THIS PAGE IS A PERPETUAL WORK-IN-PROGRESS, BECAUSE… WELL, WE JUST KEEP WINNING AWARDS.
LAST UPDATE: December 26, 2016.
The statement – “Quality is Priority #1!” – is not just our slogan; it’s our ironclad commitment to you, our valued readers.
One of the most surefire ways for readers to know that a book is a high-quality, professional product, is to examine the awards it’s won. Of course, awards are difficult to come by due to the broad and fierce competition, so that’s certainly not the only measure of quality. Another would be the average review rating at a retail site such as Amazon. And of course, the final judge of quality is the most important: you! You can sample all of our books at retail sites such as Amazon (via their Look Inside feature) and Smashwords (allows for a certain percentage of the book to be previewed).
We count on the fact that, after reading the first few pages, you’ll be convinced of a book’s quality and want to read more. We then count on the fact that you’ll love it so much, you’ll post a review where you purchased it, indicating as much.
We apply rather strict editorial guidelines to all our books, perhaps tougher than most. You could say we’re a bit old-fashioned in that regard. Yes, every book must have an interesting and cohesive plot, compelling characters, a setting sufficient to support the story, and a satisfying ending. More than that, however, we at Evolved Publishing believe in the power of words to move people. Our editors, working with the authors, attempt to provide prose that not only supports the essential story in a clean, professional manner, but that makes the reading experience more visual, more powerful, more emotionally satisfying.
Has it worked for us so far? You be the judge.

BOOK AWARDS WON (Rights Returned to Author):
We actually won a good number of awards for books we originally published, but the rights for which we’ve returned to the authors. Since they are no longer part of our active catalog, we’ve not listed their awards on this page, even though we played a big role in the receipt of those awards.
