About Us

Z Girls Press is proud to publish a variety of creative fiction. Our authors get hands-on guidance every step of the way from book idea to editing to final publication. We help authors turn their passion, expertise or idea into an engaging book.

We work very closely with you to make sure your manuscript is the absolute best it can be for your target audience. Through our professional associations, we can create the perfect marketing plan by taking advantage of the many programs and resources available to us to get your books into readers hands.

Hybrid publishers behave just like traditional publishing companies in all respects, except that we publish books using an author-subsidized business model, as opposed to financing all costs ourselves. In exchange, we return a higher-than-industry-standard share of sales proceeds to the author. In other words, a hybrid publisher makes income from a combination of publishing services and book sales. When your book sells is when we make a profit, it is truly a win/win business model.
