Why Pages & Pie Publishing?

Stories motivate, inspire, and entertain. Fiction stories thrill us and transport us to other dimensions that once existed only in the author's mind.

What do books and pie have in common? Variety. There are hundreds of genres and subgenres of books and hundreds of flavors of pie. Over the years, there’s at least one book and one pie you could say you’ve loved.

Authors write books for their own reasons. The goal of Pages & Pie is for you, an author, to start writing and follow the process to the end. The desired outcome is to see your words in a professionally bound book with your name on it.

Pages & Pie Publishing is an author services company. We will meet you wherever you are in the writing process. We will discuss your “why” in writing a book. We’ll talk about your time frame. We’ll talk about standards. Your book is a representation of you. When you work with Pages & Pie Publishing, your book is also a representation of us. This makes us partners in the publishing process.

Angela Hammond Denny

Owner, Editor, Fiction Writer, Marketing Writer, Formatter

Angela Hammond Denny is the owner of Pages & Pie. She's a wife, a multitasker, and mom, but those are just her roles. She has a degree in professional writing with a minor in creative writing, but that’s just her education. She worked in marketing for over eight years, writing commercial strategy, but that's just her experience. Who is she deep down? She was created to write. Her favorite thing to do as a child was to lose herself in a good book. She read everything she could get her hands on but fell in love with thrillers. Authors like Mary Higgins Clark, Dean R. Koontz, and John Saul changed her life. She knew from age thirteen she wanted to be a writer. So, she started writing.

What Our Authors Are Saying: 

Angela Hammond and her team, Pages and Pie, served as publisher for my recent book, True Tales From Dickerson Park Zoo: There's a Crocodile in the Bathtub. She was very good to work with. She explained to Joey Powell, our Public Relations and Marketing Director, and I how the publishing process would work, what we could expect in terms of timelines, cost, and the services her team would provide. They were very easy to work with and we were pleased with the final product. The cover design was very good, the editing was thorough, and she set up all the details for distribution and payments. We were very happy with her services.

Her knowledge of the publishing industry makes the process easy, and her welcoming attitude makes the entire experience—from manuscript to book in hand—enjoyable.

One of my life goals was to publish a novel – but where do I start? I had a manuscript staring at me on my office floor for years. Being a novice writer and knowing very little about development and editing, I turned to Pages and Pie Publishing Services.

Angela and her staff were helpful the moment we connected. Angela’s dedication to a project is evident. Always available for questions, her team worked tirelessly to assist me in forming, editing and publishing my novel.

The services are honest and the rates were reasonable. If you have an itch to write a book and want some help to get started and see your project transform into a published book, I would highly recommend Pages and Pie Publishing.
