Before conglomerates gobbled up publishing companies, print media was the sole avenue for expression. Dedicated editors who believed in a writer's potential worked closely with that writer to develop their fiction. Their belief was that with enough guidance, these writers would become successful commercially.
All that is gone.
While the advent of electronic media is actually a boon for writers, it is a difficult path to travel alone. Many companies have appeared who - for a fee! - promise to do much of the work of formatting, editing, publishing and promoting your book for you.
Because, let's face it, WE are writers, not marketers. Personally - and from the experience of many writers I know - the best thing these companies are good for is making money from you.
That is not how our publishing company works. Our greatest joy is discovering a talented writer and shepherding her/him along to a successful career. We devote our time, our energy, our heart to this. In consultation with you we then design the interior and exterior of the book, and promote it. We navigate tricky byways on our own dime. We pay for the privilege of publishing you.
Royalties are contractually set on a case by case basis.
And we have a genuine love of the editing process.
So please check out our Writing Submission Guidelines here and consider us on your next project.
