At HiveMind Press we are a community of passionate creators, each striving to take control of our work and revolutionize the publishing industry. By putting the tools in your hands, we offer you a high-quality, supportive platform to achieve your creative goals. As a Creator with HiveMind, you journey is all about continuous learning, creative accountability, and unyielding support.
Why Are We Different?
We take pride in offering affordable, yet high-quality publishing services, as-well-as international sales, and distribution channels. Our Creative Community helps writers stay engaged with creativity and maintain the consistency necessary to complete their projects. Our focus is to provide the support and direction necessary for creators to complete their projects and accelerate their creative mission.
Our vision is to revolutionize the publishing industry by placing the tools in the hands of the creator. We aim to change the perception of trade publishing and elevate the positive perception of supported self-publishing. We focus on helping creators understand their success metrics and creating achievable action plans towards their goals. In other words, we're all about helping you take control of your creative future!
HiveMind Press is a unique approach that combines the flexibility and creative control of self-publishing with the quality and support typically found in traditional publishing. This hybrid method allows creators to retain control over their work while benefiting from professional guidance and services, resulting in a polished, high-quality product.
With the growth of digital tools and platforms, creators now have the opportunity to take control of their creative process and publishing journey. At HiveMind Press, we've developed our platform to facilitate this revolution. We provide the tools, resources, and community to help you navigate the publishing world, taking your work from a humble project to a published book.
HiveMind Creative Community
HiveMind Press is underpinned by a simple, yet powerful belief: we are all united in the creative process. This sentiment transcends the content, genre, or medium of creative works, as we embrace a shared passion for creation and expression. Our community is rooted in collaboration over competition, celebrating individual successes and championing the notion that success shared is a compounding phenomenon. Each achievement by a HiveMind author is viewed as a collective victory, driving us to share, support, and celebrate together.
Our primarily Discord-hosted platform facilitates this vibrant, collaborative ecosystem. It is here that authors can exchange ideas, seek feedback, navigate challenges, and share triumphs in real-time. Further extending our reach, we also have satellite groups on other platforms, accommodating even more creators. This dynamic network, operating across multiple platforms, provides a supportive and engaging environment that fosters growth and collaboration for all our members.
For those seeking to transition into trade publishing, our platform serves as a stepping stone. By using our services, you can produce professional-quality work that could catch the eye of traditional publishers. You retain the rights to your work, allowing you to pitch to publishers whenever you're ready. We also offer a range of services to help you learn about the industry, develop your craft, and effectively market your book, skills that are invaluable in the trade publishing world.
If you're not looking for large-scale distribution and instead want to create a beautiful book for a smaller audience, we've got you covered as well. Our print-on-demand service is perfect for creating a limited run of your book. There's no need for a big investment in a large print run; you can order as few or as many copies as you need.
At HiveMind Press, we understand that every creator has unique needs and aspirations. That's why our platform is designed to be flexible and adaptable, to suit you no matter where you are in your creative journey or what your goals are. Join us, and let's make your creative dreams a reality together.
We are committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all members of our HiveMind community. We understand life's uncertainties and are flexible in accommodating life's complexities. The wellbeing of our creators is always our top priority.
Creators Eat First
We believe in a majority share for creators. Our creators always receive a majority of the profit for their work, processed promptly. The only delays are from processing time.
We prioritize excellence over perfection. We encourage a culture of high standards, and the pursuit of continuous improvement, rather than expecting perfection from the outset.
We aim to excite, unite, and inspire. Our goal is to foster an environment where exciting ideas thrive, and our systems unite creators in a way that enables them to inspire others.
We recognize that successful production requires diligence. We believe in careful and dedicated effort to ensure consistent forward progress without delay.
We believe that everyone deserves a voice and to be listened to. This ethos extends to both our internal team and our creators. We respect differing perspectives and treat everyone with openness and respect.
Passion is essential, especially for creation. We aim to nurture the passionate creators we work with and to match their enthusiasm in our responses.
We encourage questioning, challenging, and sharing of opinions. The difference between active criticism and passive complaint is the intent to act; we value those who propose solutions, not just identify problems.
Clarity & Action
We value clear goals and focused execution. We encourage our creators to define their objectives, identify their milestones, and concentrate on the tasks that move them towards their goals, excluding all distractions.
At HiveMind Press, we embrace the modern ethos of work flexibility, acknowledging that creativity is not confined to a nine-to-five schedule or a specific location. Our platform is built on the principles of freedom and autonomy, enabling our creators to work from wherever they find inspiration and at times when their creativity flows most freely. We understand that the creative process varies greatly from one individual to another. Some may be morning people, others night owls; some may thrive in bustling coffee shops, while others prefer the tranquility of a home office.
We trust our creators to take ownership of their projects, respecting their capacity to manage their time and resources effectively. By doing so, we empower them to work in ways that best align with their personal circumstances, productivity patterns, and creative rhythms. This trust is the backbone of our relationship with our creators. We are here to support, not control, understanding that it is our creators who are best equipped to bring their visions to life.
