Welcome to Stark Raven Press!

Founded in 2008, Stark Raven Press is an independent publisher that specializes in works of fantastic and speculative literature (horror, science fiction, and dark fantasy). Our first adventure in the publishing arena was with the horror magazine Macabre Cadaver back in 2008 through 2011 and we are proud to have made a splash on the scene. Currently, our primary objective is to produce quality print books and eBooks at an affordable price with the avid reader, collector, and investor in mind. We publish novels, collections, and anthologies of fiction, and occasionally non-fiction, of the highest quality and literary merit.

We make no promises of wealth or fame, and the truth is that you will need to do a lot of work to get your book out into the brick and mortar markets, but we can help with distribution, marketing, advertising, and, most importantly, creating the books. We can get your book formatted for print and eBook (sold on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo books, and many other fine retailers) quickly and professionally.

Stark Raven Press is an independent publishers supported wholly by sales, contributions from sponsors, and donations. We pay flat rates for accepted submissions plus royalties generated from book sales at 2.5% for short stories and poetry, 5% for novellas, and 50% for novels.

The truth is this: there are more writers and books than there are publishers. The odds of getting into any of the bigger paying markets are slim, and that leaves a lot of authors out in the cold, with nowhere to go. That is where SRP comes in. We fill a niche area in publishing, offering authors the possibility to get their book into print with an imprint that doesn’t scream self-published. SRP is a bona fide publisher, so if you choose to publish with us your book will be taken seriously and will have our imprint. If you have exhausted all other markets and feel that you’ve hit a brick wall trying to get your book published, then give us a try. We guarantee that you will be satisfied with our products.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript for consideration and publication please use our submission form to upload your documents.
