ADELAIDE BOOKS LLC is a New York based independent company dedicated to publishing literary fiction and creative nonfiction. It was founded in July 2017 as an imprint of the Adelaide Literary Magazine, with the aim to facilitate publishing of novels, memoirs, and collections of short stories, poems, and essays by contributing authors of our magazine and other qualified writers.
We believe that in doing so, we best fulfill the mission outlined in Adelaide Magazine – “to promote writers we publish, helping both new and emerging, and established authors reaching a wider literary audience.”
Our motto is: We don't publish classics,we make classics.
All titles are published in paperback and eBook format and offered through our distributors for bookstore distribution in the US, and through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and other major retailers for online sale worldwide. Optionally, we do hardcover editions with or without dust-jacket. Additionally, we offer the possibility of translating books into Portuguese and Spanish and publishing short-run paperback editions for distribution in bookstores in Portugal and Spain through ADELAIDE BOOKS PORTUGAL, based in Lisbon.
We offer to our authors two unique publishing contract options which guarantee full transparency of the pre-print and post-print publishing process, and generous royalties paid in a timely manner.
We are members of the Independent Book Publishers Association.
