A Small North Carolina Publisher Seeking the Best Writers in the South

 Skip Crayton and Bill Benners founded McBryde Publishing in 2004 to offer an alternative to those excellent writers not landing an agent to represent them. It was a simple idea. Write a good book and we'll take it on. We still stand behind that theorem as we seek the best writers in the south. At this time we are seeking new manuscripts for publication.  




Letting Go by Deborah Wallis

Letting Go by Deborah Wallis is the story of three generations of deeply flawed, incredibly strong women who remain connected in life and death by blood, love and healing.

Alexandra Crenshaw stumbles across a treasure trove of her mother’s old letters written to CiCi Dolan, Alex’s grandmother who died almost four decades earlier. Every year on Mother’s Day and CiCi’s birthday, Livvy Montgomery shares her joys, sorrows, successes and failures with the mother she never stopped missing.

Laden with family history and secrets, the letters heal some of Alex’s old wounds while opening brand new ones. With time running out, both women must struggle with the truth. 

“Wallis gives us an intimate look into the lives of three generations of North Carolina women,” Jason Frye, founder of Teakettle Junction Productions, reviews. “Through the joy and loss of a lifetime, we learn what it means to hold on to life and what it’s like to let it go.”
