Who Gets Published at Haven of Dreams Publishing?
Haven of Dreams Publishing loves to give authors a chance! We welcome first time authors and seasoned authors whose novels and novellas fit into our specific niche:
Stories, geared towards young adult readers that are
inspiring and uplifting or entertaining without offending
We publish authors who may not be picked up by a Big 6 publishing company because our authors refuse to lower their standards. Our authors represent the elite among writers. Profanity, immorality, and explicit violence or gore have no place in our “haven.”
We accept fiction across all YA genres: Adventure, Christian, Contemporary, Fantasy, Historical, Inspirational, Middle Grade, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller, Western, etc.. We may accept non-fiction, but ONLY if it tells a story that a younger reader would enjoy.
Here at Haven of Dreams Publishing, we enjoy stories that take us to fantastic worlds, and allow us to dream and imagine. We feel that an uplifting story can strengthen our faith, solidify our resolve, and introduce us to new worlds and old ones, and shape the way we view life in a way that is scarcely found in any other form of expression.
Like Vesta House Publishing, our parent company, we love a good, clean story! And we pride ourselves on the haven we have created for readers of all ages, but especially to the younger generation.
We look forward to publishing YOUR wholesome work of fiction!
NOW AVAILABLE: A Memory Apart by Daniel Elijah
About A Memory Apart:
Hayden and Joshua were perfect for each other!
She was adventurous, full of life, and brilliant; he was level-headed, caring, and subdued. They complemented and completed the other in ways that would be impossible alone, creating the perfect pair. When you saw them together, you couldn't help but marvel at what they had. It was special.
And it had always been that way. From the very first time they met as small children, they connected on a level rarely seen. Immediately, they were inseparable, spending their young lives creating happy memories together--memories that would make anyone jealous.
It seemed as if they would continue creating these memories until the end of eternity. But sometimes life has a different plan. Sometimes, one event can change everything. . . .
What teen readers have to say about A Memory Apart:
“Ahhh I love it! It needs to be made into a movie so I can cuddle someone and watch it!”
“It's sooooooo good. I haven't been this emotionally attached to a book/characters/situation for a loooooong time . . . I love it! I love it! I love it! I love it!!!”
“It's one of those ‘I wish I had a girlfriend to love like this’ moments!”

Author of A Memory Apart:
Daniel Elijah [AKA Daniel Elijah Roueche], author of A Memory Apart, was born in Provo, Utah. At the ripe-ol’ age of 6 weeks, he traveled with his family across the country to settle in the mysterious land of McLean, Virginia. After a restless year and a half, he moved all the way across the state line to Gaithersburg, Maryland, where he developed a love of sports whilst playing with his three brothers. He also developed a love of the Olsen twins whilst playing with his little sister. But, eventually it was time for him and his family to move on to bigger things. And what better place to find “bigger things” than Arlington, Texas? While in Texas, he developed an insatiable appetite for all genres and forms of stories—books, movies, television shows, crazy next door neighbors, old ladies at church, pathological liars. He absolutely fell in love with film and all the stories that can be told in that medium. There is rarely a day that goes by that Daniel doesn’t watch a new movie or spend hours on IMDB soaking up as much trivia as possible. While a teenager, he also developed a life-long love for the Dallas Mavericks. This obsession would prove to be more than a passing fad and would even evoke a tear or two when they won the championship in 2011.
At the age of 17 he made his way around the metaphorical “full circle” and moved back to Provo, Utah, where he attended Brigham Young University. After years of study, a stint in Parker, Colorado, and several majors later, he earned a B.A. in English Language in December of 2012. Daniel remains in Provo, and spends as much time as he can writing, playing sports, watching the Mavs, reading anything and everything he can get his hands on, dancing like a madman, and going to movies.
