Publisher: Charlie Dawg Press

Charlie Dawg Press, a small publisher in Kansas City, Mo., started out as an author services firm (charging authors to produce books), but to have more control over the quality of the manuscripts they publish, shifted its business model to that of a traditional publisher (they pay the author, not the other way around). I find this interesting because it’s a shift from what we usually see, where traditional publishers like Random House and Thomas Nelson add author services divisions.

Like a lot of small presses, Charlie Dawg Press does not pay advances. They work on a royalty share basis. The editors are looking for science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. They also publish poetry and anthologies.

Charlie Dawg CoversCharlie Dawg Press has so far published almost a dozen books, including Leyfarers and Wayfarers, a speculative fiction anthology by G.L. Francis; Molly’s First Golden Year, women’s fiction by Alma F. Quick; and The Legend of Graeme Macpherson, historical fiction with a time-travel twist, by Deb Kemper. Here’s the full list of Charlie Dawg Press titles.
