How we publish

SJDodgson MJoTA 2020 v12 p0309

Somehow I am staring down seventy and I know more humans who are dead than are alive. So many have been barreling along, suddenly really comfortable in what they are doing and in how they are living, and it stopped. I am struck how they were all living as though life is infinite, and their things will belong to them forever, but it will not.

Emerald Pademelon Press LLC will publish books entirely as open access, meaning that anyone can read the book online, using Gutenberg.org as a model, but with one major difference. If you publish your book with Gutenberg, you give up the copyright, which means anyone and everyone can freely download and print your book and sell it, turn it into a screen play. You have given your work to the universe and you no longer have any say over what happens to it.

Emerald Pademelon Press LLC  does not take the copyright, the writer retains the copyright. And if a million people read your work and a commercial printer, film-maker sees it and wants to buy the rights from your heirs (you may not be around, make sure you mention your copyright in your will): well done!
Do you want an objective review by a third party? We can provide a written review on request for a fee. 
Emerald Pademelon Press LLC is looking for manuscripts that can be published as print books or ebooks, or even as booklets.

If you look through this site, or through the four other sites we publish, you know we do not watch daytime television, or any television soap operas or reality shows, and are focused on science, climate change and human rights. We are additionally interested in sustainable living and links between lifestyle, nutrition, renewable energy and health.

If you can incorporate all of that into a novel, we want it! But what we really want is clean, elegant writing that does not belittle the reader, or the subject, and that teaches while it entertains.

Book for children; that would be great. Even better if a timeless story is accompanied with great drawings.

How to submit your manuscript:
a) send a double-spaced manuscript of the synopsis to publisher@mjota.org. If we think it is publishable, we will work with you, but the manuscript has to have something that grabs us and forwards our mission.
b) send a short bio of who you are. Write about what drives you, what has pushed you to the point of wanting to tell the world your story
c) explain why you want EPP to publish you
d) explain what you want: ebooks, print books (how many) and what you are willing to do to help market the books.
