ng Welcome to Copper Pen Press, LLC

We are a small, independent publisher and we intend to keep it that way. This means we must be very selective in what we publish. Our low publishing rate allows us to dedicate as much time as needed to each of our titles.

Imprint Absorbed

Copper Pen Press, LLC has decided to absorb its horror imprint, La Llorona Road. The move was made to streamline Copper Pen Press’ accusations and production. Copper Pen Press will now publish horror along with its mystery line. If you are on the La Llorona Road’s mailing list, we will merge that mailing list with Copper Pen Press’s list. If you are on Team La Llorona Road, you will be merged with Team Copper Pen Press.

Call for Submissions

Copper Pen Press is currently closed for submissions. We will open up reading again in September 2017. Please check back then.

Coming Soon:

What do you get when mystery and suspense authors from around the world pin stories set in a circus, carnival or freak show? Copper Pen Press is proud to announce the April release of Freakshow: Freakishly Fascinating Tales of Mystery and Suspense.

The fourteen stories in this anthology will take you back in time, as well as the present, to introduce to you freaks the likes you have never seen before. Stir in murder, mayhem, and robbery and you have a recipe for stories that you will not soon forget.

Step right up. Buy your ticket and take a ride like you have never been on before.

Join Team Copper Pen Press

Become a member of Team Copper Pen Press. We are seeking beta readers, ARC readers, and street team members.

A beta reader receives a pre-edited copy our book. Beta readers provide helpful insight on how to improve important elements of a story such as characters, setting, and plot. They also provide suggestions for spelling, grammar, and fact checking.

An ARC (Advanced Review Copy) reader is a person who receives a pre-published copy of a book in exchange for leaving an honest book review (typically on Amazon and/or Goodreads) just before, or once the book is available for distribution.

Street team members help promote a book by handing out materials such as bookmarks and fliers, posting reviews and book recommendations online, requesting the book from area libraries and bookstores, and spreading book info through word of mouth.

If you would like to become a member of Team Copper Pen Press, go to our Team Copper Pen Press registration page and fill out the online form.
