UPDATE: We're adding new books every day. Be sure to check in often to see what's new!
UPDATE: We've invited authors submitting to us to give us their free reads to post and spotlight. It's a good way to get to know our authors and their work without risk to the reader. Remember that these are not technically Fireborn books, but we encourage our authors to build their audience however we can, and that includes helping them distribute their free reads, when we can.
SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN! Please click on the submissions page to see our guidelines.
Our Mission Statement... We intend to be the best publisher we can be. We will deal fairly with our authors and our readers, be responsive, and offer the best product we can, at reasonable prices. Fireborn Publishing is a staff-owned business with a cooperative mindset. The collective owners will put the authors first, the growth of the company and reader relationship second, and ourselves last.
Fireborn Publishing is a new experiment in publishing.
First... Take a team of industry professionals, who have worked for multiple indie presses. Make the department heads partners in the business. Give them autonomy, within the limits of their budgets, the ability to set the standard for the high quality they've wanted to see in the products we offer. Support each other fully and discuss all major concerns, no less than monthly. Moreover, offer the staff a small percentage of net sales, in addition to a modest salary, to make them active partners in the success of the business. Success means investing in the business first and raises for the staff secondary.
Then... Agree to be as responsive as we can be to concerns of staff, readers, and authors. Whether owner-staff ultimately decide the idea proposed is workable or unworkable, every suggestion will be given due consideration.
Finally... Build the business with the long-term aim of cooperative community as part of the matrix. As part of achieving that, we will be crowd funding our start-up costs, in exchange for member perks that begin with the first week of books released from the site. Whether you want to invest at the lowest level of $10 and get a mere 5% discount on all ebook purchases in the first year of book releases or you want to donate more and get higher discounts, more years of discounted purchases, free books, and even expedited printing and/or free standard shipping on print, there is a level for everyone. If we exceed our fundraising goals, we will expand our meager goals and add more bells and whistles for the authors and readers. With enough money, we will even build in a convention or two, with special perks for donating readers!
Crowd funding starts NOW! Just go to our store at the link in the header to see the crowd funding alternatives. As we meet each fundraising goal, we will let you know what we're building...just for you.
Then come join us on Facebook or on our blog. The more, the merrier.
