Our Publishing Company

Word First Publishing is a Hybrid Book Publishing Company (traditional and personalized publishing services) acquired by Brilliant Stories Inc., located in Los California

The acquisition of Word First Publishing Company by BSI is part of our content development strategy for expanding our media and print capabilities across multiple platforms. 

To meet the ever-growing demand by our major Hollywood studio clients, who continue to adapt novels, comic books and graphic novels to films and a growing demand among film writers who want their scripts adapted to books, BSI merged with WFP, a privately held publishing company specializing in ghost-writing manuscripts and publishing books for celebrities, politicians, sports athletes, public figures, dignitaries and business executives.


The combined resources and experience of both our publishing and film divisions allows us to provide all of our clients beginning-to-end professional personalized attention to their manuscript writing, adaptation and publishing needs.

Both WFP and BSI now offer published and non-published writers/authors seeking to publish their book the same professional services and attention to writing, editing manuscript and book publishing needs.
