I-BeaM Books is an independent publishing house that publishes books printed on paper, just like they used to be before e-books existed. 

Poetry is our first love, and the Y-Knot Poetry Series has been established to publish books of poetry that should have been published long ago.

We’re fond of fiction, too, don’t get us wrong, particularly the more avant-garde stuff. The Y-Knot Fiction Series handles destined-to-be-classic collections of short stories. And if we discover any novels that need to be preserved on paper, we’ll publish those, as well.

To make online sales almost as nice as a real bookstore, we’re working with our friends Spineless Books to maintain a shared shop called Spybeam Books. Try it out, but you’ll have to provide your own used bookstore fragrance. For now. Occasionally, brick-and-mortar sites where an I-BeaM book can be found will also be listed. If you can, please patronize those stores before using the Spybeam Books online option.

We are not accepting unsolicited submissions at this time. Thus we cannot guarantee the response, return, or respectful handling of submissions sent by people who either did not read or consider this statement.
