Small press pop quiz - Pen Name Publishing

10 June 2014 / Leave a Comment
What makes Pen Name Publishing different to other publishers?
Pen Name Publishing is looking for bold stories by bold authors. We don't necessarily play it safe and we are going to present a variety of stories from diverse authors and diverse voices. We were founded on the premise of being a publishing company that truly works for the author, providing personal support, a full service development team, one on one relationships, and most importantly, the pay that authors deserve. We worked really hard, analyzed stacks of contracts from publishers of varying sizes, and picked out what we felt were the best pieces of each contract. We are firm believers that publishing is a partnership and the success of our publishing house and the success of our authors largely depends on how strongly we are able to work together.

What kind of manuscripts are you looking for?
We are looking for stories that will capture your spirit, soul, and bring something different to the table. Our first book from Christy Pastore, Fifteen Weekends, made us completely change our mind about publishing Contemporary Romance. The title is so witty, and features three strong women intertwined together. We were completely captivated, mesmerized, and caught in suspense while reading this manuscript. We are looking for fiction and nonfiction and will also entertain short story collections.

If someone was to read two books on your list, what should they be?
We currently have published two titles, Grim Hearts and Fifteen Weekends. If you had to read two, right now those would be your choices. However, trust me when I say we have some absolutely breathtaking books coming out this year and signed on for release in 2015. Updates will appear on our website as new titles come in.

What are you excited about for the next 12 months?
Continuing to grow. We are going to be partnering with Pubslush and their new publisher community which is an absolutely fantastic opportunity to reach readers and present upcoming projects. We also have a super top secret project for 2015 that we will be releasing the details for via Pubslush in the fall. We recommend keeping up with us on twitter @pennamepublish to stay up to date on all of the details. It's worth waiting for the announcement!
