Foundations Book Publishing Company is a traditional publishing company with a focus on the author’s experience.
We currently publish a select 12 books per year, as we value quality over quantity. Because of that focus, we provide full services for our authors. We not only edit, format, and create cover art for your book, we provide access to marketing support, as well as teaching you how to market your work. Foundations provides free ad designs geared toward your targeted readership. As the author, you can spend as little or as much as you would like on ads.
We offer a standard three (3) year contract, renewable with mutual agreement. We accept all genres, and you can find our submission guidelines below. We officially opened our doors on February 29, 2016, with a single author. Since then, we’ve grown to over eighty and counting. While most new publishers close their doors within six months, Foundations has become an established organization, constantly striving to raise the bar for authors in the publishing world. It’s been our focus from the very beginning to build a company where we can help fellow authors achieve their dreams.
