Alternative Book Press is a new publishing company established in October 2012 by Columbia University and Cornell University graduates with the following aim in view: To identify and publish genuine, pathbreaking works reflecting alternative viewpoints far away from the huge volumes of matter in publishing today. Works that stand out. Works that are not written primarily from the point of view of sales, but rather works that will be seen 50 or 100 years from now as of lasting import.
400 word synopsis and no more than 5 pages of manuscript

Are you looking for a good read? Fiction or nonfiction, our books will tickle the imagination and tantalize the mind. Our mission is to discover and promote new, talented authors. You'll find their finest work here.
Please read and follow the submission requirements at http://www.Pen-L.com/Submissions.html. If you have a story that's compelling and well-written, we want to see it. If you have a book that helps people in some way, we want to see it. We're in the business of entertaining and informing. If you have a work that fits the bill and is ready for market, we want to talk to you.
