At Paws and Claws Publishing, LLC, we want to publish books that give children and teenagers—as well as the adults who read to them, mentor them, guide them, and teach them—the kinds of books that will influence them to make a positive difference in our world and to be successful, well-rounded, compassionate human beings.

     In the publishing world, smaller can be better. Yes, Paws and Claws Publishing is a small company. We accept books from first-time authors as well as established authors. We don’t expect every author to write sequels. We work one-on-one with each author from the time we first contact him or her. We don’t create cookie-cutter books. Every book is unique, tailored to the author’s story and message and desires, and enticing to readers and book buyers alike.

     Every author earns membership to an exclusive club: the Paws and Claws Publishing family. You see, once we commit to an author, we remain committed to him or her. We promote and market every author and their book(s) in perpetuity. Our books won’t go out of print. Each author’s family membership won’t expire.  

     We have several advantages over large publishing houses. We care passionately about books. We always have, and we always will. We grew up reading, reading, and reading. We couldn’t devour enough books. All kinds of books. (MORE)

Paws and Claws Publishing, LLC, would like to announce that  

Westie Tails—Meet Two Little Westies  by Cindy W. Hollingworth
has won the  Maxwell Medallion in the Children’s Books category of the  
Dog Writers Association of America 2016 Writing Competition.


The award was presented at the Writing Competition Awards Luncheon on Sunday, February 12, 2017, in New York City. Cindy Hollingsworth won in the Children’s Books category (Category 43). In her book, Cindy crafted a lively, entertaining poem about her loyal, dependable companions Watson and Bill. They are her West Highland white terriers and have been her favorite friends for years. She also included ways that faithful canine companions provide comfort and unconditional love to their owners. As Cindy wrote, their “personality, love, and devotion rank at the very top.” Underlying the author’s enchanting rhyming text are gentle reminders of ways that responsible pet owners take care of their pets.

This is the first time a book published by Paws and Claws Publishing, LLC, has been submitted for a DWAA award.
