Izzard Ink: Helping authors tell their stories since 2013


Izzard Ink Publishing was founded to connect self-publishing authors with the tools, support, and veteran industry talent they need to succeed on the same level as traditionally published bestsellers. Izzard has grown from that initial idea to a business that has sold over 1,200,000 books, with a client list that has sold over 45 million books. Their success was accomplished through attention to detail, uncompromising quality, and delivering exceptional personalized client service with the best people in publishing. Izzard is developing technology solutions using AI and machine learning to streamline and optimize the publishing process—not just for Izzard, but to revolutionize the industry. Through promotion and marketing of their books, Izzard authors have been featured on Fox News and C-Span’s Book TV, and in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other leading publications throughout the country. Izzard has collaborated with ALLi, the Alliance of Independent Authors, and received an “Excellent” rating for its services on its watchdog list. In 2022, they were named the 14th fastest growing company in the Rocky Mountain Region on Inc’s Regionals list.
