Whimsical Publications was established in 2006 as a Limited Liability Company and is
located in sunny Florida. The company specializes in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal,
Horror, Mystery, Suspense, Romance, Young adult, Western and Historical. We are open
to other genre as long as the story is well written.
As a small, independent publisher, we take the time to work with our authors. They are
an important part of the publishing process and are included throughout. From their
input during the designing of their covers, to keeping their "voice" while the editing
process is completed, it takes teamwork to make a manuscript into a book. Here at WP,
we love teamwork.
We are a royalty paying publisher and our books are available in both print and e-books
simultaneously. Authors are never charged to have their works published.
A limited number of titles are added each year. Our novels are from established authors
as well as new, undiscovered talent. Each one writes their story with heart and soul.
