We have several big events going on over the next couple of months here at Whimsical Publications. Please feel free to share this information with others.
The biggest one is the expansion of the business in 2015 by bringing in more editors and another cover artist to assist with getting our books into the hands of the readers faster. The editors at WP are hard at work but the manuscripts are backing up. This will help reduce the backlog. As submissions increase, consideration will be given to adding more positions. WP is open for submissions.
We are looking for dedicated persons interested in working with our staff and authors in the following positions:
Editor – Three to four positions.
The editor will provide professional services of proofread, light edit, medium edit, and/or
heavy/developmental edit on manuscripts submitted to Whimsical Publications. Please send us your name, editing experience, and any other pertinent information you feel we should evaluate to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Contact WP page on the website. You will be sent a confirmation email informing you we have received your information. http://www.whimsicalpublications.com
Cover Artist – One position.
The artist must be able to provide a professional jpeg front and back cover design for
manuscripts assigned to them to our specifications and size. Artist will do his/her best to work with the authors to ensure the design meets their approval. Please send examples or a link to a portfolio of your work to email@example.com or through the Contact WP page on the site. You will be sent a confirmation email informing you we have received your information. http://www.whimsicalpublications.com
The WP administration will review applications on an ongoing basis until all the positions are filled.
Our Next event is a huge e-book sale during the entire month of December 2014. All our e-books will be marked down to $0.99 – $2.99, depending on the book. Readers can purchase them from both Amazon and our website at the discounted prices. The stories our authors weave can take you to far away places never imagined. With the Christmas holiday just around the corner, why not give a gift that will last a lifetime, through reading.
(We are in the process of putting together e-book box sets; they will not be a part of the sale.)
Our last event at Whimsical Publications is a fundraising cookbook for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
We are in the planning phase of a cookbook, with the proceeds going to Juvenile Diabetes
Research Foundation (JDRF) to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. If you have a recipe
of your own creation and you want to donate it to the book, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If chosen, your name will be place on the recipe page, giving you credit for it.
The recipes do not have to be diabetic in nature. They can be a main course, a dessert, a side dish, or have a holiday theme. They simply need to be yours. This book is for diabetics and non-diabetics alike.
The book will be available in both e-book and print Spring 2015. For the e-book, 100% of the proceeds will go to JDRF. For the print version, everything minus the cost of printing will be donated. That being said, there will be no royalties for those providing recipes. We want as much money as possible to go to this great cause: the end of Type 1 diabetes.
For those who do not have something for the book but want to help, you can donate or join our team as a virtual walker and help us reach our goal of $1000. WP has been a proud supporter of JDRF since 2006, and we will be participating again with the 2015 walk. We’d love to have you.

Our goal is to provide tasty cooking ideas while helping to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. We hope you will join us!
