- Fractured Mirror Publishing -
Fractured Mirror Publishing is an independent press that focuses on speculative fiction for YA and adult audiences. We strive to publish high-quality speculative fiction for audiences that challenge the way we look at the world around us, which prompts us to ask the questions "What If?" and "Why Not?".
We are dedicated to the process of bringing our authors' novels to life, and we are committed to producing literature that is unique, vibrant, and makes you think.
Emily Kudeviz is the founder and editor-in-chief of Fractured Mirror Publishing. She is an avid reader of fantasy and YA literature, and she has worked as an English teacher for middle school, high school, and college. She has a Master's degree in Children's Literature as well as one in English.
Throughout the years, she has worked on literary magazines and journals. She has also taken courses in publishing and book production throughout her graduate work.
As the daughter of a printer, she likes to joke that ink runs through her veins. This publishing house has been a life-long dream of hers, and she cannot wait to work with authors as they work towards their goals!
