Author Seeks Publisher!

Dr. Tina Rath obviously has a thing for vampires.

She gained her doctorate from London University by writing her thesis on "The Vampire in Popular Fiction". Her MA was obtained by a dissertation called, "The Vampire in the Theatre".

You can read more about her writings here.

She's appeared in a variety of media, discussing the vampire phenomena, but even though she's had a variety of short vampires and dark fantasy stories published, and edited a short story anthology called Conventional Vampires (2003), she's seeking a publisher for her thesis.

Due to the subject of her work, I think a few university presses could accommodate her book. For example, SUNY Press recently published Mary Y. Hallab's Vampire God: The Allure of the Undead in Western Culture (2009).

Maybe we could go for a bit of a different tack. I'm thinking Vamplit Publishing. Sure, their submission guidelines specifically state they only publish "Gothic, vamplit, horror, fantasy and crime fiction in ebook format", but surely this'd be a worth addition to their output?

Barring that, how about Transylvania Press? Here's their mission statement:
Transylvania Press, Inc. publishes high-quality vampiriana for collectors, libraries and fans. Our limited editions are printed on high-quality, acid-free paper and bound in library binding.
If that doesn't suffice, there's always Lulu.

Any other reader suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
