Open Book Press is an imprint of Pen & Publish Inc. founded in 2005 to serve schools and nonprofits. Our book-publishing mission is to serve each individual or organization by offering them a choice of services to fit their objectives. Each project and person is unique and deserves to be treated fairly and communicated with honestly, even if it means sending them elsewhere for services. While we strive to be efficient, we will never adopt a factory model to crank out books in mass. We will not hide costs and information, or violate our ethics to grow our business. We will recommend choices based on the value to the client/author, not our potential profit. Open Books Press is a traditional-hybrid imprint--no author fees, but no royalty advance. We welcome hearing from you at any point in your writing and publishing process. When you are ready to have your work considered, we need your finished [final edit] manuscript and your marketing/promotion plan or proposal, including details on your current platform. This should lay out what you specifically will do to promote the book, ideally organized in chronological pre- and post-publication order, and what base/platform you have established to do so. Please include your past publishing history, if any, with sales numbers. Most of our agreements include trade paperback and e-books, but we try to be as flexible as possible. Our royalty percentages range from 30-50% of our net proceeds (wholesale price minus book printing for POD, or the amount we receive from the sale minus any direct expenses), with the higher percentages as certain sales volumes are reached or for self-published work (see Pen & Publish for publishing services). We want to give authors every chance to prove their ability to reach their audience. We are incorporating crowdfunding (Pubslush.com) and/or advance orders into our process to help un- or little-known authors with advance promotion. This provides flexibility to publish more authors with quality work we want to invest in. We will allow authors the option to crowdfund direct or use our Pubslush account.

Bracket Books was founded by publisher Sam Majors and is based in New York, New York. The company was established to fill a niche, a publishing void that grows larger as traditional print publishers continue to consolidate, struggle to maintain their narrow profit margins, and hold onto outmoded methods of distribution and old-fashioned book marketing techniques. Our business model embraces digital distribution and online marketing, and although we love to design and devour books that are produced in a printed form, we understand that the key to succeeding in the book industry in the coming decades won't be price points or corporate alliances; the key will be, as it always has been, matching the right author with the right audience, and doing so in an efficient, intelligent way. Although we publish fiction, our focus is non-fiction, and we'll be releasing approximately four non-fiction titles for each fiction title we publish. At this time, we do not publish coffee table books, art books, or children's books, and we cannot imagine ever being interested in publishing poetry or plays. We are primarily interested in books about the art of photography or about photographers, but we will also publish fiction that is connected, in an important way, to pop culture, particularly to movements in film or genres of popular music.
