About Shelter Cove Publishing

Mim McConnellMission

  • To make your life easier.


  • I make your life easier by creating your visions in your website and all your collatoral business materials, with the look that expresses your business. With my in-house photography, I can easily customize your business cards, brochures, website, stationery, marketing and advertising tools, your unique, stand-alone advertising, and more. Why use impersonal stock images when you can be in the picture?
  • Photography services are available for all kinds of products.
  • Visit the Services page for more information.


  • Shelter Cove Publishing began in 1998 when my husband, Mike, was looking for a publisher for his first non-fiction book, Hand Troller, and I was looking for a way to sell my photo notecards. We started out with a laptop on a 30' sailboat and now I conduct the business from an office in downtown Sitka.
  • The name comes from a favorite quiet cove on Kuiu Island in Southeast Alaska. The logo image was made from a photograph. The simplicity of design reflects one of my design goals and its serenity is my favorite state of being. My hope is that you will find me a resource that can help bring serenity to your life through meeting your design needs.
