Rebel ePublishers is an independent publishing company incorporated in Detroit, Michigan.

We produce high quality, finely designed ePub and Kindle eBooks for distribution to all major online eBook retailers at a competitive price. Our titles can be found at Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony, Diesel and Waterstones, to name a few.

We also produce a high quality, finely designed trade paper edition of our books. These are Publish-On-Demand (POD) titles and can be found on most online sites offering trade paper sales.

There has been some confusion over the meaning of Publish-On-Demand. Simply put, a POD book does not exist in a physical sense until someone orders it. It is then printed and mailed to the purchaser. It is a seamless process which is both environmentally and financially friendly with little or no impact on the customer.

However, there are some aspects of POD that an author should be aware of before submitting their work to a POD publisher such as Rebel. Bookstores, in general, will not order or stock POD titles so the likelihood of seeing your book on bookstore shelves is negligible. This is not due to any practice by POD publishers but rather due to the antiquated business practices on the part of the publishing industry as a whole.

Rebel fully supports Independent Bookstores and as the industry changes, perhaps these business practices will, of necessity, change over time.

  • My gripe is not with lovers of the truth but with truth herself. What succor, what consolation is there in truth, compared to a story? What good is truth, at midnight, in the dark, when the wind is roaring like a bear in the chimney? What you need are the plump comforts of a story. The soothing, rocking safety of a lie. - from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
  • Most writers are not quick-witted when they talk. Novelists, in particular, drag themselves around in society like gut-shot bears. - Kurt Vonnegut
  • The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them. - Mark Twain
  • Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue, you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - There's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book. - Christopher Morley
  • If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they're happy. - Dorthy Parker
  • Writing books is certainly a most unpleasant occupation. It is lonesome, unsanitary, and maddening. Many authors go crazy. - H. L. Mencken
  • You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world. - Ray Bradbury
  • All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives there lies a mystery. Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon which one can neither resist nor understand. - George Orwell
  • Teaching me to read was my mother’s paradisiacal gift. Libraries were paradise found. - From Stealing the Marbles by EJ Knapp
  • The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that the English language is as pure as a crib-house whore. It not only borrows words from other languages; it has on occasion chased other languages down dark alley-ways, clubbed them unconscious and rifled their pockets for new vocabulary. - James D. Nicoll
