The publishing portion of our company is responsible for the creation and curation of written works. We focus on key demographics that are seeking fresh faces from a variety of backgrounds. We look for engaging titles, that celebrate life and educate readers on the various subject matter. If you’re looking to break into publishing we are the house for you. We are a hybrid publisher that uses POD [Print on Demand] in combination with traditional printing, and ebooks. Our primary market is Amazon and Apple Books. We have a niche following that allows authors to gain readers from unlikely places. We provide full publishing services without upfront costs to the author. We take all the risk, in marketing, advertising costs and publication costs. We do not expect or ask for money from authors, instead, we work with traditional royalty style compensation with the focus on the author benefitting higher than the publisher.
The Three Little Sisters LLC is focused on the mission of making books that showcase voices that would be otherwise ignored by mainstream publishers. Our mission is to make quality publications for readers of all ages. We apply our background in law, publishing, editing and more to give a holistic approach to publishing. We are a family-owned by three sisters and a silent partner that provide all the day to day work and financial support.
We are an independent inclusive mission-driven press. What does that mean? It means that we treat each book as important, and each author as a partner in our little house. We focus on the detailed aspects of publishing such as the style, format, and font, creating eye-catching titles for readers of all ages. We work on a cycle of release, in which new titles are time-released along with existing back titles in a cycle that provides everyone with seamless production.
We take manuscripts from their humble beginnings and launch them into a fully formed book. We are not a vanity press, there are no fees to submitting your book, nor are any fees charged for our services. We run our company just like the big publishing houses do, however, we focus on providing each author with the care and attention that they deserve. We pride ourselves on having an open and transparent method in all of our dealings.
Our staff comes from all walks of life. They are here because they want to work with a company that focuses on independent voices and supports community writers. Most of our illustrators are interns who come here to build a portfolio for future work. Our staff supports indie publishers like us because we are a focused on passion over profit.
To provide quality books that inspire, create, and educate. We support and promote titles that showcase voices from minority communities and lgbtq+. We publish both new and seasoned authors. Our goal is to give our authors a company that they can be proud of, one that focuses on providing readers with something unique, meaningful, and profound. Storytelling is a cornerstone of TLS, inside every book is a piece of an author’s soul expressed upon a written page. We combine both digital and hand made illustrations in our kids’ line to give books that little bit extra.
We provide the full range of services that you would expect at any publishing house, provided by a close-knit team that is dedicated to your success. Our difference is that our team works with our authors to ensure their project meets their desires and dreams with our standards and requirements. We don’t require authors to have an agent or to have a large stack of manuscripts to submit, you can be either new to the market or a seasoned author who wants to experience the gold standard of care by a publisher with heart.
