In January 2001, Tony Rose, Publisher/CEO, Amber Communications Group, Inc. established Quality Press, a special service-book packaging imprint for authors who wanted to self-publish their books instead of waiting to gain an interest from mainstream publishers.
Tony Rose, Publisher/CEO, of Phoenix, Arizona based Amber Communications Group, Inc. (ACGI) and the Executive Director of The African American Pavilion at BookExpo America began Quality Press in 2000 in order to accommodate authors who wished to self-publish their books. Amber Books Publishing, the corporation’s first imprint, was founded in 1998 and has become established as the nation’s largest African-American publisher of self-help and career-guide book titles written by and for African Americans. Mr. Rose responded to the needs of the growing market of self-publishers and placed the Quality Press division under the direction of Yvonne Rose who is also an Associate Publisher for Amber Books and Director of Quality Press.
