PUBLISHING YOUR PROSE
For book-length prose, please follow the Amador Publishers Submission Instructions. If you are looking for more than a yes/no reply, you may want to start with our Book Critique and Evaluation Service - it is reasonably priced and will help you cut through a lot of b.s. You will be under no obligation to purchase more services. Author Feedback
Worldwind Books, an imprint of Amador Publishers, LLC, is a pay-to-publish service reserved for poetry collections and unique prose projects.
Amador Publishers is striving to build a press with a reputation for excellence, bring all of our existing titles into the digital marketplace, and find distinctive new titles and energetic authors, so that we may achieve a platform that sustains itself through sales. Even so, there will always be projects that are worthy but too ambitious for this small press. Publishing fees allow us to pay our trusted design and editorial consultants to help produce quality titles that would not otherwise be brought to the public.
We are selective in the titles we publish and meticulous in our pre-press process. We strive for high literary quality and professional production. An author-funded publishing arrangement with Worldwind Books / Amador Publishers secures the author's intellectual property with a registered copyright, generates royalties and sales revenue for the author, and opens the door to exciting new outlets for the work.

Amador Publishers offers a Book Critique and Evaluation service to evaluate your writing and offer specific, constructive advice to improve and market your manuscript. All manuscripts are considered for publication, but purchasing this service does not guarantee that we will publish your book. If we think your book is right for either our Worldwind Books imprint or the Amador list, we will provide publishing/funding options for you to consider. You are not obligated to purchase. If we do not offer you a publishing package, we will still provide a critique of your book's key strengths and weaknesses with recommendations for how to proceed with preparing the work for publication or finding a suitable publisher.
Manuscripts are accepted by snailmail or email. Please follow these steps:
