We're interested in:

While we do publish many genres, we are especially interested in forward-thinking books and work from highly-dedicated authors–those who are excited to do author events, talk about their book online, and write more books in the future.

Our publishing house proudly supports stories written by, for, or about LGBTQ+, POC, and other #ownvoices authors and characters. We are looking for new and emerging authors to tell new and reimagined stories.

We are also looking to publish more New Adult fiction and Young Adult fiction. While NA is still growing as a genre, YA is one of the most popular literary genres, proving how interested in literature young people are.
