Inspiration for Sophie Publishing House, Inc. came subsequent to Owner r Karina Schmitt, meeting Danish WW2 veteran, Ole Bjørnsen (1919-2018), in December, 2017. They decided to write and publish Ole Bjørnsen's memoirs from when the Germans attacked Denmark in 1940 and occupied the country until 1945 - stories he used to tell his family and friends throughout his life.
At Sophie Publishing House, Inc., our mission is to shed light on people's amazing lives and historical events through autobiographies, memoirs, biographies, history books, and current events.
Sophie Publishing House, Inc. is a family oriented business owned by Karina Schmitt. Because Karina Schmitt's three children are Danish Americans, we will strive to give special attention to writers with Danish or American backgrounds. Family values, identity, and patriotism will also play a role in literature released from Sophie Publishing House. Stories related to Denmark or the United States, nonfiction as well as fiction, such as historic fiction, have our interest.
We will publish in English and Danish and offer proofreading, editing, and marketing services. Read more about our services in Services for Authors below.
