Publishing and Media
The target audience are successful authors or prospective authors who would rather retain control over their work than go with a traditional publishing house, but don't want the amateur result that tends to come out of self-publishing. They want to work with pros without giving up 87.5% of their work.
Most competitors are either big, traditional publishing houses (boring, behind the times, with a model based on giving little value to the creative) or new self-publishing startups (amateur, confusing). We have the best of both worlds (professional, simple, fast adapting, focused on the creative).
I think this would look good as a dark (probably black) theme. The gold in the current logo is a nice touch too.
I don't think this is the kind of site that should have a lot of bright colors.
Professional, suave, clean, focused.
