At Undaunted, we’re rejecting the status quo. We’re fed up with the gatekeepers of traditional publishing and self-publishing “service providers,” wolves in sheep’s clothing who take advantage of indie authors. We want to provide you with a way to publish your work to the world. That’s why Undaunted Publishing is going about things differently. We’re combining the best aspects of traditional and self-publishing to give the power back to you, the author.
Becoming a successful author is a daunting endeavor. It requires a nearly endless supply of dedication and hard work, grinding day after day. Anyone who tells you differently is trying to sell you something. (Another shout-out to all you “service providers” out there!) As indie authors ourselves, we know what it takes to be successful and we want to help make all those long hours pounding away at a keyboard worth it. We want to help you share your story with the world.
The self-publishing community is a tight-knit group and Undaunted is no different. We believe we’re all in this together and we want to help you succeed. It won’t be easy, but you can find success in the writing game and we’re going to help you along the way. For some, the road may be longer than for others, but in the end, we’re convinced you’ll appreciate the journey.
That’s what makes Undaunted different. We’re committed to reading every submission we receive. We know that sounds crazy — impossible even — but that’s our mission. From there, we’ll help you get published. For some, that means editing, polishing and publishing. For others, it might mean hours and hours of rewriting and revising, but if you’re willing to put in the work, we’re willing to give you a shot.
The winds of change are blowing across the publishing world. A new order is being established. It’s time for indies everywhere to take a stand. It’s time for authors to write a new chapter in our profession.
Undaunted is a team effort. At our heart, we share the same dream: to tell our stories to the world. We’re the perfect choice for anyone who wants the support of a publishing house while maintaining the freedom of an indie author. We publish and market our author’s books and teach them the tools to evolve their writing from passion to profession.
