I understand that authors are increasingly well-informed and are taking things into their own hands by growing their platforms and negotiating contracts. So, at Castrum Press we prioritise the author's interests and aim to maximise author earnings through royalties rather than advances. We also aim to expand our author's readership through the rapidly expanding audiobook and foreign language translation markets. We actively seek out quality work and reach out to authors, who we believe will be a good fit for us, and we also accept direct submissions.
Just like a traditional publisher we take care of manuscript editing, formatting, cover design and marketing, however, we work in partnership with our authors and aim to not only publish great books, but to also grow our author's fan base. To this end we will offer guidance on how to do this, based on my own experience of publishing an Amazon bestselling sci-fi series.
The submission's process is simple:
Prepare your manuscript (see download link to template below and read my submission tips )
