We are a different sort of publisher. The author owns and retains the copyright. The author grant us the limited right to publish his or her work in hardcover, paperback, ebook, or audio book formats. We collect the revenue produced and split that generously with the author. We created the cover and book formatting and review that with the author. We create a book trailer and review that with the author. We set up a web page for the author on foolchurch.com and an individual website page for each book too.

We do not want:
  • Books that promote hate, intolerance, or bigotry.
  • Books that promote the harm of children.
  • Books that denigrate or show harmful bias or intent based on gender, age, sexual orientation, or physical disabilities.

Poetry books can range from haiku to sonnet to free verse. Poetry books tend to be slimmer than novels, and the visual arrangement on the page can be critical to the experience. We are open to any style of poetry, illustrated or not. We only object to poetry that is hateful or bigoted.

We charge a $2 refundable reading fee because we are a small operation with little time to evaluate manuscripts. Make certain you are serious, and your manuscript is ready for professional publication before submitting. If your work is accepted, your fee will be credited to your royalty stream. If your work is rejected, the fee is forfeit.

We are looking for well written novels that have undergone a professional copy edit. Please make certain your manuscript is perfect before sending it to us. Any manuscript that smells of an early draft will be rejected without comment. We favor science fiction, horror, action adventure, and historical novels, but are open to anything that grabs us.

Always send us the entire novel. Never just sample chapters.

We charge a refundable reading fee that we feel is fair, because of the overhead of work involved in evaluating your manuscript. If your work is accepted, the fee is credited to your royalty stream. If your work is rejected, your fee is forfeit.

We are an unfunded startup so that fee helps us serve our authors to the best degree possible

Technical books must be restricted to topics covering email and email security.
  • sendmail, qmail, postfix and other MTAs
  • SPF, DKIM, and DMARC and other RFC standards
  • Spam, Phishing and other email  threats
  • Other aspects of email we may not yet have thought about
Please do not query us with an idea. Instead send us the completely written book, already copy edited. Also in your cover letter, list at least two people with appropriate technical knowledge to review your book.
