Waterton Publishing Company
From the Publisher
Waterton Publishing Company was founded in 2012 and is based in Los Angeles, California, USA. We publish quality adult fiction books, young adult fiction books, children’s books, short stories, poetry books, art books, and essays. Short stories, essays, and poetry may be published through the periodicals, Waterton Review and Waterton Review Young Adult. We are a small publishing house focusing on growth through the publishing of good books, compilations, and periodicals. Waterton Publishing Company books and other published works are available for sale in all formats worldwide (digital and print-on-demand) – including through Google Play, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo, and more; and available in print/ebook to tens of thousands of retailers, libraries, schools, internet commerce companies, and other entities that order books, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chapters/Indigo (Canada), and other well-known book retailers and wholesalers across North America, the United Kingdom/Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and worldwide. Our goal is to give writers and other artists the chance to sell their works and build their reputations by offering a professional publishing house through which to work. We help authors build the best product possible and open every avenue to success. This means we are more flexible on which works we accept but do not spend a lot of money on marketing and advertising (unless the work “takes off”) and do not pay advances. Waterton Publishing Company accepts submission inquiries from authors, creators, and agents. We work closely with each writer and artist, and are able to provide book illustration, design, proofreading, and editing services if the author/artist wants us to provide such service(s). We want the author/artist to succeed in earning a living doing what he or she loves to do – which is a goal shared by all of us! Thank you for your interest in Waterton Publishing Company.
