Louisvillian Andrew Toy was tired of his book manuscript being rejected by agents and publishers, so he decided to launch his own publishing company, Endever Publishing Studios.
The first Endever releases came out in October, and include Toy’s oft-rejected book, “These Great Effects,” along with “A Deathly Compromise,” written by Coral Rivera. So far, Toy has signed on seven authors to Endever, and he has a schedule of book releases through 2017.
Inspired by film production company Pixar, Toy describes the publishing company as a “collective” in which authors will edit each other’s work and cross-promote in their respective markets to help the company move forward.
“The spirit of Endever,” Toy told InsiderLouisville, “is we keep pushing forward.”
