Leaf by Leaf
hybrid publishing from Cinnamon Press
The aim of Leaf by Leaf is to support our publishing programme with a small number of select books that allow authors to pay a contribution for services such as editing, design and distribution. It's a model that several indie presses are doing well, providing value without charging ridiculous amounts and enabling more authors to find a platform without resorting to low quality services.
We want to ensure we can go on publishing our core list whatever the future brings and we can help to do that by also helping more authors into print.
The imprint is a collaborative venture with Rowan Tree Editing, run by run by Rowan Fortune, who also mentors students for us and worked as a Cinnamon editor for many years.
In its first year, Leaf by Leaf has successfully helped fifteen authors see their dream projects into print, from poetry collections to memoir and novels. We are now open to submissions to publish with Leaf by Lead in 2022 — the submission period closes on 30 September, 2020. We will be reading submissions as they come in and contacting successful authors by early January, at the latest.
You'll find lots of information below and a form for submitting your manuscript but if you have any questions, email Rowan and we'll get back to you.
