“Reading to my oldest son at night, I often talk about the parts of the physical book. The dust jacket, the headband, and, yes, the endpapers. To me, publishers that care about books go to the extra effort to not just publish a book, but to physically build an attractive and quality book. Endpapers, in part, signify quality.”
—Andrew Zack, Publisher

Do you have out-of-print backlist titles that could be making you money?
 
Are you an unpublished author with a great manuscript?
Do you have one or more books no longer in print and you have had the rights reverted from the publisher? Do you want to reissue those books in new eBook or print editions? Then Endpapers Press is the solution.

The eBook marketplace is not only growing for new books, but it has presented an incredible boon to authors with deep and even not-so-deep backlists of out-of-print books.

Advances in technology have lowered the cost of entry to publishing and many authors (and their agents!) have discovered they can "independently publish" out-of-print titles. Unfortunately, these independently published titles often look self-published, rather than professional. The effort and costs associated with bringing an out-of-print book back to the marketplace can be considerable, including cover art, cover design, interior design, scanning, conversion, proofreading, as well as set-up and distribution fees. And those are just the obvious out-of-pocket costs.

You need a publisher to help you bring those books back into print and make them available for sale directly via the major online booksellers. Please consider Endpapers Press and allow us to reissue your previously published book in eBook and paperback formats.

Tell us about your work and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. We are now using Submittable, a website designed specifically for submitting your work to different publishers. You will be asked to create an account before you can submit. You will only need to do this the first time you submit and you will be able to use the same account to submit to all publishers, as well as agents, magazines, etc.,  using Submittable.

If you’ve been working hard on your novel or nonfiction work and believe it will compete in the marketplace and be received favorably by reviewers, then we would very much like to discuss publishing you through Endpapers Press.

Publishing both original and reissued works of fiction and nonfiction, we follow a traditional publishing process of developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading, and sharing our titles with industry reviewers.

Paying an industry-competitive royalty, we want authors who are creative, educated in publishing standards (you do own and use the Chicago Manual of Style, right?), and have clean manuscripts ready for our attention.

We are currently looking for manuscripts for all of our imprints.
