Meryton Press PO Box 34 Oysterville, WA 98641
We are committed to releasing quality fiction from authors whose prior audience has primarily been the internet. With an eye towards expanding readership from the niche where they started into the larger publishing world, we are committed to making these exceptional works of fiction accessible and affordable to readers.
Meryton Press is not a vanity press. Our authors are NEVER asked to participate in the costs of publishing their books. Our publishing contracts pay generous royalties and ensure that authors retain much of the creative control over their works.
Unlike those of our larger cousins, Meryton Press editors and graphic designers work closely with the author to ensure a product that is both marketable to the public and pleasing to the author. Throughout the publishing process, attention is given to helping the author perfect their writing through editing for grammar and continuity.
Cover art and page layout are created by our professional design department to meet the high standards of the professional publishing world, while never forgetting the author’s vision. Our cover art is some of the most visually stunning in the industry.
In addition, our authors are supported far beyond the book release with exclusive promotional agreements as well as a forum for the authors to use post release to communicate with their audience. Meryton Press actively pursues awards like The Independent Publisher Book Awards (the IPPYs) for our releases.
Working through the Ingram Book Family, Meryton Press titles are available from big name online booksellers, as well as brick and mortar bookstores.
