We invite authors to submit proposals for potential projects.  Please email us first with your proposal before submitting manuscripts.  We are not responsible for manuscripts sent to us.

We are not a subsidy publisher. We do not provide self-publishing services. We are an independent niche publisher. We tend to work on projects that most larger publishers would not consider to be cost effective. We have established strategic partnerships which allow us to get our books into distribution very quickly and efficiently.

Our author arrangements include the design and set up of new titles. Authors are paid a percentage of sales, including ebooks.  Authors are able to order personal copies for resale at book signings, speaking engagements, and other events. We are very “author friendly” and tend to be very flexible and supportive in our arrangements with authors.
