About Us

Spine Press & Post LLC

Spine Press & Post is a toolkit for all authors and publishers. It is a one-stop resource for information, referrals, and guidance on how to tackle the self-publishing process step by step. 

Spine Press & Post started as a complete publishing and marketing house so it is familiar with the ins and outs of every step in the publishing process. It created complete publishing solutions from the beginning stages of formatting to a comprehensive marketing strategy. After assisting several authors with their projects, the business grew and developed a team. Evolving to address the highest demand, Spine Press & Post founders transitioned from providing services to educating authors, publishers, and artists about the process and connecting clients to reliable providers. 


Formed as a limited liability corporation in 2017, founding partners Melissa Koons and Thomas A. Fowler bring their unique skill-sets and background to combine two fields of expertise for one solution: a knowledgeable resource and toolkit for the publishing process.

Meet the Team

Melissa Koons

Melissa Koons has always had a passion for books and creative writing. It may have started with Berenstain Bears By Stan and Jan Berenstain, but it didn’t take long for authors like Lucy Culliford Babbit, Tolkien, and Robert Jordan to follow. From a young age she knew she wanted to share her love for stories with the world.

She has written and published one novel, multiple short stories, and poetry. She has a BA in English and Secondary Education from the University of Northern Colorado.

A former middle and high school English teacher, she now devotes her career to publishing, editing, writing, and tutoring hoping to inspire and help writers everywhere achieve their goals. When she's not working, she's taking care of her two turtles and catching up on the latest comic book franchise. 

Publications Director

Thomas A. Fowler

At the age of 11, Thomas A. Fowler saw Jurassic Park. It was all nerdy as hell from there. Especially when he stuck around for the end credits and saw “Based on the novel by Michael Crichton.” He went straight from the movie theater, walked down the mall to a Walden Books.

Since then, he’s written movies, plays, short-stories and books. While he sticks primarily to science-fiction, he dabbles elsewhere. He holds an MBA in Marketing from Regis University and was a former Content Creator at a full-service ad agency in Denver, Colorado. Now, he devotes that skill set to a freelance career and to helping authors live their dream of getting published. 

Somewhere, between writing and advertising, he tries to be a loving husband and responsible father.
