Lucid Paradox is a dynamic publishing company with a specific mission: to discover and champion literary artists who have a passion for writing, a talent for provoking thought, and a compelling story to tell. We are constantly on the lookout for authors whose unique voices resonate with us and our readers.
Once we’ve identified an author we’d like to collaborate with, our dedicated team gets to work. We meticulously edit manuscripts, transforming them into polished books that truly reflect the author’s vision. But our involvement doesn’t stop at publication.
At Lucid Paradox, we understand that a great book deserves to be read by as many people as possible. That’s why we also take on the responsibility of marketing the books we publish. Through strategic promotion and outreach, we aim to give our authors the recognition they deserve and their stories the wide audience they warrant.
We do accept manuscripts and make an effort to read all of them. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to read every manuscript, and we also cannot guarantee that we will be interested in publishing your manuscript as a refined book. Your manuscript should meet our criteria, and if it is selected, we will reach out to you or your literary agent for the next steps in the process.
Our primary focus is to publish a broad spectrum of fictional books, encompassing all major genres including but not limited to Science Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Romance, Westerns, Dystopian, and Contemporary. We have a deep commitment to storytelling and aim to bring diverse and compelling narratives to our readers. Although our main emphasis is on fiction, we are also open to exploring non-fiction, self-help, and poetry submissions. However, these will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Our decision to publish in these categories will be guided by the quality, originality, and market potential of each individual work.
Lucid Paradox follows the traditional publishing route by editing the book to look artistic yet professional and then marketing it for the author. The author won’t be charged for this service as Lucid Paradox will invest in the work and promote it according to our discretion.
At Lucid Paradox, we ensure that every author has a contract that outlines the terms of our collaboration. As per our agreement, we will receive a percentage of the book’s profits, but we will also cover the costs of editing, publishing, and marketing the book upfront.
The percentage of royalties and the distribution timeline will be determined through negotiation and specified in the contract agreement.
Each book is unique and may require a tailored approach. Factors such as genre, theme, writing style, and grammar will influence our process. However, we typically provide developmental, structural, editorial, line editing, copy editing, and proofreading services and ensure your book is ready for the next stage in the process.
