Welcome to Velocity Publishing Group

Here at Velocity, our mission is to help authors publish their original, creative work. The idea for Velocity Publishing Group, Inc. was conceived in 2008 when a team of writers joined forces to form their own publishing company that caters to the needs of authors and the readers, rather than a corporate machine consumed by volume and profits.
