Imagination with no limits

Getting a sci-fi or fantasy novel published was once seemingly a fairy tale. Mythical dragons and dystopian androids simply weren’t as popular as they are today, and most traditional publishing companies weren’t willing to take a chance on such imaginative genres. Even “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” was rejected twelve times before finally making it past manuscript.

Thankfully, more options are available nowadays. And as self-publishing continues to develop, authors can fulfill their dream of taking their fantasy or sci-fi novels to print, all on their own.

“BookBaby was so honest and loyal. It was the perfect place to go.” — Sarah Jessica Curtis

Readers have fallen in love with vampires, braved the chilling touch of White Walkers, and journeyed across Middle-earth.

Now it’s your turn to take them on an adventure.

The Long Cold Ride

“BookBaby was so easy to work with, and the quality of the final product totally exceeded my expectations. Something about holding that first printed copy in your hands after all that hard work, there’s absolutely nothing like it."

- Jesse H. Gray, The Long Cold Ride
