Moonbow Books

Moonbow Books is a Print, ebook, and Audiobook Publishing House

Our belief is if writers have the time, desire, and technical ability, publishers aren’t need. Writers can make as much or in some cases more money than traditionally published authors by doing it themselves. So why would we offer publishing services? For the same reason a lot of writers use services like Smashwords to distribute their eBooks. We accept a percentage of profit in return for things authors can’t or don’t want to do themselves. There are a lot of writers that want a one stop shop to getting their books out there. We believe that the writer should earn the majority of the money for their work. Publishing houses, distributors, and other middlemen should not be making most of the money from book sales. We will make an investment, and hope to make a reasonable return on that investment. But CoreyJF Publishing, LLC is there to serve the writer, not the other way around. Unlike a lot of small and vanity presses, we will never charge the writer for any editing, formatting, distribution, graphic design or other publishing related service. Should your submission be accepted, your contract will be individually and fairly negotiated.

Moonbow Books is looking for: Good writing in any genre. How to submit: Send us the complete manuscript with a cover letter. Save a tree and submit to [email protected]. If you must kill a tree, manuscripts need to be letter-quality and computer-generated. The manuscript should be on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, double-spaced, with at least 1" wide margins all around. Please use single sided pages and number your pages consecutively. Put the title of your novel/novella/novelette/short story/short story collection/poetry collection at the top of each page. Manuscripts should always be unbound. No handwritten material! Please only send us a disposable copy of your manuscript, which will be recycled in the event it is not a fit for Moonbow Books Manuscripts may be mailed to: Moonbow Books Submissions 12299 Greenleaf Ave Potomac, MD 20854

Mission: We take a service based approach to publishing. Our belief is if writers have the time, desire, and technical ability, publishers aren’t need. Writers can make as much or in some cases more money than traditionally published authors by doing it themselves. So why would we offer publishing services?

[07/20/14]   Looking for Beta Readers for Egret the Elephant:Volume 3. If you are interested in getting a sneak preview (without illustrations) let me know. It would be great if the beta readers have read Volume 1 and/or 2, but not required. But I would like Beta readers to be parents and willing to share the stories with your kids. Egret The Elephant

[02/04/14]   Join us for two events featuring the brilliant poet and advanced placement english literature teacher Akiva J. Savett. Savett has been publishing poetry for over 10 years and his work has appeared in a variety of prestigious literary journals. He is a chronic sufferer of Crohn's Disease and a committed father and husband. Much of his work is interested in opening the sacred; in each poem, Savett discovers and frees the luminous trapped within the chaos of his life. In the midst of his struggles with surgery, mortality, and the contingencies of parenthood, his voice shines brightly from the firmament of young and dynamic American poets.

Think You Don't Like Poetry? Read This Book!
By Ali G on August 28, 2013
Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase
I'm so thankful to have read this collection of poems. Mostly, I read novels and short stories, with the occasional book of poetry thrown in only if it comes highly recommended. One of my friends at college told me to read this because Savett is her former English teacher. I can't believe how much I loved it.

In poem after poem, Savett plays with language in surprising and ingenious ways, but he always gives the reader some accessible entry into meaning. Whether having a catch with his son, playing hide and seek with his daughter, visiting an old friend near the Gettysburg battlefield, or even flirting, tongue in cheek, with religious conversion so he can learn the names of trees and birds, Savett's poems are about everyday experiences and moments so many of us have stopped paying attention to. Some of the most powerful poems in the collection are about his experiences with pain and chronic health issues. Though never named in the book (his amazon author page mentions Crohn's Disease), references about and responses to illness provide a thread which ties this collection together---language and the book itself serve as preservation for Savett. In paying attention and displaying such a mastery of language, Savett is also preserving the fleeting precious moment and people he meets and loves. This book is short (it's a poetry chapbook) but incredibly sweet, and I look forward to reading more from him in the future. He is one of the few poets (Stephen Dunn, W.S. Merwin, Billy Collins, Kay Ryan) I will try and keep up with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Billy Collins Would Be Proud
By Haroot H. on August 22, 2013
Format: Paperback
In an interview with the PBS News Hour, two-time Poet Laureate Billy Collins was asked about the idea of making poems "accessible." He responded by saying, "I think accessible just means that the reader can walk into the poem without difficulty. The poem is not, as someone put it, deflective of entry. But the real question is what happens to the reader once he or she gets inside the poem? That's the real question for me, is getting the reader into the poem and then taking the reader somewhere because I think of poetry as a kind of form of travel writing."
Savett's collection successfully invites the readers into his poems. It is at this point of "entry" that his imagery guides the reader on a multi-sensory journey of daily life. However, instead of settling for mundane commentary, Savett challenges us to see and feel what we normally take for granted. If, as Collins so eloquently states; poetry is a "form of travel writing," then Savett's Preservation takes us on the simplest and most rewarding trip of all: a refreshing look at the people, moments and places that compose our existence.

The mundane made luxurious
By Naomi R Kieval on August 20, 2013
Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase
The author's love of the English language is evident from the first pages. Each poem presents an almost "stream-of-consciousness" account of daily life. These snippets of life as displayed in word-play and metaphor reveal much of the beauty of a life made up of family and naturalist spirituality; the author's health, family concerns, financial constraints, and more are on full display. The verse feels at home amid the early modern poets, beatniks, and absurists. Echoes of Ginsburg and cummings are clearly heard as well. Savett's Preservation is an impressive collection, and a great entree into modern free-verse.

Seriously beautiful
By Steph Herold on September 11, 2013
Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase
The poems in this collection are complex enough to sink your teeth into, yet also beautiful enough to read once and appreciate. Sprinkled with literary and medical references, the way Savett conveys a sense of awe in each poem surprised and delighted me. Some lines are so perfect they will slay you: "we are more like pencils / where each day scratches / us away / than pens, intact, / but leaking words" and others will have you cracking open your computer to google (who's Tiamat again?). I felt like I was playing hide and seek with these poems, sometimes getting a glimpse at their meaning, sometimes searching and searching. Even if I couldn't uncover exactly what I thought the poems meant, they evoked that ineffable feeling you get when you're reading something good and you allow yourself to get inside the feelings of the poem instead of trying to pinpoint what every word signifies. A really refreshing read--looking forward to many more!
