For as long as she can remember, Amanda Jo Ketchings dreams of a successful career as a fashion designer in New York City. On a scale of one to ten, chances of seeing her dream come true rings in on a big fat zero. The same odds hold true for her chance of snagging a date to the prom. Or next week’s basketball game. Heck, even if she offers to pay for the year’s biggest blockbuster movie, chances are she would watch it alone.
Amanda Jo’s dad owns the local funeral home. Her mom is the least sophisticated person in the Universe and, on top of that, Amanda Jo inherited her mom’s frizzy hair and thunder thighs. How fair is that?
With zero friends, Amanda Jo spends a lot of time alone until Elle moves to town and that is when everything skids downhill fast!
Pixel and Pen Studios started as Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to the concept that authors, and readers, deserved more. More representation, more diversity, more unique storylines. They needed a publisher who, as an author herself, would treat an author's work with the same dedication and passion as the author did. So, she openened Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to giving an outlet to unique voices and unheard stories. Then, at her very booksigning, the author met an artist. He was the owner and creative genius behind TLJOnline. This artist started as a fan, became a friend, then her cover artist, and eventually her husband. Eventually, though, as they merged their lives, it only made sense that they would merge their businesses. Thus, Pixel and Pen Studios was born, a place where authors and artists all over the world are celebrated and where their unique voices and styles come to life. We are more than a publishing house, we are a family of wierdos, geeks, and creatives working together and supporting each other. And what we produce is more than books are art, they are gateways into another world. We are so glad that you decided to join us! Pull up a chair, pour yourself some coffee, tea, whiskey (we don't judge) and take a look at all we have to offer!
