Woman-owned and Locally Grown

Simplex Publishing is a woman-owned local business based in Redondo Beach, California.

Our owner Heidi Butzine is a best-selling author, entrepreneur, and localista. She has first-hand experience with every aspect of the writing and publishing process from concept proposal, writing, layout/design to book signings – having done it all on her own.

She’s written several books that have been published through indie houses and self-publishing channels. Her most recent book, Shop Local: A Practical Pain-Free Guide to Shopping with Purpose, is part of her personal mission to get more people to support local businesses everywhere and strengthen the communities where they work and live. She runs several of her own businesses and works with organizations based around her desire to help small businesses, aspiring authors and entrepreneurs succeed.
