'Though she be little, she is fierce'
Shakepespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Word from our founder, Loredana Carini.
I think it's good to start how we intend to continue. Here at SmashBear, we are very informal, preferring a hands-on approach to editing and publishing our manuscripts. Our authors can look forward to being a part of intimate teams with no-nonsense access to their publisher and editing team. Authors aren't kept at arms length, we want you to feel like you're a part of SmashBear.
We only publish what sparks passion within the editorial team. I started SmashBear so that I could help create quality books that I, and like-minded people can enjoy. Marketability will come second to how much we enjoy reading it.
We've published three amazing books so far and I can't wait to see what you send in!
At SmashBear Publishing, we produce and publish high quality books. We specialise in urban fantasy, fantasy, and paranormal romance but will also consider horror and Sci-Fi. As an independent, traditional publisher, we want to help change the face of literature by bringing diversity and fair representation to our genres. We love books and we believe that everyone should be able to see themselves represented in their heroes.
