COMING in 2012: SRP’s line of eBooks that will take your Kindles, Nooks, and iPads by storm. We’re looking for quality fiction and non-fiction that will thrive in a digital format. Titles chosen for publication will be produced exclusively as eBooks. We’ll approach these eBooks with the same fire and enthusiasm you’ve come to expect from Sibling Rivalry Press – the same high-quality cover art, the same marketing attention, the same support from a publishing family. Authors whose manuscripts are chosen for e-publication will receive a contract for electronic production with Sibling Rivalry Press, a royalty rate of 50% on all sales, and full distribution through all Sibling Rivalry Press channels of publication. To be considered for e-publication through SRP, submit an outline of your manuscript (fiction, nonfiction, novella, memoir, short stories…) along with a 3-10 page excerpt to SRPSubmissions@gmail.com. And because electricity can happen anytime… we’ll always accept submissions. There will be no reading fee or purchase required to submit for consideration as an SRP eBook. We want your best.
When it comes to e-prose, what are we looking for? Our publishing philosophy will not change. We wanna take outsiders, get ’em drunk, and crash the literary party. Give us truth. Give us truth mixed with fiction. Give us your fantasies. Give us the dream you had last night, or the dream you had as a kid. Entertain us. Make us laugh so hard we cry, and make us cry so hard we laugh. There isn’t a formula here, except that we want the unexpected. As we say in every book we publish, we want manuscripts that make our hearts do karaoke in drag.
You’ll start noticing two icons on our website and in the SRP store:
Print titles will be marked by the “p” icon, and e-books will carry the “e” icon. Our poetry titles will continue to be published in print. Fiction and non-fiction will be our digital shining stars. We realize the publishing world is changing, and we’re electrified to be a part of it.
Here’s the door. We’re holding it open. Who’s gonna come to our party?
