St. Gaudens Press Editorial Department will accept book proposals and submissions from agents and authors, so long as the submission is fully compliant with the provisions outlined below.
Saint Gaudens Press is a full service, royalty-based publisher. We do not charge reading fees and do not charge authors for book or ebook production. Our royalties paid to authors are significantly higher than many publishers and in return therefor, we expect the authors' participation in promoting their book. All publishing is carried out by formal written contract. We rarely pay advance royalties. Contracting and payment for agented works will be conducted solely with the agent.
We expect our interests in submissions will center around popular fiction, romance, science fiction fantasy and popular market erotic fiction. We publish some books in hard cover, but most paper books are in trade paperback format. We publish ebooks in both Epub and Kindle formats. Some books are only published in ebook formats. We are a member of the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and subscribe to the Independent Book Publishers Association Code of Ethics.
