One size does not always fit all and the Pub-Craft Team custom-tailors plans to best suit the individual author and his or her budget! Authors seek more time to write, and this is the inspiration underlying the business. Giving You More Time to Write. In the words of Rick Spencer, writer, consultant and speaker specializing in entrepreneurship, “Rugged individualism has its limits. What could you accomplish if you could spend more time doing what you do best?”
