Eifrig Publishing: Now Accepting Book Proposals

Written by Emily Harstone | July 2, 2015

Eifrig Publishing is a small independent publishing company that focuses on publishing children’s books. They also publish family psychology books, some non-fiction for adults, and books on education. They publish some eBooks. Their motto is “good for our kids, good for our environment, and our good for our communities.”

They are not listed on the watchdog site Preditors & Editors and there is limited information available online about them. Their website is easy to navigate, they don’t mention much about distributors, contracts, or anything along those lines. However they are focused on selling books over recruiting new authors, which is a good sign.

The About page states that the company was founded in 1996 but it also states that they published their first manuscript in 2006. I do not know if this is a typo or not. I also do not like the fact that the owner of the company has self published a number of her own books under the companies name.

The covers of the books themselves vary in quality although the Children’s books appear to be thoughtfully illustrated.

They have very specific book proposal guidelines that focus a lot on marketing and expect a fair amount of market research. However, they are open to proposals even if the manuscript is incomplete, which is unusual.
