Wayward Ink Publishing is a new, independent publisher that may be small in size but isn’t afraid to have big dreams.
We may be just a baby in the publishing world, having only been founded in January 2014, but being new doesn’t mean lacking in knowledge and ability. Co-founder and Executive Director, Lily Velden, holds qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She’s a published author, practicing artist, and headed the Finance and Administration Department of a multi-million dollar corporation for several years.
Our aim is to publish quality M/M Fiction and M/M Romance in both eBook and print formats.
Whether it’s a short story, novella, or full-length novel, we’re interested in hearing from authors at all stages of their career, be they aspiring or established. Our royalty payment scale is generous and geared to sales – the more sales, the higher the royalty.
We cover all genres, including contemporary, steampunk, historical, Western, mystery and suspense, science fiction, fantasy and paranormal, BDSM, and kink/fetish. We love humor and we love angst! We love sexy and a good old ripping yarn!
Wayward Ink will be releasing its first novel in late May, 2014, followed shortly by two anthologies, one of which, Bollocks! celebrates English humor, the other, Love, Loss, Laughter and Lust, the four ‘L’s which weave their way through all our lives.
Already, our contributing authors span the globe, hailing from Australia, America, England, and Germany.
At Wayward Ink Publishing we made the decision at our very first meeting to begin our business life in the way we meant to carry on. That meant supporting and giving back to the GLBT community. To that end 20% of all sales in the month of June,2014 of our Bollocks! anthology will be donated to an English charity active in the GLBT community. If you have a favorite charity, email us at the below email address – we’d love to hear all suggestions.
On a practical note, our website is currently under construction and will be unveiled at our official launch in April, 2014. Trust me, it will be worth the wait! Its funky and edgy, and full of surprises!
