4 Paws Games and Publishing is once again taking in new author submissions with a preference to young adult and adult fiction. If you're looking for a publisher that will treat your book like their own, will be honest with you from the start, and you want to control most of the process involved in your book, while wanting higher royalty rates than many other places then we may be right for you. We are a hybrid/self-publishing company that is great for authors who don't want to do all the work selling, who aren't sure how to publish, who just want to write or can't afford the publishing costs. So why do we take in the first book free? We want to add a variety of genres to our name. And let's be honest, we want you to get a taste of how we work and we hope that you will come back with another book plus I like helping people. Please note that the free package does not include illustrations for a children's book as I can not illustrate, but anything else I can do for you is at no charge. Should you need an illustrator, you are welcome to bring your own or hire one of our freelancers. We do not pressure and there are no obligations to sign on with us or to buy books. If you have a manuscript that is another genre than we are looking for, feel free to contact us anyway. Visit our website ( www.4-Paws-Games-and-Publishing.ca ), message from here or give us a call.
