|About Permuted Press|
Permuted Press was established in 2004 with a modest goal: to produce a single, high-quality zombie anthology titled The Undead. From this simple goal grew a publishing company that has published over 80 titles targeting the apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, and survival horror fiction markets. Permuted Press has relied heavily on the power of the internet and advances in publishing technology to establish itself as one of the best known publishers in the apocalyptic niche. Permuted has utilized print on demand (POD) technology, eBooks, and grassroots internet marketing to catch and cater to its ever growing fan base.
Permuted’s greatest successes include Plague of the Dead by Z.A. Recht (originally published online), John Dies at the End by David Wong (now from St. Martin’s, movie coming in 2013), Day by Day Aramgeddon by J.L. Bourne (originally self-published), Ex-Heroes and 14 by Peter Clines, and The Infection by Craig DiLouie.
In mid-2008, Permuted was approached by Borders/Waldenbooks with special stocking terms. This allowed Permuted to continue producing its releases with POD technology, while bringing its special brand of apocalyptic mayhem to fans nationwide.
In mid-2009 Permuted entered a co-publishing venture with Simon & Schuster to release co-branded editions of some of Permuted’s most popular titles as well as new, original titles contributed by Permuted. Initially set to include 7 titles, the venture has since grown to include 12 titles with releases scheduled into 2012.
As of late 2009, most Permuted new releases debut in both trade paperback and eBook formats; with over 50% of the total catalog available in eBook edition for Kindle, nook, iBooks, and other formats. With the swift growth in the eBook market, many Permuted eBooks outsell their trade paperback editions by 2 to 1 or more.
In late 2010, Permuted inked a deal with Audible.com to produce audiobook editions of 11 of its most popular titles in a special event during summer 2011. Audible.com continues to produce audibook editions of most Permuted releases, with Peter Clines 14 reaching the #1 bestseller spot in the Audible.com sci-fi/fantasy category in mid-2012.
As of late 2012, Permuted has a Facebook account with nearly 5,000 friends, a Facebook Page with nearly 3,000 Likes, a Twitter account with over 2,400 followers, and a message board with over 700 members who have posted at least once.
