GUIDANCE FOR ARTISTS
We are working hard to establish a solid reputation within the publishing industry, and we are on the lookout for artists whose unique styles will stand out from the crowd.
As a rule we are looking for artists who can commit to multiple covers, except in the case of our Speculicious imprint, for which each book will require an author-selected cover. In addition we are currently exploring non-fiction and gamebooks.
If you are interested in working with us please:
– email firstname.lastname@example.org
– providing a brief introduction (no more than 100 words);
– supply a portfolio link;
– provide sample cover art from a previous project;
– confirm that you are able to supply layers and finished artwork in editable .JPEG and .PDF (to a minimum requirement of 300dpi)
– provide an estimate of how quickly you could turn around such a cover
Please note: Artists will not usually be responsible for written content or titling.
Our standard term is a 10% net royalty for cover art backed up by a no-displacement agreement (i.e. we will not change the cover art to re-market a book). This typically covers ebook and paperback book covers. There is some room for negotiation if these terms are not acceptable.

WORKING WITH US
There are two bottlenecks to Fringeworks’ output: the covers and the editing. Right now we’re in need of new editors or co-editors to bring forward some of our planned titles.
Ideally we’re looking for experienced editors who would be happy to take on some of our planned books. Experienced authors who understand the principles of editing will also be considered.
If you fancy editing but haven’t done it before, drop us a line and we can chat. It’s hard work, and it’s not for everyone, but it can be a rewarding add-on to your existing skills.
FREELANCE ROLE-PLAYING DESIGNERS
We’re turning one of our properties – The Moriarty Paradigm – into a fully fledged pen and paper role-playing game. It will be a team-built kickstarter project, so for this one we need expressions of interest and CVs.
Ever written a gamebook? Ever fancied writing one? Write in a genre that desperately needs a gamebook but doesn’t have one? Drop us a line outlining your experience and any ideas you might have, and all will be revealed.
Last, but by no means least, we’re still looking for bookzine editors to take forward our plans for some occasional periodicals.
All responses to this advert should be sent to email@example.com, and should be accompanied by a clear expression of what you are interested in, plus a short Biography or a copy of your CV.
