What is a Hybrid Publisher?

Hybrid publishers provide a lot of the services that traditional publishers provide while giving the author royalties on their book sales and still allowing the author 100% ownership and control of the work. The author signs a contract with the publisher and pays for professional publishing, editing, cover design, et cetera.

The author also has the option to pay for marketing and different types of distribution through the publisher. It’s often more effective than marketing and distribution are done by the author since the publisher already has connections in the industry.

Rebel Press is a hybrid publisher.  What sets us apart from other publishers is that we are selective about the titles who choose to represent.  For titles we feel have real market potential, we offer to contribute to the cost of publishing with our Publishing Subsidy Program.  

This exclusive program is designed to subsidize a percentage of the publishing and promotion cost in exchange for a small percentage of the royalties. Our aim is to reinforce our partnerships and vested interested in the ongoing success of an author’s book.

Rebel Press is a unique enterprise, offering authors a single source solution for every aspect of publishing. Within our carefully researched publishing model, we have created a comprehensive and diverse set of services, choreographed by an experienced staff dedicated to every author’s dream of presenting their book to the world. We work hard to offer our authors great organization, guidance, and a clear path through the confusing and often frustrating process of publication. We are dedicated to every author’s vision while protecting their ability to maintain full artistic control of their book, its rights, and its royalties.


Rebel Press offers six types of editing: proofread, copy edit, substantive edit, developmental edit, rewrite or work for hire. You will work with our publishing team to determine which editing service is best for your manuscript.
