We seek to bring those titles to the marketplace which are often overlooked by mainstream publishers,
works we believe have a distinctive voice and can reach a viable audience. We use Lightning Source Ltd (in the US, UK, Australia, and Brazil)
as a distributor and work directly with Amazon (worldwide), Ingrams and Barnes & Noble.
We are welcoming submissions and proposals for academic mongraphs (including Ph.D. dissertations),
novellas, literary novels (up to 180,000 words), crime novels (up to 100,000 words),
short story collections, poetry collections, general non-fiction (especially history),
and biographies (especially literary biographies).
An imprint is a trade name a company publishes under. They are created for a number of reasons,
but often to distinguish one publishing list from another. The history of twentieth century publishing
is deeply acquisitive, with many mergers and buy-outs. (The twenty-first century is looking no different!)
A brand name publisher you recognize is more than likely to be owned by a larger company and would therefore be an imprint.
So what is a division?
Parkgate Press operates as a division of Parkgate Publishing. A division is part of a company without being a separate legal entity.
Creating a separate entity in law to act as a revenue supplier is called a subsidiary.
Parkgate US is the umbrella company, and also operates two other divisions, Parkgate Printing and Parkgate Consulting.
