Abbott Press Releases Inaugural Title 'Real Men Can Wear Pink'

Self-Publishing Alliance of Writer’s Digest and Author Solutions, Inc., helping writers improve their work and realize their dreams of getting published.


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - July 08, 2011 - Abbott Press—the self-publishing division of Writer’s Digest—has released its inaugural title, Real Men Can Wear Pink, by Shawn Hutchinson of Buford, Ga. The motivational book calls for men to appreciate life and to influence other young men to make a difference.

“This project is my first published book—it is a sense of accomplishment—however, it will become a great success when lives are transformed by the message within the book,” Hutchinson said. “The level of urgency that I have to want to impact my community and society somewhat overshadows the thought of ‘Wow! I wrote a book!’ It is a great feeling.”

Abbott Press, which was established in January of 2011 as a strategic partnership between Writer’s Digest and Author Solutions, Inc., is named in honor of Richard K. Abbott, the legendary Writer’s Digest editor and is devoted to helping writers improve their craft and achieve their publishing goals.

“Books like Shawn’s are what we had in mind when we started Abbott Press. We wanted to create a platform for writers to become authors and to bring their stories and messages to readers,” said Keith Ogorek, ASI senior vice president of marketing.
