About Us

On-Word Bound Books LLC is a small, independent publishing & media company committed to producing quality products for niche markets. On-Word Bound Books works closely with their authors in order to produce the highest quality product possible.

Co-owners, Sara Duke and David Devere founded On-Word Bound Books in 2003. They worked with Karen McTavish to produce one book per year with her from 2004-2008. The next book OWBB took on was The Yamas & Niyamas ~ Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele, published in 2009. Custom Curves by Karen McTavish was released in April, 2011, and in May 2014 they came out with Mastering the Art of McTavishing 2nd Edition ~ Expanded & Revised.

David and Sara are very pleased with all of the books. They feel the content and design are top quality and the retail price can't be beat. At this point, The Yamas & Niyamas ~ Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice, is OWBB's only active title and has sold over 100,000 copies.

Producing books doesn't keep Dave and Sara completely busy so they are always dreaming up new ideas to continue to support themselves and their business.

Sara is an ERYT500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) and has a passion for Restorative Yoga and Deep Relaxation. See her website, Do Restorative Yoga, blog, or facebook page for more information.

David enjoys history, culture, food and wine. These interests led him to earn a Certified Specialist of Wine accreditation through the Society of Wine Educators in 2012. His wine education column, "Wine Savvy," can be found at the Duluth News Tribune.

For a few years David and Sara guided tours on the Canals of France, combining their love of travel, yoga, and wine to offer relaxing, fun, and educational vacations.

Now, they are on to a new adventure: living aboard a 53 foot ketch-rigged sailboat in the Pacific Northwest. You can follow them via their website, S.V. Alcyon.com or on Facebook, Facebook/SV Alcyon.
