Red Orchid Publishing

Red Orchid Publishing
Melanny Henson
We started Red Orchid because we were frustrated with the publishing market. Now, more than ever, writers have the opportunity to produce books and have their stories read. However, after a writer pays a self publishing service or editor hundreds or even thousands of dollars, they are left alone to market their work by themselves, making it very difficult to compete against major distributors. Red Orchid intends to thwart this system by offering professional editorial services for free to upcoming talent and to provide a legitimate publishing platform for writers to market books. The spirit of Red Orchid is service and good will. Rather than upfront fees, Red Orchid accepts projects by commission. If we find an editor who believes in your project, we will help you produce quality work and we will help you sell your book in this highly competitive market. With updated multi-media marketing strategies and a strong network of talented writers and editors, Red Orchid is fast becoming a tangible presence in the publishing market.

Red Orchid's first organizational goal is to launch the careers of 30 writers on March 31, 2014. The deadline for being included in the 30 Writer Launch is February 1, 2014, 11:59 PM.

To be considered for the premier debut of Red Orchid's Writing Career Launch, your submission must be received by February 1, 2014.There are no length requirements. The submission should be a novel, a memoir, or a poetry chapbook in any genre. This contest is unique in that categories are not separate: the 30 best works will be chosen with no quota for type of book.

If selected for a career launch, your book will appear on the redorchipublishing.com website for 90 days for free. You will also be offered a publishing contract with Red Orchid at the end of the 90 day period, which you may decline if you wish.
