First of all it's pronounced "Ar'-kah-books" as in "Archetype" or "Architect," not "Archie-books" (for you comic book fans) not Arch eBooks, nor Arch Books. It's one compound word, not two. "Arche" is the Greek root for the word "First" as in First Editions, i.e. original works.

Our Hardcover First Editions are 1st quality,

format, with full four-color process dust-jackets. The ArcheBookZine is an
8.25" x 11" magazine-styled fully unabridged novels. Our eBooks are digital editions of our titles,
downloadable in Adobe Acrobat Reader (PDF) format, and also many of our titles
are made available to Amazon's Kindle library.
publishing goals are to introduce to the market a conservative number of
high-quality original works.
We maintain a highly professional and carefully "hand-crafted" approach to
the release of each and every new title. Each book goes through a
rigorous formal editorial, revision and production process. We don't
publish any works "as is" from an author.
Our books are distributed nationally by Ingram Books and Baker & Taylor, internationally by Bertram's in the UK, and via our own website for the US, Canada, and UK markets. Our books are also sold online via this website, as well as from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com and many other online retailers.
ArcheBooks Publishing was founded in 2003 by six-time novelist and senior information technology business executive Robert E. Gelinas, for the expressed purpose of giving talented new literary voices a new opportunity for their work to be professionally published an enjoyed by book lovers.
Since its inception, ArcheBooks has helped over 50 new authors bring almost 100 new titles to life, with the vast majority of those still In-Print and available and still selling years later. One of our titles, The Don Juan Con by Sara Williams, is under contract to Paramount Pictures Corp to be made into a major motion picture. Several ArcheBooks Titles have enjoyed Foreign Language Rights subsidiary deals, and ArcheBooks maintains in-country literary agent relationships in seven countries. ArcheBooks also makes sales of subsidiary paperback rights.
A "Launch" Publisher
ArcheBooks Publishing is a Small Press, but one that is focused on helping "launch" (and in some cases rekindle) writing careers. Where that career goes is not in our ability to control, and in many ways not even in the author's control. Ultimately, the retail consumer market gets the final vote on what we produce together. Our goal is to simply give our authors the best "chance" and a "credible running start" we can at making it as a Professional Novelist. We provide a wealth of information to our Authors, a lot of which can be found in our Author's Corner, as well as Formal Training (at no cost to our Authors).
