Napkin Poetry

"My hands are loosely resting
On a large brown steering wheel.
There is loud,
Sensually rhythmic music
Pounding from my speakers.
I am alone." - [A Drive In The Dark]
Shards of glass
From a
Broken picture frame
I am reminded
Of myself" - [Nervous Laughter]
"He said,
She said,
The wall said nothing
In reply to all their
[In Reply To Nothing]

About Broken Publications

The way book publishing should be: collaborative, creative, communicative.

My favorite word is Broken. In fact, I love this word so much that I named my publishing company Broken Publications. The logo is a broken heart.... but the reason for this decision wasn't to be depressing. It was because there's a certain beauty in something broken, something imperfect. You have to be able to duct-tape and safety-pin yourself back together after you've been broken... and anyone who says they haven't ever been broken is probably lying. The strongest and purest beauty comes after you've dragged yourself out of the ugliest part of your life.

We want to bring the beauty of imperfection to surface. There is a certain shimmer within the cracks of life, be it learning, growing up, or growing wiser. This is the shimmer that we want to expose and allow people to appreciate, even if the mask has to be torn in order to accomplish this. It's that small bit of light that needs to shine through the cracks in our lives.

As an independent publisher offering non-exclusive contracts and collaborative creative control between author and publisher, we aim to introduce a new way of publishing while maintaining our focus on what matters: the message and the creators of it.

Founded in 2010 by Jennifer-Crystal "Jen" Johnson, working with Broken Publications is a personable and unique experience. We offer services for a fee as well as non-exclusive contracts for a share of royalties. The royalty rate for authors is at 40% net royalties, way above and beyond the industry standard. Because we use print on demand technology, we save on printing costs. Because we contract work to other telecommuting workers, we save on office space and utilities, not to mention the outrageous gas prices.
