Who Are We?

woman-690216_640Macavelli Press is a global publishing company that gives a voice to new and existing writers of all colors, nationalities, and sexual orientations. These writers tell stories of fiction and non-fiction that permeate their world. We aim to expose our readers to the diverse and unique ideas, philosophies and opinions of our authors, as expressed in the sentiments of their writings.

Furthermore, in light of the fact that publishing houses actually read fewer than two percent of the manuscripts they receive, we at Macavelli work from the premise that a lot of well- written novels are unjustifiably turned down. Therefore, we are partial to signing writers who have been rejected by mainstream publishers.

If you have found your manuscript rejected by publishing houses like a myriad of other writers, Macavelli may present another opportunity for you to realize your dream. If you are a novice writer, an independent publisher, self-published author,small press, or mid-sized publisher, you’ve come to the right place! If your passion is to write fiction, poetry, non-fiction, science fiction or simple guides for choosing different types of gifts or the best places to have a rest, Macavelli happens to be your first stop. The bottom line is that we understand the frustrating and intimidating experiences writers frequently encounter when trying to publish their first manuscript. They’re attempting to enter into what can seem like a “literary insiders-only club,” and acceptance into this “association” can be challenging.

At Macavelli, we appreciate the discipline it takes a writer to complete their manuscript. With this said, we form alliances with writers from around the globe, from all walks of life, by partnering with them in their publishing pursuit and assisting them in manifesting their goals and objectives of putting forth their work. At the same time, we are fulfilling our editorial mission—giving a voice to writers from around the globe who are writing about things that are dear to their hearts. Consequently, we are lifting the veil off little known facets of life and expose them to the world.
