BUYING OUR BOOKS

Books offered by Penumbra Publishing can be bought from our online distributor partners that carry our titles (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Sony, Apple, Kobo, Diesel, etc.). We formerly sold books through our website but are in the process of moving away from that process. Our website may appear to allow sales, but we are modifying the website to simply display book pricing and information. We now sell all our titles exclusively through distribution partners online, so you can buy direct from those sources.

BOOK CONTENT RATINGS

Penumbra Publishing wants to help readers make informed buying decisions regarding the books we offer for sale through our website. To do this, we provide a rating description at the end of each book description. Rather than use catchy terms like spicy or steamy that may not encompass all content aspects, we simply note content we feel may impact reader purchasing decisions. Content covered in the rating statement may include the following:

ABOUT US

Penumbra Publishing is a small independent online publishing company that opened for business in January of 2009 as an online publisher, meaning the sales of our books take place through online retail distributors like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Apple, etc. We formerly sold books through our website but have discontinued that activity and are in the process of modifying our website to cease active selling of books through our website. We have enjoyed helping authors get their books published for seven years. As of January, 2016, we changed our publishing structure to an author cooperative, allowing existing authors to handle their own books and receive all sales royalties direct from distributors. We hope to complete that transition by June 30, 2016. We no longer accept new submissions for publishing.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND SUBMISSIONS OR QUERIES, AS WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING THEM.

PRODUCTION SERVICES

We plan to offer editing and formatting services at various levels but will not do so until after completion of transition from royalty-paying publisher to author cooperative, target date June 30, 2016
