ACOA is slowly growing, with more material released nearly every month. In the upcoming months we'll have several new books and authors, bringing you an interesting array of fiction and nonfiction books related to writing. We have recently acquired the rights to publish many of the 33 Mistakes for Writers series which has been part of Holly Lisle's shop. This will allow the books to be presented in many ebook formats.
A Conspiracy of Authors (ACOA) is an invitation-only publisher. We do not accept submissions of any kind. Instead, ACOA will seek out a limited number of authors and will present their work in both electronic and print (when appropriate) formats. We will list works published by ACOA as well as those by other publishers so that you do not have to go hunt for other works by the author. In this respect, we will combine author marketing with publishing so both can benefit the reader.
