Hello,

I am in the process of completing a work of fiction. Nothing serious, just your stand sword and sandal epic.

I was wondering if there are any EU or US publishers I could get hold of, who wouldn't mind publishing from a non-EU/non-US author. Of course, the entire work is in English. Queen's, that too.

A website for the same would also do.

Probably not quite what you're looking for, but I just happened to hear about this the other day. An online PDF->Hardcopy publishing service developed by Hewlett-Packard. Meant for magazines, but maybe they'd do novels too if you can't find a more mainstream publisher..

hmmm.....

this service could be perfect for creating and distributing an RCE magazine...

Costs are, however, a bit high - 0,20c page means 20$/copy for 100 pages. One would then need aid/sponsor/ads or whatever, and not for few moneys (consider 1'000 copies = 20k$ required).
Maybe Print-On-Demand would suit better, but there would still be the need to make the mag bought by universities and such (visibility, name/brand).
hmmmm...
Going on paper for RCE is probably not yet possible...

Aimless,

maybe it's better yet to find an US editor, which of course works with a publishing house (either famous, or not, doesn't' matter).

It's best to start with those nameless publishing houses, since the big ones pretty much has high demands.. just look at the story of the author behind harry potter (autobiography)... that should give you some inspiration!

good luck with your epic story!
