To say that we aren’t your average publishing company is an understatement. Our focus isn’t solely on our success as a company or what we can gain. Instead, it’s centered on supporting authors and helping them succeed in their publishing journeys, whether or not they choose to pursue a traditional publishing contract. We know authors invest thousands of hours creating something amazing and they should be able to thrive and achieve all of their goals while under a contract with a publisher and beyond.
What we offer is far more than just a standard publishing contract. While traditional publishing contracts can be beneficial, we recognize that they are not the only path to success for authors these days. Our goal is to empower authors to pursue their unique paths, whether that involves traditional publishing, self-publishing, or a combination of both, for their entire book’s life. It’s important to note that copyrights last 70+ years. Our goal is to ensure that authors not only succeed during the contract period but are also set up to maintain the momentum we help build throughout the rest of their books life.
We don’t do cookie-cutter here. The only thing consistent across every contract is our rate of 15% across all sales for 3 years and what we give to our authors as part of their base package. The usual things like professional editing, cover design, formatting, distribution set up, and launch promotion are always included.
It can go in so many different directions from there it’s hard to put into words. Our knowledge of the industry and connections that we have allow us to really listen to our authors and discover what their ultimate goals are, and create a customized package of terms that meet their needs to achieve those goals. Every book does not need to be on every platform just because they can be, and we don’t believe you win long term by throwing nets out in every direction and seeing what gets caught. It’s costly, inefficient time and money wise, and the wins are very short term.
Our online bookstore serves as our real-time window into the ever-changing landscape of the book market. However, its significance goes beyond mere market observation. Operating solely online allows us to operate with minimal overhead costs, enabling us to negotiate more favorable terms with authors and publishers compared to many brick-and-mortar shops. Moreover, the diversity of titles we carry creates a powerful collective marketing effect, helping us keep advertising costs low. The proceeds from book sales contribute to covering business expenses, allowing us to offer authors more favorable contract rates while providing additional benefits
We believe that every author deserves the opportunity to succeed, not just in publishing but also in marketing and promotion. That’s why we offer ongoing education and support in these areas. Exposure that results in sales is great from a numbers perspective, but you also need those buyers reading so they become fans hungry for what comes next, or you have to spend more and more time promoting to keep the sales numbers up. It leaves little time for more writing, connecting with readers, and anything else we want to do as people. Credibility from a publisher comes from the publisher’s reputation as a company and how well they take care of their authors.
Visibility and credibility are essential elements in an author’s journey to success. At Twisted Souls Press, we understand the importance of both aspects and are dedicated to enhancing them for our authors.

Credibility: Building credibility is crucial for authors, and it begins with the reputation of their publisher. At Twisted Souls Press, we prioritize professionalism, integrity, and quality in everything we do. Our commitment to excellence in editing, design, and production, coupled with our transparent and supportive approach to author relationships, contributes to the credibility of both our authors and our publishing house.
Together, increased visibility and credibility empower our authors to stand out in a crowded marketplace, connect with readers, and ultimately achieve their publishing goals.
