New Release: 09/20/2021
The majority of our manuscripts are unsolicited submissions coming from unpublished authors. But as activity increases, the need for works may surpass our established circle of writers. As unsolicited manuscripts are received, our editors sift through the unsolicited manuscripts to identify manuscripts of sufficient quality or revenue potential. Once a work is accepted, traditional publishing platform may be considered and a contract to purchase the intellectual property rights and an agreement on rates will be negotiated.
When you publish with Village Tales Publishing, you are a part of our family.
Traditional and Self-Publishing Services for all genres and formats.
As we are a boutique-style publishing house ideally placed for satisfying the needs of unpublished and published authors by utilizing the latest technology in the production of publication as an alternative to the larger publishing house. We seek to discover and publish new visionary authors in Africa, though we know that there are many writers out there, who want to get their work published.
We welcome all authors!
