We founded Elektra Press as a conventional independent publishing house that likes to think unconventionally. And we’re looking for the extraordinary. Good writing; strong voice; gripping story; larger-than-life characters; jump-off-the-pages action; broad sweeping narrative; and dynamic dialogue.
What, no pizza with the works? Well, that would be nice, too. But we’ll settle for what we can get.
And what we want to get from you is great fiction and nonfiction. Period. Nearly any genre or type. For any age from beginning reader right through the end of life as we know it. As long as the quality of the writing shines through, we know we’ll be able to market it. And when we market it, we help our writers put food on the table and gas in their cars. Our standards are high, sure. But our expectations are even higher.
What types of material don’t we want? Poetry–we simply can’t sell enough of it to pay the bills. “Hate” books–we simply don’t agree with the philosophy. Gratuitous pornography–we think of it as poetry on steroids.
Everything else, and we’re pretty much game.
So check out our link for E. P. Submissions, send us a query, and let’s see what happens. You have the artistic flare. You have the dream. You have the zeal. We have the know-how. We have the experience. And we have the marketing savvy. Let’s get together and make some noise!
