A new kind of publisher devoted to fabulous fiction for middle grades, young adults and new adults. We bring great new stories to life with an experienced editing team and designers who love books. Get reading now!
Our goal is to publish shove-the-book-into-your-friend’s-hands and say, “You have to read this!” books. We are a worldwide English language publisher based in Canada.
We are a traditional publisher—we vet and edit manuscripts, design and market books—but we are much more. Rebelight seeks and nurtures new writers, tackles projects the big guys won’t touch, opens up opportunities for experienced authors to venture into new genres, and offers author friendly contracts.
We were traditionally published writers who surfed the publishing world’s waves of change, and lamented with new writers facing dwindling opportunities and with experienced writers locked into familiar genres. We saw great manuscripts overlooked and authors subjected to unfair contracts. The changing publishing landscape has become our opportunity.
We believe by giving you amazing stories that you will fall in love with them too. So crack the spine on one of our books—it’ll blow your mind. We promise.
I have much to be thankful for this year, and Rebelight is very high on my list. It's a thrill to be at the starting gate of this great new adventure with such qualified people. Thank you for welcoming me and for providing wonderful team support.Larry Verstraete, award winning author of multiple books for young people www.larryverstraete.com
