BLACK OPAL BOOKS--BECAUSE SOME STORIES JUST HAVE TO BE TOLD.

Based in the Pacific Northwest, BLACK OPAL BOOKS was founded by people who thought the publishing industry could do more for both readers and authors. So they formed BLACK OPAL BOOKS and gave it a mission: produce high-quality, well-edited books for readers, while helping authors achieve their dreams, as well as a higher percentage of royalties.

For Readers: Since we’re readers, too, we know how frustrating and disappointing badly-written and poorly edited books can be. We understand that when you pay good money for a book, you expect to get value for your dollar. So at BLACK OPAL BOOKS, all our books are carefully chosen for quality and thoroughly edited before a single copy goes out.

For Authors: Since we’re authors as well as businesspeople, we know how much hard work goes into writing a book—endless hours spent staring at a page while searching for words, struggling to finish the first draft, revising, editing, more revising, and still more revising. We also understand how disheartening it is, when you finally write the dreaded query letter and send it out to publishers, only to have your book rejected based solely on your query letter by someone who hasn’t read a single word of your book. Or even worse, to not get a response at all. And if you're lucky enough to get accepted and published, to receive royalties of such a small per cent. So at BLACK OPAL BOOKS, we let you send your completed manuscript along with your query letter. For all properly submitted queries, we read at least one chapter of the manuscript before deciding whether to accept or reject it. We also respond to all properly submitted queries. For those of you we do accept, our royalties start at 45%, for both ebook and print, and go as high as 70%.
