About The Publisher

Melissa Ann Pollack

“The greater your dream, the more important to have a greater team.” - Melissa Ann Pollack

Publishing a book is a dream that many people have and one that few are able to bring to fruition. In 2018, about one million books will be published, and about half of these will be self-published. Of the self-published, sadly, most will not accomplish the goals originally dreamt of by the author. This is where Renaissance, a boutique publishing company, steps in. We take the best of traditional trade publishing and combine it with the modern advantages of self-publishing.

You have a message. You have a story. And your creativity needs to be supported. You’ve undoubtedly heard that 10% of the work is writing the words; 90% is everything that happens outside the diction and grammar. Your voice deserves the right microphone or, perhaps, a megaphone. I’m here, together with a greater team, to help ensure your goals get met.

Whether you’ve got a fully polished manuscript or a partially developed idea, at Renaissance Publishing we will personally walk with you and make what can seem like an overwhelming journey a pleasant, even fun, process. First time author? Bravo! We work hard and expect no less from you. In fact, it’s part of our job to help bring the best out of you!

Is it easy? If it were, everyone would be a published author. Our job, our worth, comes from working closely to make sure the hard work is smartly performed.

Wisdom + Knowledge + Smart work = Success.

My background is diverse. It includes everything from modeling, pageants, and parenting to registered nursing to entrepreneurship and writing. I personally know what it feels like to have the dream and have learned how to make it happen. Through my journey, I have sorted through the crowds and have found creative, personable people – gems – to create with. Together, we do great things and have fun doing it.

Together with you, we can collectively make your dream come true. (Our dream? To bring about yours!) I invite you to join us! E-mail me now and let’s get you published!

Our Mission is to make the world a better place, one character, one page, one chapter at a time.
