We provide three different publishing models, Light Messages Traditional Publishing, Torchflame Hybrid Publishing, and Author Publishing. Our publishing standards, quality of the books, and their availability to retailers are the same, regardless of the path to publication. The main difference lies in roles, responsibilities, and the revenue model.
We publish works of fiction and non-fiction in most genres. We do not publish books containing erotica or paranormal themes, those which advocate hatred, sexual or other exploitation, libelous material, or plagiarized text.
Submissions are evaluated by our editors based on literary quality, subject, and sales potential. We value freedom of expression and encourage creativity of ideas. Except as expressed above, we express no social or political bias in our selection process.
To consider a title for publication, we require the complete manuscript, not an excerpt or a proposal. Children’s books must include illustrations.
We require the following information in order to evaluate not only the quality of the writing but also the sales potential of the book.
- A synopsis of the book
- Manuscript length (between 25,000 and 90,000 words preferred)
- Your book sales experience
- Your marketing platform
Please use the online form to submit your manuscript.
