Loose Leaves Publishing Partnership- A Royalty-paying International Publisher
Tucson, AZ Atlanta, GA Spartanburg, SC
Loose Leaves is a royalty-paying international publisher. We do not pay advances, but neither do we charge fees for set up, editing, printing, and distribution.
Please query us only about completed books and send us your best work. You should be proud of your manuscript and confident that it is free of errors before we see it.
We are seeking submissions of historical (especially medieval), literary, and fantasy fiction, including magical realism as well as biographical and creative non-fiction. In addition we accept nautical and U.S. historical, women’s fiction, thrillers, chick lit and YA.
We do not at this time consider books that are only romance without a historical or literary context or that are principally horror or with gratuitous sex or violence.

Mabel Leo Author- Nine Published Books Now Available on Kindle
Mabel Leo’s nine published books are no available on Kindle. She found the process easier than she expected, just time consuming. One great feature of Kindle is seeing a preview of the finished work before it’s actually published. And after it’s published, it’s still easy to make necessary changes. Now she’s ready to tackle doing the same for Barnes & Noble’s Nook. So don’t hesitate- this is a great way to let the world see your talent!
