What Makes Orange Hat different?

  • Personable. When you first call Orange Hat, you will be speaking with one of the owners, not an automated machine or a customer service representative overseas. In fact, throughout your project you will be speaking with either Shannon, Jeremy, Bridget, Jenny, or Terri. We are your personal publishing team of experts, ready to make your story come to life!
  • Quality. We have high standards and will consistently produce a quality product. Many publishing companies will accept any submission, even if the manuscript is filled with errors and spelling mistakes. At Orange Hat, each manuscript goes through a selection process in order to ensure we are only publishing a high quality story. Be proud of what you put your name on – we are.
