Rebel e Publishers is an independent publishing company incorporated in Detroit, Michigan. The Rebel e vision is to serve both authors and readers by publishing quality books and offering these to international sales and distribution networks, replacing the traditional brick and mortar business with both virtual management as well as a virtual shop front.
The initial focus of Rebel e was to develop electronic-format books, as these were becoming popular through the accessibility of the worldwide web and the variety of affordable e-readers being offered in the market. With the ever-increasing environmental pressures, this was considered a responsible option. Due to reader / author interest, however, a Print on Demand option was added, with the view that minimum printing is still a fair environmental compromise until such time as the reading public convert to electronic book stores and e readers.
Rebel ePublishers are committed to three principles:
- Providing a space where authors can market their work to the world at large with fair returns for themselves;
- Supporting the reading community by providing high quality, reasonably priced books; and
- Supporting the environmental movement by an electronic book selection process, and the use of non-toxic products in the production of our eBooks. Rebel e’s Print on Demand partner has received Chain of Custody certification from The Forest Stewardship Council and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
Rebel e promotes authors through an evolving network of reading and reviewing communities, as well as through media outlets which have a literary focus.
The Rebel Team:
The Rebel Team comprises an independent affiliation of specialists who have come together under the brand name of Rebel ePublishers, to make their skills (book development, editorial, design, promotional, marketing and distribution) available to the authors whose books are selected for publishing.
Reward to contributors is either by subcontracted deliverable or through profit share based on the sale of books. Rebel e Publishers has engaged an independent accounting firm to ensure independence in the financial management of the company.
