Undiscovered books by new authors

At CMP we like to bring books by new authors to readers seeking a great read and a chance to discover tomorrow’s best-selling writer. In today’s crank-em-out-yourself publishing world there are a lot of books that otherwise would not see the light of day. Many should arguably never see the light of day. However, it is often the case that a writer has decided to self-publish because he has not been able to find a publisher or agent willing to take a chance on him, not because the writing is poor. CMP and its Young Adult / New Adult imprint, Soul Fire Press, exist to give those writers a chance to have their work edited and designed professionally and distributed on and offline worldwide.

A new kind of publisher

CMP is a new kind of publisher addressing the emerging paradigms of the publishing world. We publish books for today’s readers: books that are good reads and available as e-books as well as in print. We publish new authors whose work is exciting and needs to be read. Our books are print on demand and e-books, eliminating wasteful printing and minimizing our energy footprint. We care about readers, writers and the environment.

Author Run / Author Friendly

A hybrid publisher helping new writers get published 

Writing a book you want to see published? With over forty years of experience in publishing both fiction and non-fiction, as well as writing our own novels, we’ve been on both sides of the publishing fence. We know the quality and services you as an author want from a publisher and what the publisher wants from an author. We are looking for high caliber writing by new, undiscovered and talented authors. We know first-hand how difficult it is to find a publisher or an agent who will at least give your work serious consideration.  We also realize how confusing it can be to understand the business side of publishing, how hard it is to craft a book cover and interior design that looks professional rather than self-published. You will find we give you close personal service. 

Due to our size and reputation, we are selective in the books we choose to publish. We don’t accept every manuscript, but we promise to get back to you one way or the other. Submit your work for consideration, at Get Published button below. We promise to get back to you.

Coming in May
