Who Are We?

The Founding of OWS Ink, LLC

OWS Ink, LLC was originally founded by a group of friends who wanted to make an impact in the world of indie and hybrid authors and publishers. The company was originally founded in October of 2016 by Amanda Mabry, Stephanie Ayers, and Wendy Strain. OWS Ink, LLC has had tremendous growth and expansion over the last several years. This has included building up a fantastic team of artists, authors, writers, and more.

Our Write Side Mission Statement:

Our mission at OWS Ink, LLC is to build and support a resource-filled community of writers, authors, editors, and publishers, connecting them to readers worldwide with author platforms built on ethical sales practices and best marketing practices; providing solid education for each.

Keeping both authors and OWS team members as the highest priority has remained constant. With that in mind, OWS Ink shifted into a slightly more corporate model adopting a board of directors and polishing up their business practices.

The Expansion of OWS Ink, LLC

Our Write Side has now expanded its offerings to include OWS Chrysalis, our one-stop service department for all author needs, no matter how big or small. As a fully registered and licensed small publishing house, operating as OWS Ink, we also operate our own online bookstore filled with books we have published.

What was once just a spark of an idea has transformed into OWS Ink, LLC, a company that will continue to grow and supports the writers we love so much. We are so happy to be open for business and to have you all with us on this journey of words and visions. We look forward to reading your submissions and making your dreams become a reality.

So, now that you’ve met us, feel free to look around. Stick around for a while, and let Our Write Side become Your Write Side, too!
