled, yet approachable, communicative and responsive, traits not often found in combination at this level. The expert work he did to transform my manuscript into a book is outstanding. The cover, graphics and professional layout is beyond what I could have imagined and he did it rapidly and on schedule, checking with me at each step. I have referred others to him without reservation and have already used him a second time for a children's book. I expect to hire him again to transform my current manuscript. He does superb work!

Dawn O., M.D.
Knowing where to go with my first book was a puzzle until I got referred to Mr. Earl Cobb. Before reaching out to the RICHER team I read several books and articles on self-publishing. There are various processes available when choosing to go through publishing companies. I must say I am so happy with the work that Mr.Cobb & his extremely professional team put into polishing and publishing my book. I couldn't be more pleased! I am most pleased with the day to day contact that was provided over the less than two month process of producing the finished product! I highly recommend RICHER Press to anyone who is ready to publish! I plan to remain working with RICHER Press with all of my future writing/publishing endeavors.

Latonya S.

This was my first time dealing with a publishing company and I have to say Earl and his staff were great. They showed me the ropes on how to turn my unpolished manuscript into a professional book. They treated me like I was their most important client and Earl was always readily available when I had a question. I would definitely recommend them.
