The Aim of Red Rattle BooksRed Rattle Books specialises in quality crime and horror. It is dedicated to publishing literary classics but in unique editions that offer fresh perspectives from experts. It will also publish contemporary crime and horror from new authors. Occasionally, it will publish non-fiction books in order to provide a wider and more unusual definition of horror.
When Red Rattle Books publishes a literary classic it procures critical essays from academic experts that offer fresh insights into the original text. These omnibus editions are designed to appeal to general readers, other academics and students.
Red Rattle Books is also keen to support unpublished authors. It will publish new crime and horror books by previously unpublished authors. Occasionally, Red Rattle Books will publish books from other genres if the book has exceptional merit and Red Rattle Books wishes to develop the author.
Red Rattle Books pays 7.5% royalty on book sales to the author. All authors will receive, prior to publication, an advance based on potential royalties.
