From the Blog






    Redbrush is uniquely positioned to help independent authors succeed. We offer straight-forward instruction and expert guidance in a reality-based environment without any BS. In our experience, informed authors have a far greater chance of achieving the levels of success they envision.


  • EXPECT TO WORK WITH THE BEST. Our team has decades of experience in several interconnected disciplines and industries, combined to help authors publish and sell better books.
  • EXPECT TO BE FULLY ENGAGED IN YOUR INDIE PUBLISHING EXPERIENCE. You will ultimately be in charge of your publishing journey but you'll have a professional team with you at every step.
  • EXPECT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BOOK PROJECT THAN YOU EXPECTED. The more you know and the better you articulate your goals and audiences, the more confident you'll be as you progress through the various steps of indie publishing.
  • EXPECT TO BE YOUR OWN PUBLISHER, control your book's course through the process, pay for only the services you require, and — as the publisher — earn the publisher's portion of your sales profits and author's royalties.

    “Working with Phil Whitmarsh was the next best thing to having a big NYC publisher publish and promote my book. He knows every aspect of the book production/promotion business, and uses his brilliant marketing ingenuity to bore deeply into ways to find readers for ‘this’ particular book. I cannot imagine what it would have been like NOT to have him guiding me as I independently published my book. I particularly valued his humanity and humor, keen ears and eyes, and great ideas.”

    “I know Real Estate and I know how to build successful salespeople. But I didn’t know anything about publishing my book. Phil Whitmarsh empowered and challenged me to tie myself to the helm of my publishing voyage. He was a competent navigator—wonderful, polite, gentle—and held my hand through the entire process. He helped me turn my first manuscript into the book I’d only imagined. I talked with numerous self-publishing companies before I spoke with Phil Whitmarsh. Nobody came close to his experience or his ability to help me confidently be my own publisher. He’s in a league all his own.”

    “I had spent a lot of time in writing my book, and wanted to independently publish it. I was looking for publishing support that could provide professional knowledge and expertise, as well as personal sensitivity to my unique autobiographical information. From our very first contact, Phil Whitmarsh proved perfect for my project. He demonstrated genuine empathy as he guided me through this process. From manuscript review and editorial services to layout, design, and preparing to print to my own high standards, Phil has been knowledgeable, efficient and exceptionally responsive and supportive. I couldn't have done this without him!”

    “Phil Whitmarsh was my publishing ‘Book Coach’ when I published SALT CREEK JUSTICE. He led me through a complicated and unfamiliar process and made it look easy. Soon I was familiar with ISBNs, copyrights, barcodes, .mobi files, epub files, proofreading techniques, publishing protocols, uploading manuscripts, novel marketing ideas, book and cover design, and so on. Phil's a publishing pro. He held my hand when I needed help and cut my learning curve to almost zero. It felt like he was working for me and helped me publish a superior book product. My book’s doing great!”

    "Redbrush helped me achieve my goal of writing my first book. There are a lot of things involved in the process. The book The Compass by Phil Whitmarsh helped answer the questions that were standing in my way. I would recommend using the team at Redbrush for indie-printing. They have the know how and ambition to help your dreams come true.”

    “My wanting to publish a book of my experiences in work camp mission ministry was solidified after having a lengthy phone conversation with Phil Whitmarsh of Redbrush. Because of his style and approach, he really made me feel that I could do this. Redbrush folks walked me through the process, was extremely patient as there were many transitions in my life going on; and, were more than just support as I ventured into the world of publication. I do have to say that there are many hoops that one has to jump through in order to be their own publisher; I am very happy I connected with Redbrush and, especially Phil, for now my dream has come true.”
