The Founder and President, Ms. Donna L. Quesinberry resides in the J.F. Cole House, which is located in the Historic District with her son, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor. The J.F. Cole House was bought at auction June of 2017, it had been auctioned a few occasions with “no” purchasers meeting the seller’s (Housing and Urban Development) bottom-line. Thankfully, the Quesinberry – Hatcher purchase met HUD criteria and renovations brought the home to more current standards.

What does DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. do for authors?
As an author’s title representative, DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. reviews the author’s query and synopsis. Upon approval, a title agreement is prepared for the author review, any agreed upon adjustments are executed and then signatures are executed. Once this occurs, a press release is presented to industry regarding representation of the impending title. From there, standard book development and production is committed with copyright and registrations taking place. There is no cost for representation, which may take a year or longer from acceptance and signing of the agreement to production of the book for retail sale. Q states, “We are not a dump and pump entity – books go through layers of development and even at the time of release – I often feel we could have taken more time, but there is a point where you just need to let the title leap in faith.”
