About Us

Who We Are

We are a small, independent publisher in Solana Beach, California. We write, edit, and publish in Southern California—San Diego, Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties—and virtually worldwide. We provide editing, layout, design, and digital conversion services to publishers and authors, running the gamut from proofreading and agent queries to full-workflow publishing assistance.

Our Portfolio

We have published 10 adult and children's fiction and nonfiction titles under the Atlas Publishing imprint. In addition, we have edited more than 85 nonfiction books and 400 journal articles, mostly in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), finance, economics, business/management, and real estate. Writing projects have included book marketing blurbs, back cover copy, cover design, search engine and inventory system metadata, music reviews, RFPs, credit memorandums, and website and SEO optimization content.

Satisfied Clients

  • I highly recommend Brent Tharp and Atlas Publishing for your editing and book review needs. Brent is forthright, knowledgeable, and pulls no punches when it comes to strengthening a work in progress. He says what needs to be said, and either delivers on time or remains in communication should problems or issues arise. As writers, we oftentimes need to hear things about our work that we might not want to accept, but Brent Tharpe does a commendable and professional job of delivering this news. His knowledge of the publishing business is also strong. My first novel, Mad Car, is now ready to be forwarded on to agents and publishers due to the editing efforts provided by Brent Tharp and Atlas Publishing. Recommended.

  • Perfection cannot be rushed. Well worth the wait for the finished product. My completed book, "Chasing Coyotes - Accounts of Urban Crises" far exceeded all of my preconceived expectations and we are very excited to see what the end results in total sales will be. Thank you for a job well done.


  • Brent was tasked with editing the text of a city's comprehensive plan, as well as laying out text and graphics in InDesign. He did an incredible job with technical editing, but also found a unifying voice and style in a document that was written by many writers. The resulting document was clean and much more easy to read and navigate than its previous iteration. I am very happy with the result.


  • Brent did a fantastic job in editing and assisting me on a doctoral project! Thank you Brent!


  • Brent started as the editor for a guide I had written and then helped me with the publishing process also. He was awesome help! And affordable too.
