A writer’s manuscript is ultimately the writer’s heart. It should be treated with respect, and the author should have some control over the process. It’s the writer’s book. It’s the writer’s words. Every page should be treated with respect, held high, preserved for each and everyone that picks it up. We understand transparency can be construed as vulnerability or a sign of weakness in this day and age and send people running for the hills, but in all reality, doesn’t every writer want to be treated as a human being and not a manuscript?
ELJ Editions is open to authors of all backgrounds and perspectives. We will get a feel for who you are through your words, your stories and your voice. When we fall in love with your manuscript and find out who you are, we still won’t care about your pedigree. We will care most about you as not only a writer but a person. We believe in collaboration between writer and editor, person and person. We believe in words, what they have to say to the reader, to the world. We believe in transparency and accessibility. We feel publishing a book should be an interactive and personalized experience.
If you agree with our vision, if you want a meaningful experience when publishing either your first book or twentieth, please consider us. We encourage you to purchase a title, hold it in your hands, speak with our current and forthcoming authors, learn more about the press and ask them about their experiences. We encourage you to write to the founder with questions at any time and expect a personal response. if you believe you can benefit from publishing with ELJ, then we encourage you to submit whatever you would like. We will support you 100%. We put in our sweat equity to treat your baby like our baby.
Be Well. Write Well. Read Well.
