Red Sweater Press


Publishing books people actually want to read

In Alaska, there aren’t a lot of opportunities to publish a quality novel, much less a book that isn’t about Alaska. What we do have is a growing group of creative writers whose talents need to be recognized, not simply because we’re from Alaska, but because our work can stand on its own.

Red Sweater Press aims to produce novels and other books written by Alaskans that deserve to be seen on the shelf with Gillian Flynn, Ruth Ware and Paula Hawkins as much as John Green, Stephen Chbosky and Jay Asher.

What we want

Red Sweater Press (RSP) is looking to publish book-length, adult and young adult fiction, as well as select poetry and memoir. Thrillers, mysteries and speculative stories with well-developed characters appeal to us in a big way, and fantasy books are sometimes our bag, too. Heck, we’ll even be interested in magical realism. In general, though, we are not looking for “Alaskana” or overtly Christian works.

Whatever you pitch us, show us that you love it and can see it stamped with the RSP brand, and we’ll be happy to give it a good read through before making a decision.

What we can give you

Need a developmental or copy edit? Already paid for those services and just need a cover or publisher? Red Sweater Press can help you out.

Note: Alaska residents receive priority for all services, and only authors with strong connections to Alaska will be published by Red Sweater Press. However, works need not be about Alaska or reference Alaska to be considered for publication (in fact, we’d rather they didn’t).

RSP is not currently open to queries regarding free publication of commercial works but intends to offer professional editing services and publishing packages in 2020.
