Case Study: A Journey with the National Park Mystery Series

A Spark of Inspiration
The National Park Mystery series was born from a love of mysteries and travel and a passion for working with children.

Mary Morgan, author of the National Park Mystery series, quickly penned the first manuscript after being challenged by Richard Baldwin, owner of Buttonwood Press, at a 2008 Christian writer’s conference, where authors were challenged to find niche markets. The collaboration between Mary and Richard led to a series that captured young readers’ imaginations nationwide.

Addressing Challenges
Working under the guidance of Buttonwood Press, Mary printed her books with Color House Graphics, who provided timely production and high-quality printing that she and her publisher were thrilled with.

After Richard’s passing in 2019, Mary wanted to continue the series independently, but she had little experience with the printing process. CHG’s team stepped in with compassionate support and practical assistance, guiding Mary through the technical aspects of book production. This included advising her on how to get new ISBNs, handling typesetting issues, and ensuring quality control.

A Note from Mary Morgan
“I have recommended CHG many times, telling everyone what great service we have received for 13 years. We tell people how friendly the staff has always been, from the reception desk (with candy nearby) to those who help load the books into our car. When we started our publishing company, the CHG team worked with us from start to finish to get our books printed. I am blessed that I can sell with confidence because of the workmanship of the books I’ve printed with CHG. We love the customer service and the quality of the books.”
