“The Library is a sphere whose exact center is any hexagon and whose circumference is unattainable,” states Jorge Luis Borges in his tale of sacred geometry and information science, The Library of Babel. It may be said that we take as our starting point this exact center, focusing arbitrarily yet intently on any hexagon which presents itself to our mundane perceptions, and expanding upon the disorientation extracted therefrom until nothing is left of language but its abstract scaffolding...

We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.

We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We work to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing by publishing our authors in both digital and print simultaneously while offering higher royalties than the Big 5. We truly believe in a publisher / author partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.

At Devil's Party Press we publish exclusively work by poets, fiction writers, and memoirists who are over the age of 40.

We truly value the older writer.

We strive to bring to the public excellent authors who can not find a voice through traditional publishing.

We are interested in work that grabs us by the heart, or the guts.

We want to promote and showcase writers in their second act, who are old enough to know better, and old enough to not give a rat's ass about knowing better.

We value women, diversity, LGBTQ, and damn good writing.

No torture porn, regular porn, bigoted/racist, or religious texts. 

Reading fee $10 for anthologies only. Those published receive free copy, value $14.99. Top 3 submissions get prize.

The very small reading fee helps us keep publishing. No charge for proofreading, editing, graphics, etc.

1 entry = story/memoir of 1,000 – 8,000 words or 1- 3 poems of no more than 1,000 words total. Submit 2 entries & 3rd is free.

No fees ever for full-length books. Currently seeking books for publication in 2021 and beyond.

Authors 40years + only.
