35th Star Publishing is a small press publisher located in Charleston, West Virginia, focusing on non-fiction titles relating to West Virginia and the Appalachian region. We invite authors to submit proposals for potential projects.
We are not a subsidy publisher. We are a traditional, niche publisher. We tend to work on projects that most larger publishers would not consider to be cost effective. Our typical project is a non-fiction work associated with West Virginia history and culture. We have established strategic partnerships which allow us to get our books into distribution very quickly and efficiently.
Our author arrangements include the design and set up of new titles. Authors are paid a percentage of gross sales, including ebooks, and are able to order personal copies for resale. We are very “author friendly” and tend to be very flexible and supportive in our arrangements with authors.
