Zumaya Publications LLC is an innovative new publishing company that strives to bring the best of fiction to the public. Zumaya officially launched in 2001 with the release of its first titles in print and PDF format. This year will bring a greatly expanded listing to suit all tastes.

With new publishers appearing and failing almost daily, Zumaya Publishing stands apart by limiting its list to only the highest quality titles. One of the advantages of the new digital publishing industry is that we are able to offer titles from talented authors previously overlooked by traditional markets or who write in genres transcending standardized categories of fantasy, science fiction, romance, mystery and others.

Zumaya's philosophy is simple. If it's a great, well-written story, we'll publish it.

Our books are not only available through several channels in the US, but also in Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

All Zumaya ebooks are offered free of digital rights management (DRM), which means no matter whom you buy it from, you can convert it to read on the reader or app of your choice.

Meet our authors and artists!

May 2016



Artist Bob Hobbs has shared some random images from his book "Moordragon's Illustrated Grimoire". The book will be mostly imagery with some text...the idea being it to look like an old witch's journal/book of magic spells. Though still a work in progress, so far it is looking lovely! And ZP will be publishing it!
