Elephantine Publishing seeking authors, bloggers, and interns

Published February 4, 2015 by francesothomas

Elephantine Publishing has put out a call for new authors. Amanda Aksel and Heather Hildenbrand are looking for Young Adult contemp that deals with hard issues, YA PNR, New Adult contemp/paranormal, and Women’s Fiction.

They are also looking for bloggers to join their team and review books and share covers. In addition, they are seeking interns to contribute 2-5 hours per week. In exchange, they will:

  1. Learn the publishing industry (whether its marketing or the literary development side) from the inside
  2. Build their resumes so that you can use their time as a stepping stone to more opportunities
  3. Have the unique opportunity to work one on one with an innovative new business model

According to their pr material, while sharing marketing tips and discussing cover art, independent authors Amanda Aksel and Heather Hildenbrand came to the same conclusion; wouldn’t it be great if there was a publishing house that offered all the resources of traditional publishing, while still allowing the creative freedom of independent publishing? They set out to create their vision, and Elephantine was born.

They refer to Elephantine as a collaborative publisher. Their goal is to partner with authors to turn a love of writing into a successful career for years to come. They work side by side with authors through every step of the publishing process to create a unique and professional title to share with the world. Using strategic marketing, Elephantine provides their authors with industry tools and resources to build readership and grow sales.

Submission guidelines are on Elephantine’s website. Potential interns should submit a resume to  elephantinepublishing@gmail.com.
