About Imaginary Brother
Imaginative Indie Imprint
We knew early on that we would need to form a company if our the first series we wrote as co-authors went as well as we’d hoped. We outlined Commando and the broad strokes of the Royal Marine Space Commandos universe in late 2017. By March we’d published the first book. Both of us had our own books out, in fantasy worlds, and they weren’t doing well, though we could see the potential.
Commando however, was an immediate success. Sales began to climb and have grown with each new book. By the end of July, we’d signed with Podium Publishing for the audiobooks which are expected to release in late 2018.
Once that happened, we knew we’d have to head toward setting up our own small publishing company.
The name Imaginary Brother hints at a few things. There’s an amusing anecdote from our first indie author conference, in February 2018 at Runnymede. Everything we do is based on imagination and, of course, we are brothers.
What’s the future for Imaginary Brother?
We’re expanding the RMSC universe by bringing on other authors to collaborate on series within the universe. The first author to write in the RMSC universe is Paul Teague, who has written the By Strength and Guile series, about a unit of special forces soldiers dealing with a new threat to humanity.
Our goal is to provide our readers with a lot more stories that are set in our universe because there’s an awful lot more too it than we can reasonably write ourselves. We want to combine writing, marketing and production strengths with other authors to bring great stories to as many readers as possible.
If you are interested in collaborating, feel free to let us know but we’re not issuing a call for submissions at the moment so please don’t send any manuscripts. You’ll need to have met as at a conference, or have some prior relationship with us and more importantly, you’ll need a proven track record as an author.
