Parvus Press LLC was founded in 2016 by two lifelong friends, Colin Coyle and Eric Ryles. We are a publisher of speculative fiction, passionate about great stories, and committed to publishing the next generation of great creative minds.
Parvus has sold over 10,000 copies of our titles to date and will release four novels in 2018 for your reading pleasure.
We are headquartered in Northern Virginia and look forward to meeting you all soon!
Our mission is simple: To publish books so good you won’t put them down for dinner. We want you to have a miserable day at work because you couldn’t stop reading a Parvus title to go to bed. We want to publish the work of great storytellers and take our readers to wonderful new worlds.
Colin is a technologist with an education in theater and business and a background in enterprise network design who turned to the dark side of sales and marketing.
He fell in love with genre fiction when he discovered Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles in elementary school and spent every available minute between then and the introduction of the internet in the library’s fantasy & science fiction section.
Colin is a family man, has been freeform roleplaying on IRC for far too long, and spends his weekends making sawdust.
Eric is a business leader specializing in web-based content, digital publishing, and marketing.
He certainly does not hold some kind of record for most readings of “Ender’s Game”, and you can’t prove that he compiled a page-by-page index and theory chart for the “Wheel of Time” either.
Eric is a family man who thinks video games should have just stopped after Civilization II and Final Fantasy IV, and has one sheep and a brick for your two ore.
JOHN ADAMUS has been a professional editor since 1997. After a hefty round of academics at Montclair State University, Kean College, and Ramapo College and a hand at speechwriting, playwriting and screenwriting, he began to work with new authors in YA and fantasy in 2000. He later branched out into science fiction, historical fiction, academic non-fiction, cookbooks, role-playing games, and self-improvement. He has worked with New York Times best-selling authors and Hugo award winners, as well television executives on a variety of projects.
John is committed to helping writers produce their work through easy to understand instruction and practical habits. He blogs regularly at http://writernextdoor.com and tweets about a variety of topics at @awesome_john.
Kaelyn lives in New York City, much to the annoyance of its inhabitants. She is a student of military and American history with a masters degree to prove it and no less than two coups to show she’s more than just book smart. Kaelyn also has a practical degree in the Dark Arts of Finance. Her hobbies include ranting about plot holes in movies and attempting to curse rival sports teams.
Kaelyn has several house plants she is very fond of and when not working or reading, she can be found walking New York on her never-ending quest to try every slice of pizza in the city.
Minion is an integral part of the team here at Parvus Press. He does most of the copyediting, layouts, and accounting. If you find any typographical errors, the fault is entirely on Minion and not on the fine Parvus author.
He enjoys travel and has been to Europe, the Middle East, The Shire, and Oceania. He lives to serve and throws one killer ice cream party.
