Crimson Cloak Publishing

Crimson Cloak Publishing

Crimson Cloak Publishing was created by people who care about our authors, editors, artists, and customers. For without them, we could not exist.

Crimson Cloak Publishing is a new and exciting voice in the publishing industry. Our main goal is to provide quality literature to our audience at a fair price. We publish soft-covers and e-books, currently.  Audiobooks and hard cover will come later.

We work together. We promote our books in a collective fashion whenever possible. “All for one and one for all,” if you will. This is a fun and supportive workplace.

We are not a text dump. Please have your manuscript finished and polished before you submit. If an author cannot go far enough to fix spelling and grammar mistakes, then we are led to believe that you won't put much into your marketing efforts either.

We are not a vanity or subsidiary publishing house. We do not charge fees. If you submit and we like what we see you should hear back from our staff in approximately 6-8 weeks. We do see many manuscripts a day. Please be patient.

If you have heard nothing in this time period, feel free to check back.

We accept manuscripts whether agented or not, previously published and even the novice. We do not publish libelous, erotica, hateful or racist materials. Any genre is welcome but submission does NOT guarantee publication.

We opened in April, 2014.  We had one author.  We have since published many books of differing genres, and now we have close to 20 authors, and lots of books in the works.  We believe in being honest, open and friendly.  We consider that we are above other companies in these respects.

We publish an Anthology series for charity - collections of donated short stories and other items sold in aid of a designated charity. The first of these was in aid of the World Literacy Foundation.  It is called Glodwyn's Treasure Chest and you can download it from the Digital Store on this site.

Check out Volume 2: it is called 'Steps in Time' and features stories of the Young Adult/Adult categories.  The charity chosen for Steps in Time anthology was Alzheimer's Research.

We do the anthologies as a way to get authors' names around, and give a sample of their work as well as giving back to Humanity by giving proceeds of these anthologies to Charity.  We want to do what we can to Pay it Forward.  We have made a Facebook page to this effect.  So that others in the community can post their ideas for Paying it Forward.  We call it Pink Piffing.
