About Us

Reading is Fun

“We specialize in working closely with clients to further develop their stories into complete and interesting books.”

LifeReloaded Specialty Publishing is a boutique publishing company located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We believe that creating your book should be a positive experience — not a chore.

Our specialty is working closely with our clients to develop their stories and materials into complete and interesting books.

Our clients include:

  • Traditional authors looking for royalty publishing organizations such as golf clubs, fishing clubs and social clubs who want to create a book about their history for private sale to their members
  • Businesses wanting to create a book as a gift for their own customers, or celebrate an anniversary of their founding
  • Families who want to create books such as WWII memoirs, legacy books such as family histories, poems, and journals that are passed down to become heirlooms

“Creating your book should be a positive experience — not a chore.”

Most of our authors are first-timers. They typically arrive with cardboard boxes of “stuff.” They’re looking for someone who can assist them in telling their story and creating their book.

Our associates include professional editors, designers, illustrators, photographers, and other specialists that we engage to meet the specific needs of each project.

LifeReloaded’s customer service goal is simple. We are committed to providing our customers with total satisfaction. Every time.

Faith Reese Martin

Time-traveling teens Max Myers and Jinx MacKenzie are called back to a time when America is being torn apart by the issues of slavery in the 1850s. As they are caught up in the shadowy world of the Underground Railroad, they run into some amazing characters from history, and follow the ghost train backwards heading into the Deep South. Using a quilt, a vision, and each other, Max and Jinx find themselves on the ultimate adventure that involves famous people who helped others gain their freedom at all costs.

Faith Reese Martin weaves together history, mystery, time travel, action, and suspense — from the slave ships that sold men, women and children like cattle, to the ultimate fighters who sacrificed a great deal and risked their lives in the fight for freedom.

Examples of our Contract Publishing Projects include anniversary editions for companies that are used as gifts for their clients; histories of organizations that are used for sale to members only; and family histories that are created as family heirlooms.

Many of the Contract Publishing books are produced in limited numbers of 50-500 copies and many also feature special Deluxe editions with exclusive features that can be sold at a premium for fundraising or as special gifts for high-value sponsors.

World War II Scrapbook

Robert L. Thompson

“I am grateful to my mother who kept all of my letters from two years of training in the South, six months of combat in Normandy, Brittany and the Ardennes and another six months as a POW in Germany. They, along with the many notes on scraps of any paper I could find, described events as they happened… and that’s what this book is all about. It’s not a history of World War II, it’s just a SCRAPBOOK of my own experiences and memories of those three years.”
