Howdy, Parvus People!
We have a BIG year planned for all of you in 2018 with some titles that we are incredibly proud of on the schedule. From fantasy to scifi, our first YA, and an anthology that we haven’t officially announced (but are very passionate about). We’re bringing you some new authors, some new books from our existing authors, and we’ll be publishing some authors you’ve been reading for years.
To pull all this off, we’re going to need some help from our community of readers. Being a small, independent publisher means we get to publish whatever we like and follow our passions, which means we get to work on some very cool books. But it also means that we don’t have the resources of larger publishing houses. We’re looking for dedicated readers to become one with the Parvus Hive Mind!
Members of the Hive Mind will help us as beta readers, ARC reviewers, and boots-on-the-ground spreading the word about our titles. As an integral part of Parvus, you’ll get inside access to our authors and editors, convention goodies, autographed Parvus books, and whatever fun giveaways we find lying around the office (I have a spare toddler if anyone wants. No? No takers?). Most importantly, you’ll be helping us bring cool books and new voices to fantasy and science fiction readers.
Interested in becoming one with the Hive Mind? Email me, Colin@parvuspress.com, and tell me a bit about who you are, why you want to be a part of the Hive Mind, and link to some reviews of speculative fiction that you’ve written so we can get a sense of what you look for in your books.
Thanks, as always, for being Parvus People. We literally would not be able to do this without you.
(PS – I’ll be at the Baltimore Book Festival tomorrow haunting the SFWA tent. Please feel free to stop me and say hi!)
I think it’s time we address the elephant in the room. Parvus has been sorely lacking in one highly noticeable area since our launch. Just look at our “About Us” page and it’s clear as day when you see our first three team members; Colin, Eric, and John. Staring everyone right in the face.
Not one of us has a background in history! Well, it’s about time we address that issue by adding to the team.
Welcome Kaelyn Considine! Kaelyn is joining us as an Acquisitions Editor and is going to be focused on building out a killer catalog for us in 2019 and beyond. Kaelyn has worked as an archivist and finance maven and has a serious level of education in military and American history. Woe be unto the submission that tries to shortcut some tactics – Kaelyn will know! She has particular passions for American and Irish history, so bring a notebook if you intend to get her started on either topic.
Kaelyn is based in New York City where she spends her time reading, ranting about plot holes in movies, attempting to curse rival sports teams, and walking the city in a never-ending quest to try every slice of pizza NYC has to offer.
We’re incredibly lucky to have Kaelyn bringing her expertise, passion, and squad combat tactics to our team.
