Traditional or Self-Publishing? New Company Offers Indie Authors an Alternative Choice
Red Empress Publishing provides cost-effective printing and shipping services for authors to sell affordable books and still make a profit
Shenzhen, May 3rd, 2016 – Red Empress, a full-service publishing company, has announced its open call for book submissions. The brand-new outfit aims to offer writers an alternative to both traditional publishing and Print-On-Demand services by using cost-effective printing and shipping methods and passing these savings on to authors themselves.
American-owned but headquartered in Shenzhen, China, Red Empress Publishing benefits from government-subsidized shipping and an unparalleled distribution infrastructure derived from China’s position as the world’s main manufacturing hub. This allows the company to do bulk printing and worldwide shipping at a fraction of the cost of traditional publishers in the United States.
Red Empress Publishing also provides an advantage to Print-On-Demand outfits like CreateSpace by offering a wide range of services from editing and cover design to multi-language translation and marketing, at no extra cost to authors. This gives them the chance to publish and promote professional-quality books while keeping them at an affordable price for their readers.
The company will be launching its first paperback title, “The Vampire’s Daughter” by author Leigh Anderson, on May 17th. They are currently seeking submissions in any genre of fiction but especially romance, mystery, fantasy and historical fiction. Submissions by female authors and authors of color are strongly encouraged.
Authors can submit their books and request more information on Red Empress Publishing’s official website. For the company’s latest news and updates, visit Red Empress on Facebook and Twitter.
