The Anaphora Literary Press was started as an academic press with the publication of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal (PLJ) in 2009. In the Winter of 2010, Anaphora began accepting book-length submissions. Anaphora has now published over 60 creative and non-fiction books. John Paul Jaramillo’s collection of short stories received an honorable mention for the Latino Literacy Now’s Mariposa Award Best First Fiction Book Award. Professors have taught from a few Anaphora books. Many Anaphora writers have scheduled readings at major local book stores. Anaphora books have also had several articles published about them in regional newspapers. PLJ has featured interviews with best-selling science fiction writers like Larry Niven, and young adult writers like Cinda Williams Chima, James Dashner and Carrie Ryan, as well as interviews with the winners of the Brooklyn Film Festival and top academic editors.
Submissions: We are actively seeking single and multiple-author books in fiction (poetry, novels, and short story collections) and non-fiction (academic, legal, business, journals, edited and un-edited dissertations, biographies, and memoires). Email full MS (books must be completed prior to submission), bio, summary and marketing plan in a single Word document to email@example.com. Profits are split 50/50% with writers. Direct author sales of discounted copies, and collaborative marketing are essential to the success of a project. We are currently primarily printing books POD with Lightning Source, a subsidiary of Ingram. Anaphora does not have any outside funding and every book has to recuperate expenses invested into it. Anna Faktorovich, an English professor, acts as the Director, and designs all of the books.

Help me pay the publication fees for this book, so Anna Faktorovich can release it with Anaphora, and buy a copy of the book upon release for your $25 contribution. This is a reverse love-story, where the happy ending is the end of love affairs, not the beginning of a new love affair – but many love affairs in the midst of significant historical events are portrayed – Napoleon, Alexander Dumas, are just two among a long list of historical characters – the book is based on history, but takes possible assumptions of what could of happened to the extreme – to fill the book with dramatic conflicts. Anna Faktorovich is currently in the midst of research, and hopes to finish this novel in 1-2 months – so you will receive a completed a copy of the book shortly after the 1-month period to fund the project ends on March 11, 2014. Only $200 is needed to cover basic costs – but more funding would be greatly appreciated. Please email the Director, Anna Faktorovich, if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will only be charged if the $200 goal is reached. If the goal is not reached, you will be notify you upon the book’s release, so you can buy it on Amazon.
