More About TZPP: The Zharmae Publishing Press is a Pacific Northwest based book publisher, dedicated to producing the best genre fiction from around the country with a particular focus on science fiction and fantasy. Zharmae is a living, breathing idea of what the future of book publishing can and should be. TZPP is devoted to literary works of depth and detail as well as the broader knowledge and exchange of ideals that can be conveyed from the reading and analysis of fiction. TZPP was created with the notion that a publishing firm can and should be hip, youthful, and accessible; as well as focused on author development with regards to both the art and science of writing. Zharmae is the result of this ongoing effort.
Zharmae focuses on category fiction with a heavy emphasis on artistry through prose, while staying true to the formulaic, sensationalistic, melodramatic, and sentimental nature normally exhibited in such types of fiction. We are committed to producing work featuring elevated, poetic, and idiosyncratic prose that defy reader expectations, or which go beyond the normal plot scope associated with genre fiction.
Though some might categorize Zharmae as a small press (and be correct), we do not see our size as a detriment, but rather as our main strength. This is what allows us to focus our energies on developing fantastic writers into brilliant authors. We are able to produce a quality of work rarely seen in many of today's mainstream offerings. Our purpose, as with all businesses, is the bottom line; however, we are not out to produce cookie cutter plots and books - the simple reason for our existence is to produce magnificent novels, period.
