About Tabby House
Tabby House was founded in 1990 by Jim and Linda Salisbury to publish Linda's second book, Read My Lips: No New Pets!
The production brought an honorable mention in the National Association of Independent Publishers new-book contest that year, and requests for help from other self-publishers.
They are the authors of Smart Self-Publishing: An author’s guide to producing a marketable book, now in its third edition.
Tabby House’s packaging business has grown in scope and stature ever since and we have produced nearly 400 titles for our clients in that time.
Jim brings to Tabby House his business expertise, editing skills, and leadership in the publishing field as past-president of the Florida Publishers Association.
Linda’s professional career includes journalism, writing, editing, public relations, reviewing books and marketing.
Together they share their advice to authors and publishers through seminars and consultations.
In addition to FPA, they are members of the Independent Book Publishers Association and are on the board of experts of the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors.
Tabby House is the publisher of the multiple award-winning Bailey Fish Adventure Series for boys and girls, ages 8 to 12. Each book in this contemporary series, written by Linda Salisbury, contains nonfiction and historical elements as well as the story line. Topics include Jamestown, Civil and Revolutionary war facts, gold mining, Thomas Jefferson’s inventions and food recipes and more. Each book has discussion questions and suggestions for further reading. Learn more about this well-received series at www.baileyfishadventures.com.
In addition to her children's series, Tabby House has published
Mother's: A novel of hoarding, friending and mischief, and, But You Don't Look Funny (a collection of humor).
Tabby House is located at Lake Anna, Virginia, in the central part of the state, about an hour from Fredericksburg, Charlottesville and Richmond. The Salisburys enjoy using their pontoon boat on the lake, where the Blue Ridge Mountains are visible in the distance. Elderly cats share office chairs and computer desks.
