Boyle & Dalton logo Boyle & Dalton

Boyle & Dalton publishes great books. Our carefully vetted catalog includes work of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The world of publishing is changing, we're changing with it.

The Boyle & Dalton imprint was founded in 2014, as a quality-vetted imprint of Columbus Publishing Lab. Founder Brad Pauquette conceptualized a hybrid model which balances the financial and rights model of self publishing with the quality controls and production excellence of a traditional publisher.

Boyle & Dalton authors share in the cost of producing and marketing their book. Within our hybrid model, authors gain access to the infrastructure and resources of a traditional publisher, but retain the majority of the profits as if they had self-published.

Working together with authors, we produce books that compete with their traditionally published counterparts, but we adapt to the realities of modern publishing and take advantage of the technologies available to us.
Our designers and editors produce exceptional books that are distributed in both print and digital formats to all major retailers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Boyle & Dalton carefully considers all submissions for publication, based on manuscript quality. Boyle & Dalton does not acccept erotica or children's books.

We vet all submissions for quality, and only accept titles that will preserve the reputation of the Boyle & Dalton imprint.

All Boyle & Dalton books undergo a rigorous editing and production process, including developmental editing to ensure that your book is the best that it can be.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
