1000Volt Press seeks to publish books we want to see in the world. As an independent press, we seek to work with authors who wish to retain a measure of control over their intellectual property. We publish print-on-demand paper and hardback books and distribute electronic books worldwide. We work with vetted industry professionals on a contract basis for editing and proofreading but all design and final editing decisions happen in-house. We do not currently have capacity for marketing and author events planning but will refer authors to industry experts if requested. We are not taking submissions for 2023 at this time. Submissions for 2024 will open in fall of 2023. 

Author Services

For independent and self-published authors, 1000Volt Press Author Services offers book and cover design, developmental editing, and indie publishing account setups and uploads in-house. Fees for these services are negotiated on a case-by-case basis depending on the scope of the project. We also act as a referral service to vetted professionals for other services including line editing, proofreading, and marketing. We do not have translation services available in-house or by referral at this time.
