JaCol Publishing started in the summer of 2012 publishing fiction and non-fiction journey books. Started by a writer in the industry, along with a business developer and entrepreneur, JaCol hit the ground running with four titles.
When JaCol initially set up the model, it was for just life stories–both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary or retro–the story of life as it evolved. However, things morphed into something more when life changed courses for the principle owners. We opted to expand our operation to value well written material over our niche.
We retargeted our author searches, seeking writers who had a firm grasp on solid writing, and whether the genre was horror, romance, sci-fi, children’s, mystery, or anything else, the emphasis was on quality. We added three cover artists, two assistant editors, a web team, and an admin assistant.
We don’t rule out any genre, but we do require that you go through our editing or proof services. In that way, we maintain the continuity of what we seek in our brand. We are flexible with our writers and include them on decisions of cover art, marketing, and branding. 2018 has proven to be a major uptick in our operations and our current docket has eight new titles slated before June, with the hopes of twenty new titles by 2019.
