Rhemalda Publishing was established in January 2010.
We accept manuscript submissions from authors with or without agents.
Rhemalda Publishing publishes young adult, new adult, and adult fiction and non-fiction. We work closely with our authors to publish books that readers of all ages will love. We encourage you to look through our bookstore and find a world to immerse yourself into.
Rhemalda Publishing is dedicated to books and authors. It is our mission and culture to collaborate with authors, editors, artists, marketers, and publicists to make our books visible to as wide of an audience as possible.
As a leading independent small press like Rhemalda, there’s an awful lot going on every day. There is no doubt that the publishing industry is in a state of change. Rhemalda couldn’t be more excited about all the new opportunities to connect authors and readers. In short, we embrace the change.
I was recently asked what it means for Rhemalda to be an independent small press. For Rhemalda, it means a passion for books, a passion for authors, and a belief that a great book can change the life of a reader. It means a publishing environment where every book is personal and every author’s voice has a place.
Rhemalda Publishing's mission is to provide high-quality books through careful treatment of manuscripts by working hand-in-hand with authors so as not to take away, but enhance, the original vision for the written word.
Rhemalda Publishing has a few key people who make it all happen.
Rhett Hoffmeister, President and Publisher
Rhett is the co-founder of Rhemalda Publishing. His 10-plus years of project management experience ensures that books with tight schedules still get the attention that they deserve, while making sure that each author plays an active role in raising his or her “baby” from manuscript to book. This ensures that the author’s “baby” did not get “swapped at the hospital.”
His honest, straightforward and charismatic personality make him personable to each and every author, no matter if they are the most outgoing extrovert or the shyest introvert. He is so approachable that each Rhemalda author feels at ease speaking their mind, voicing their opinions and most of all telling him their concerns.
Despite all of this, he is goal-oriented and keeps his eye focused on the publication date and able to make the best decisions for the author, their book and Rhemalda Publishing.
With an ear for a good story and an eye for good cover art, Rhett makes each and every book that Rhemalda Publishes the best that it can be.
Emmaline Hoffmeister, Vice President
Emmaline is the co-founder of Rhemalda Publishing. With 10-plus years of experience in auditing, accounting and finance, Emmaline likes the projects to deliver on (or under) budget, the profit and loss statements to always show in the black, sales to exceed expectations and every stitch of paperwork to be independently reviewed and properly filed.
Emmaline works directly with Rhemalda’s financial and legal representatives for all aspects of printing, distribution and author contracts, copyrights, financial records and, most importantly, author royalties.
Any inquiry sent to Emmaline will be followed by a stack of documentation to support her decision… old auditing habits die hard!
