It’s immediately clear, upon visiting the website for Blue Crow Publishing, that these are people who love books.
You would think that a passion for all things literary would go without saying, but few publishers seem to show the unbridled enthusiasm and the heart-pounding, unconditional romantic feelings these editors have for the printed word.
Blue Crow Publishing always tries to deliver on five principle statements of belief that ultimately have the authors’ best interests in mind. These include:
- Authors should be treated with honesty and respect
- Books should be beautiful and of high quality
- Great writing is not limited by genre
- The best books are sometimes overlooked by publishers
- All authors deserve a voice, especially those whose writing the publishing world has so often turned its back on
To these ends, Blue Crow Publishing carries three imprints:
- Blue Crow Books: publishing paperback and e-book fiction in a variety of genres, including romance, thrillers, and literary fiction
- Raven Books: specializing in nonfiction, including social inquiry, cultural commentary, memoir, and more
- Goldenjay Books: YA
Impressively,Â they accept submissions all year ’roundâ€”a rare practice these days, indeed. However, Blue Crow Books and Goldenjay Books are accepting submissions right now through referral only; Raven Books is open to unsolicited manuscripts.
