“Every thing must have a beginning … and that beginning must be linked to something that went before.” -Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”

When John Riley and Anita Richardson founded Morgan Reynolds almost twenty years ago, their hope was to produce nonfiction books that would both supplement middle school and high school curricula and spark the interest of young adult readers.

According to Readfaster.com, “Out-of-school reading habits of students has shown that even as little as fifteen minutes a day of independent reading can expose students to more than a million words of text in a year.”

Even Dr. Seuss knew what kind of opportunities reading could present, “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

But the publishing industry is changing.

If there is one thing for certain, it is that change, no matter what industry you are in, will always be a constant. For publishing, never has that been more true. Economic ups and downs, advancements in technology, and changes in what teens, the most fickle of readers, are interested in are just some of the things publishers have to consider.

As a small independent publishing company, we want to use this blog to share who we are, what we publish, what our philosophy is, what events we will be attending, and how we are adapting to the constant changes in the publishing world.

We will be posting things that pertain to our company and our industry. So stay tuned and thanks for reading!
