The face of publishing today…
In recent years, the book industry’s landscape has changed dramatically. There has been an explosive growth in self-publishing, massive commercialization of old book content, custom publishing, and more. Consumers are driving the experience in new and exciting directions, redefining the industry in bold new ways, allowing us to soon realize the goal of getting books into the hands of every reader in the world!

The reading experience now offers new delivery platforms and publishing models. We’re no longer tied down to the “printed” matter. E-books are read on smart phones, tablets, and dedicated e-book readers; small net computers, traditional laptops, and PCs, just to name a few. We can translate content not only into the reader’s native language, but in that reader’s format of choice, be it Large Print, Braille, DAISY, or interactive formats that readers can manipulate themselves to navigate between text and audio.

Readers rule the day…
By making reading easier and more accessible than ever before, we can better serve readers who may have been emarginated—those with learning differences or dyslexia; the blind, visually impaired, or those with macular degeneration; or those who simply want to read material in an alternate format. Be it in print or in electronic edition, we can now provide the format of choice to every reader, wherever he or she may be. BYBook Publishers is at the forefront of this new and exciting book publishing revolution!

A great story, elegantly told...
Style of reading and modality of delivery aside, one thing hasn’t changed: it’s still all about the CONTENT! A great story elegantly told and professionally edited will always be in style. At BYBook Publishers, we excel in producing beautiful content-rich works.
From concept development to targeted marketing of the final product, Bettie Youngs Book Publishers helps talented writers produce significant works—that regardless of the style or format the readers finds most appealing, the content itself, is an experience that is rewarding, enriching and motivating.

Bettie Youngs Book Publishers brings readers a carefully selected line of works about fascinating people and their remarkable life journeys. Our authors offer narratives of powerful and insightful experiences that have allowed them to create new paths in their lives and new processes to better get to the heart of issues we all have in common: wanting to live authentically—more fully, creatively, zestfully, and abundantly.

Books, ePubs, Films, Audio books...
Our mission is to produce life inspiring works that aspire to reawaken our passion for life and reaffirm our faith in the indomitability of the human spirit. It is our goal to bring these beautiful works to readers everywhere, in whichever format they wish to access them.

Working with BYBooks, and Bettie in particular, has been a most rewarding experience. But it has been more. I wrote my book, and she demanded MORE. And in so doing, it has, literally, changed my life. This experience has been so powerful that I will be planning to change course with how I spend time with my patients. Bettie, thank you for showing me that gift and the universe brought in the opportunity to practice it therefore being able to alleviate the suffering of many. You were right: in writing a memoir, one of the lives I have changed, is my own! —Carolle Jean-Murat, M.D., author, Voodoo in My Blood: A Healer's Journey from Surgeon to Shaman

I have been most fortunate to work with a team of consummate professionals at BYBook Publishers: Bettie Youngs herself, a first-rate publisher, a wise and generous mentor, a perfect advocate, and her outstanding staff, especially editor Mark Clements, who went above and beyond. Thank you to all at Bettie Youngs Books. The honor is mine. —Jane Congdon, author, It Started With Dracula: The Count, My Mother, and Me

My tenure with BYBook Publishers was—IS—an awesome experience.

BYBook Publishers is simply an extraordinary Publishing House. Charmaine Hammond, author, On Toby's Terms, and, the Toby for Kids series

I so enjoy serving as senior editor for many of the BYB Book titles.

I cannot in words even begin to describe this end product of working with BYBook Publishers. First of all I have to say working with editor Christine Belleris was one of the greatest experiences I have had with with this book. She soon got the total essence of my story. She managed to balance what is an obvious talent in editing with her incredible intuition on how to maintain the integrity of a personal memoir. Thank you Bettie, your refusal to except NOTHING but the best. I am so very very touched and proud of where you have taken my story, putting a finished polish on this I didn't even see coming and maintaining the raw story. It has been such a pleasure. —Christine Ducommun, author, Living with Multiple Personalities

And as an author, I felt so very valued. —Aura Imbarus, author, Out of the Transylvania Night, a Pulitzer-Prize entry
