How I can help you

Sheri Hauser was raised in the Northwest and went on to become an ICU Nurse working in Critical ICU for 30 years. During her days off, she began to write and published her first book in 2005. Continuing to write and seeing it was difficult to find a publisher, she opted to start her own publishing company. She studied diligently for three years, taking web design at UNLV, learning the InDesign Suite and all aspects of book publishing available. There are no formal schools which incorporate everything needed to become a book publisher, so she dove in and took whatever courses were needed. Over the course of 17 years, Glorybound Publishing has published over 600 books in 9 languages. At the start of her business, books were published and printed using large sheet printers. She has tracked the industry and become a leader in direct publishing of books straight on-line making them available to the international market within days—rather than months. Sheri has seen the gap between web-site development and publishing books shorten to the point that, these days, she embeds the data within the book which will be needed for readers to search for it on line.

Over the years she has become an expert in branding, developing a professional image and setting up a stable on-line presence as she has done it over and over for her professional authors. Many of the same principles used to assist professional authors to ‘get their name out there’ can be utilized for individuals starting a company. These elements include branding, developing a web presence and promoting through social networks. This is what she brings to SCORE.
