Isabella is a trailblazing publisher and author in Lesbian Fiction. Four years ago when she wrote her first book, it was rejected by 2 publishers. Isabella’s response to that was to launch her own publishing company. Since then she has published 8 additional books and won several writing awards. Her publishing company Sapphire Books now represents 19 additional authors who have also produced award winning books that reflect the lives of the lesbian community. Sapphire Books publishes romance, erotica, paranormal, mystery and intrigue, fantasy, and other fiction where the main characters are lesbians. When she isn’t busy building her publishing company, Isabella teaches at a community college and she lives in California with her wife and three sons.

Authors – REUTS Publications is Accepting Submissions!




Simply put: we’re authors. Our team has firsthand experience publishing with traditional publishers. We understand the processes and expectations, and we’re ready to step into those shoes. With this insight and our unique educational backgrounds, we hope to establish a new relationship between authors and their publishers.

Join the movement – Get REUTED in a good book.

We are currently working on our collection of titles, and are accepting submissions. We are currently accepting submissions for YA-Young Adult / NA-New Adult completed manuscripts.

REUTS aims to help those authors who have a fantastic story on their hands, but haven’t heard back from the agents or publishers they’ve queried. We also aim to help those authors considering self-publishing that don’t have the funds to hire designers and editors. However, this does not mean we’ll accept every submission that comes across our table.

REUTS will never charge you to publish your title (those are called vanity presses, and we’re not one of them), and we maintain above industry standard royalties. Our team isn’t in this business to get rich. We want the profits to go back to you, the authors– you put the long nights and hard work into the story, you deserve to reap the benefits.

P.S.  There is also an awesome giveaway on our Facebook page where two fans will win a full-manuscript critique by a REUTS Senior Editor, and a print-ready, custom book cover by REUTS Creative Director.


Alice In Writerland: A Writer’s Adventures
in the Ugly World of Publishing

Alice In Writerland:

A Writer’s Adventures in the Ugly World of Publishing
by Elisa Hategan

If you could have anything you wanted,
would you sell your soul for it?

ALICE IN WRITERLAND provides a shocking inside view of a world where pompous literary agents, sleazy managers and high-priced creative writing workshops have created an industry that is less interested in pursuing talent and more concerned with ripping off hopeful writers.

If following your dreams meant giving up everything you held dear, would you still do it?  Elisa Hategan started out as a debt-ridden poet who knew absolutely nothing about the publishing industry. On a whim, she applied for and won a scholarship to a prestigious creative writing program. Within a year she had transformed from complete newbie to professional writer, winning multiple art grants and being accepted to the most prestigious MFA program in the country. Better yet, she had the perfect agent and a manuscript that caught the attention of a Big Six publisher.

And then, somewhere along the way, it all went terribly wrong.

Written in the irreverent style of How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Elisa Hategan’s Alice in Writerland: A Writer’s Adventures in the Ugly World of Publishing is the heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant story of one woman’s attempt to make it as an author, all the while trying to figure out what that really means in the 21st century.

ALICE IN WRITERLAND is available for purchase on Amazon, Kobo and various books retailers.
