Why I Started Sable Press

I started Sable Press because I want to be part of the solution that pushes back against institutional racism in book publishing. There are many stories written by authors of color that are rejected because the story is about a non white group of people, explores a non white culture or is written by a non white person.

Art is life and if we continue to deny the art of non white people, humanity as a whole loses.

The stories of racism in the book publishing industry is not new, however it is not getting any better unless we do something about it. The entrenced traditional publishers around the world refuses to widen their publishing umbrella, either because they don’t want to, they are afraid or they don’t know how.

Regardless, it doesn’t change the facts.

We need diverse books and Sable Press was founded to fill the gap.

Sable Press is a royalty paying book publisher that does not require the author to pay for any portion of publishing their book. At this time we do not pay advances, however we do not rule it out in the future.

We are a book publishing startup passionate about bringing diverse authors and stories to the market.
