Bonnie Mercure's Guide to E-Publishers
Bonnie Mercure is a writer of dark fiction - visit her website

The e-book offers numerous possibilities for writers and readers. From a readers standpoint, there is the pleasure of reading entertaining and unique novels at inexpensive prices. For writers, there is the freedom to write quality books that perhaps don't quite fit into the print publisher 'niche.' Writers are free to explore in cross-genres and break out of the common molds set by traditional publishers.

Below is a list of non-subsidy electronic publishers. If you are a writer looking for an e-publisher, you can use this list as a starting point. Perhaps the best way to find the right e-publisher for you is to visit the various sites and see what type of books each has to offer. Read sample excerpts or purchase a book. It's also a good idea to review sample contracts carefully, which most e-publishers put up at their sites. Be wary of publishers that ask for money, for any type of service. A reputable publisher will edit your book without charging fees.

"An isolated stone cottage with no mains water, invaded by mice, rats and swarms of insects, a place where giant snowdrifts sever the electricity supply and all connections with the outside world... This is what Lawrence and Christine Dyer face when they start a new life up in the bleak, rocky hills of the English Peak District..."

A place of dreams and nightmares... or a dream come true?
