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 170 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 used Anaphora’s books in their courses. Most Anaphora writers scheduled readings, and several have booked top venues like Barnes and Nobles, AWP, and major libraries. Stories about Anaphora’s books have been featured in national newspapers and on major network broadcasts across the world. PLJ has published interviews with best-selling and award-winning writers like Geraldine Brooks and Larry Niven, as well as interviews with the winners of the Sundance and Brooklyn Film festivals. Anaphora has exhibited its titles at SIBA, ALA, SAMLA and many other international conventions.

“I’m a Belgian who has been a fulltime author for 30 years now in the Netherlands and Flanders. But as a foreigner, I didn’t know exactly what to expect when Anna and I combined forces to present the American public an overview of the themes in my novels by means of a the short story collection, Dangerous Obsessions. I was very pleased with the professionalism and the guidance of Dr. Faktorovich. In a fast changing market, she combines the strength of traditional publishing with the opportunities of the latest technical innovations and marketing techniques.” –Bob Van Laerhoven, winner of the Hercule Poirot Prize and the USA Best Book Award

“I have some 700 publications including 13 books. Most of my experiences have been positive though now and again a publisher has caused me real pain. I published a small memoir with Anaphora and everything worked smoothly, efficiently, and the end result is a lovely little volume. Anna Faktorovich, the publisher, does an outstanding job acquiring, editing, and overseeing production. She then markets through the usual channels and attends countless conferences and conventions displaying Anaphora titles. Thanks!” –Robert Hauptman, PhD, professor emeritus, editor of the Journal of Information Ethics

 “First and foremost, service is fast and professional. Reviewing my book took a day. Editing only took a couple of weeks. The time between final edits and printing is only about three weeks. I know others who have published with small presses and it seems that Anaphora is superior to many of these companies. You feel like you are part of a team or a family when it comes to promotion. As the company grows, I feel that it benefits the authors as much as it does the publisher. Overall, it has been a good experience and I recommend Anaphora.” –Paul G. Varnas, Chicago chiropractor

“In publishing my memoir, Anna Faktorovich proved to be especially adept at designing a book with chapter epigraphs, five distinct parts, and many photographs.” –Bob Begiebing, PhD, founding director of the MFA in Fiction at Southern New Hampshire University

“Anaphora is the future face of publishing – reaching out and offering talented writers the opportunity, not to be squashed by BIG publishers, but an opportunity to share their unique voices with an audience of attentive, concerned, inquisitive readers. Anaphora is analogous to that special boutique down the street, offering those funky, delightful clothes you love  that you will never find in an off-the-rack major store. Anaphora’s titles set the standard for ’boutique’ publishing where that special book awaits that special reader.” –Philip Theibert, screenwriter and journalist for publications like The Wall Street Journal

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anna Faktorovich on the publication of my essay ‘Ted Kooser’s Art of Waiting’ in the Pennsylvania Literary Journal (an Anaphora journal) in Summer 2014. A simple query to Anna led to a productive dialogue and eventually to publication of the essay. I found Anna an ideal editor to work with, and I was quite satisfied with her editorial work on my essay. The publication was professionally done and on time, and that fact, in itself, merits praise.” –Jeffrey P. Beck, PhD, Dean of the Nathan Weiss Graduate College, Kean University

“Working with Anaphora on two books has been a pleasure. Anna Faktorovich
is quick, efficient, accurate, and professional in both the production
and post-production phases.” –Alexander Motyl, PhD, Professor at Rutgers University, Newark

“Anaphora Literary Press provides a business foundation for the books it selects for its catalog.  The press is willing to take on quality material that isn’t necessarily ‘mainstream’ because the press believes in promoting literature of worth.  Having taken on a work, the press ensures a quality product, innovative presentation, and marketing support.  I believe my own work benefited from the professional, business approach of the press and has probably sold more copies than it might have done with a different press.” –Aline Soules, Librarian and Faculty at the California State University, East Bay

“I have had the great fortune of being published through Anaphora Literary Press.  Dr. Faktorovich has been a delight to work with.  She had been extremely responsive to all my needs and questions.  I had specific ideas which I wanted included in the cover design and she was able to envision them and bring them together in a beautiful production that far surpassed my expectations.  She also accommodated without hesitation specific formatting requests I had for the text of my novel and I couldn’t be happier with the final product.  I highly recommend Anaphora Literary Press to new and existing authors.” –Roland C. Colton, JD, founder of the Colton Law Group
