Parvus Press: Accepting Full Manuscript Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | March 23, 2017

Parvus Press is a new digital first publisher of science fiction and fantasy novels. They have been around for over a year now, they have published one book that has sold over 4,000 copies, and they have two other books scheduled to release this year. One already has a release date and information about it up on the website, the other does not. They hope to publish more books in 2018

Usually we like to wait a little longer to review a publisher, and even in reviewing Parvus now we are doing so cautiously and with warnings. Many publishers fail before the two year mark. They only have a one book track record. They are still figuring things out. All things to keep in mind.

However, we have decided to review them in part because they have an excellent, easy to use, website. They have a good track record with the one book they have published. They seem to be actively trying to get an established reputable distributor for their books. They also have a reputable editor on board who has worked  with Chuck Wendig. The two founders of the company appear to have a solid background in marketing, which is not the same as publishing, of course, but is a step in the right direction.

Also, they are offering advances of up to $3,500 as well as quarterly royalties on sales. For a new publisher they seem to already be doing some things right.

I also like the fact that they have very clear submission guidelines. They are currently accepting full manuscript submissions. They respond to all submissions within 60 days.
