Our Process

We believe that success starts with selectivity. As such, our publishing process has four major components.

Consultation and Evaluation

After submitting a book pitch, we’ll arrange an interview with a prospective author. During this critical meeting, an evaluation will be made to determine the following:

  • Does the manuscript reflect Principia’s six core values?
  • Would the author be a valuable addition to the Principia Community?
  • What would the manuscript require to meet our strict quality and publishing standards?
  • What is the target market, and how would the author impact that market?

Publishing Process

Authors that are invited to be part of the Principia community will then be directly involved as we go through the publishing process, including editing, custom cover design, interior design, and final proofing.

Community Support

The concept of the Principia community allows authors to share ideas, experiences, and marketing opportunities. These resources include author meetings, web development opportunities, and classes for blog writing and how to use social media. Our community provides encouragement and support as you work your way through this new and exciting chapter in your life.


Successful authors recognize that being a new author is very similar to starting a new business. Now that we have a completed manuscript, we must identify our target market, how we’ll get the product in front of customers, and how we convince them to purchase. We work with each author to help them develop a unique marketing plan.

The Search for DB Cooper: How We Cracked the Case and Why Some People Don’t Want it Solved


It is a rare occasion when all the puzzle pieces of a criminal investigation fit so cleanly and a decades-old cold case gets solved. In this instance, it just happens to be one of the most notorious criminal cases in commercial aviation history. I was fortunate to have met many of the credible witnesses in this case, I saw a wide range of the physical evidence, and I have had extensive unvarnished conversations with the author and primary key investigators Joe Koenig. I believe beyond any reasonable doubt that Walter Reca was in fact DB Cooper. Mark Twain’s comment that “truth is stranger than fiction” could not have a better application than the life of Walter Reca. The evidence presented speaks for itself. The only thing left is for the intelligence community to review the facts, admit to the facts and declare it “case solved.” The implications here are significant for governments around the globe.
