What's Radiant Crown Publishing?

Welcome and thank you for visiting our page! RCP, the publishing wing of Cherubim Scribes, Inc. (www.cscribes.com), is a micro-press that publishes dark, diverse, and subversive fiction and poetry. We focus on horror, fantasy, and science-fiction with a dash of romance.

Why Patreon?

Our speculative magazine and upcoming sister publication Selene Quarterly (www.selenequarterly.com) are some of the few paying markets for fiction and poetry, with an added focus on lifting up marginalized voices in each issue rather than special issues, and we want to keep it that way. We also pay our editorial staff a nominal rate of $25 to show appreciation for a job that is often unpaid, utterly overwhelming, and the lifeblood of literary magazines. With patreon, we hope to find yet another avenue to bring in revenue on top of our digital/print subscriptions, and unrelated projects under the RCP umbrella.


Goals?


We want to fund a podcast and audio-book program to reach a wider audience and become more accessible to the visually impaired. Likewise, we want to shift towards small print runs of 250 copies or fewer of each issue to reduce the cost of the print versions which are currently print-on-demand. As of right now, we're focusing on covering at least half of our overhead costs for each issue of Helios Quarterly (www.heliosquarterly.com) which includes acquiring cover art, making Eos•Quarterly pro-rates at $0.06 a word, obtaining and renewing a UPC, and paying contributors.
