Is this "cooperative" book publishing? (Calumet Editions, "Letters from Elvis")
I got an email or tweet about this publishing company, Calumet Editions, which appears to be a cooperative publisher, which does not take all comers, but seems to welcome new authors more than traditional trade publishers.
My impression is that their service might be interesting for a fiction submission.
I suppose this arrangement could work for handbooks or how-to books that are narrow and where the author has very focused commercial experience with the subject matter.
The company offers some videos about a book called “Letters from Elvis” by Gary Lindberg, about some sensational material about Elvis Presley.
You can find material critical of this company on YouTube, so be forewarned. Do some more of your own checking.
