Quarterly royalty payments and generous rates are just the start. Our author-friendly contract terms include minimum sales thresholds, clear rights reversion clauses, and a commitment to do right by our authors. If a publisher isn’t earning you money, they shouldn’t keep your rights. Plain and simple.

Why publish with Parvus?

The Benefits of Parvus Press

 

ADVANCE ON SIGNING

We’re new, we’re small, we’re fierce, and we put our money where our mouth is. Parvus offers advances with all publishing contracts, because you worked hard to write that novel and you should get paid for it.

QUARTERLY ROYALTIES

Parvus pays our royalties quarterly and you can decide to receive them via PayPal or check. We’ll send you regular sales updates every month, too – because authors need to plan their spending just like regular humans do.

Oh, and our royalties are in-line with or better than industry standard. Because it’s not enough to be scrappy, you’ve also got to pay the talent.

PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS

You worked hard to create your novel; nobody should ask you to give it away forever. Our standard contract requires us to publish your work or hand back your rights. Once we’ve published it, if we aren’t bringing in sales, you get those rights back.

It’s your book, we’re just here to help you make it the best book it can be and to get it sold. If we aren’t doing that, you should be able to take it to somebody else. But we don’t see that being a problem!

 

MARKETING AND PROMOTION

We have multi-channel marketing and promotion strategies behind every novel we publish. Our in-house expertise in Internet marketing and creative development gives us the tools to rapidly adjust and expand campaigns as the market responds to your books. In short, we’re here to help you get your book in front of the widest audience we can.

WRITE THE FUTURE OF GENRE FICTION

Publish with Parvus and help us write the future of speculative fiction. We want to help bring your new voice into the mainstream. If you’re writing the kind of book you’ve always wanted to read, but you’ve never seen it on a bookshelf – we want to read it!

COLLABORATE WITH THE BEST

Parvus is bringing together the best new talent in publishing. Authors with unique voices, visionary cover artists, elegant layout designers, and brilliant editors; all with the same goal – Delivering Great Books.
