Prometheus Books, LLC.
Prometheus Books, LLC. (PBL) was founded on January 21, 2015 through the foresight and vision of Don E. Peavy, Sr. Mr. Peavy is a writer who has had published six books which did not make much money because the publishers refused to market the books in any type of meaningful way. He decided that the best way for him to retain editorial control over his work and also retain a larger share of the returns is to publish his own books as well as the books of others and to do so without the stigma of self-publishing and the costs and perils of vanity publishing. PBL will publish books that are unique and which may not be accepted by traditional publishers because they are too “experimental.”
PBL publishes books that represent creativity, knowledge, and improvement of human thinking and the human condition. Prometheus is a god from Greek Mythology who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to humans. As a consequence, Prometheus received a most horrendous punishment from Zeus. Many scholars argue that fire represents knowledge and that is the path followed by PBL whose logo represents the firebird descended from the heavens.
While PBL will not blaspheme the gods, it seeks writings that defy convention and so-called “genre formulas,” in favor of experimental fiction and non-fiction. PBL wants its readers to be entertained, challenged, then motivated to do good.
