Fireborn Publishing Promises...

Fireborn Publishing promises to authors that we will...

1. …be true to the EPIC Code of Conduct for publishers.
2. …pay authors first…always. Owner pay comes out of the budget last. We will not spend money until authors are paid. Period. When the opportunity arises, we will reinvest money in growing the business.
3. …consider all suggestions brought to us seriously, at a monthly meeting between owner staff, whether the suggestions come from authors, editors, or readers.
4. …allow our staff to do what they do best, within their budgets, without micromanagement.
5. …departments support other departments as much as we can. Streamlining the job for everyone lightens the load.
6. …help our authors to promote/market their work to the best of our ability, teach new authors to promote/market themselves, and be available to answer all questions authors have.
7. …write and maintain an ebook for authors, giving answers to commonly-asked questions, and maintain active communication between authors and contacts in the individual departments.
8. ...Maintain PDF copies of royalty reports and book copies online, so authors can download their copies, in perpetuity.

Gorgeous eye candy for our potential authors and potential readers!

You can't always see the work we're doing behind the scenes, but we are working hard. Today, we're going to share with you some of our upcoming covers.

Like most publishers, we're going to be using individual covers for works over 20,000 words, but on short works, we're going to have a collection of special covers, separated by pairings and genre. Today, we'll be giving everyone a sneak peek of some of our Fireborn Flash Fiction covers. Hope you enjoy, and kudos to the fabulous Allison Cassatta for her work on these covers!

News and more!

Good news on the horizon! We've earned about $3000, and we've been putting it into necessary infrastructure, as the money comes in. At this point, we are building the site, and thanks to the generous agreement of several of our authors and cover artists, we're going to have a "soft launch" with books written by some of our supporting authors, BEFORE we even start taking submissions! We live to delight!

But, to those who've already signed up as reader-members via the ecwid shop, you won't lose any of your time because of the soft launch. You get your percentage off ebooks for the soft launch AND for the full year (or more, depending on which package you bought) after the first year of regular releases. Another bonus for our early adopters!

Stay tuned for more news, as we build the company and prep for our launch.
