Watermark Publishing LLC is a unique, independent publishing company dedicated to publishing literary works of the highest merit.
Our mission is to enrich the literary culture with quality print books, Kindle books and PDF eBooks; to present important and inspiring literary works; to introduce new authors and poets; and to encourage each of our writers to step forth with confidence as we guide them through the process of establishing themselves in the literary community.
Unlike many independent publishing companies that charge for their services and are willing to publish any manuscript they receive because their primary concern is profit and not product, we select only those individuals whose works reflect a high degree of mastery—and our fees are minimal. By accepting only a limited number of book submissions each year, it allows us to work one-on-one with each of our authors. We discuss, design, format, educate, make suggestions and guide each of our authors through the entire publishing process; allowing the uniqueness of each writer to be reflected in a high quality published print book, Kindle book, or PDF eBook.
Although we do not offer marketing or distribution services, we do provide our authors with suggestions on promoting and marketing their books. We commonly suggest what we feel are the very best places to establish yourself and market your works; introduce you to the finest, most reliable web designers if you are in need of an author's website; and recommend reputable organizations that may help you connect with many important supporters of and contributors to our vast literary culture.
Watermark Publishing chooses its authors based on their works, not on their credentials. We are not looking for long lists of literary accomplishments, prestigious titles or awards; we are looking for great literature that reflects the writer’s unique spirit, skill and style.
We are publishers of integrity and, first and foremost, we are lovers of fine poetry and prose. It is our intention to create beautiful books that add to the richness of our world.
Please note that although we accept submissions on any subject, we do not read or publish "dark works." We prefer positive, inspiring words that honor our diversity, celebrate our humanness, reach deep into the center of our hearts and, in a most extraordinary way, touch our souls.
Thank you for visiting our website... Please follow all submission guidelines carefully, take your time, know that a literary master dwells within us all, trust your own greatness, and believe in yourself. We wish you the very best in your publishing journey and look forward to reading your finest works.
