What we publish…

Our favourite genres are crime fiction, mysteries, psychological thrillers, cosy crime, police procedurals, chillers, suspense and domestic noir. We also love women’s fiction, historical fiction and romance novels, including WWII romances and sagas.

We encourage authors of colour, LGBT+ authors, differently abled authors, authors from diverse backgrounds to submit their work and make their voices heard.

We especially look for great stories, fresh ideas, excellent writing and original voices; in short authors who say something interesting about the world as they see it.

We publish writers we believe in, from debut novelists and agented authors, to self-represented writers and authors who are already well-established.

Submissions are welcome from anywhere in the world. We only publish books in the English language.

We accept submissions from agents, previously published authors (including self-published authors) with long backlists, first-time writers with only one book under their belt, and anyone in between.
