ALVA Invites Authors to Submit Manuscripts for No Cost Publication
8:50 am est
It's a very exciting time for me to witness ALVA
having matured into a press that because it has 'gone traditional' no longer offers self-publishing.
Yet ALVA continues to revel in its commitment to "Cherish
the Author . . . Delight the Reader!"
ALVA's standard for excellence was set with its first two publications:
Jolt: a rural noir by yours truly, which took the Bronze in Inspirational Fiction in the 2011 Jenkins Living Now Awards
and Kristen Henderson's book, Drum Machine, which took the Gold Medal in Poetry in the 2011 Jenkins eLit Awards.
Thereafter, despite continuing to offer "self-publishing," ALVA accepted only one it two submissions. And of those
accepted, half were accepted only after Read Throughs and Final Line Edits. However now ALVA is happy to announce that its
base has stabilized to the point where it is ready to continue its standard of excellence as a traditional publisher,
publishing both eBooks and Books at no cost for manuscripts so accepted.
Further ALVA's distribution
services for eBooks has expanded to include in addition to the ALVA website, those of Amazon.com, B&N, and Kobo.
Distribution fee for all four sites is ten dollars a month or one hundred and twenty dollars a year. (And for authors mentioning
they read about the new arrangement in this block, for the month of March 2013, manuscripts accepted for publication will
pay only one hundred dollars annual distribution fee. So do submit now.)You will not find a better offer anywhere.
