The A-Z of Publishing Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror Fiction

Updated: Aug 10

We get so many questions about what we do as publishers, how to become a publisher etc, that we've decided to compile all of our knowledge into one place for you! We're going to take you through what it means to be an urban fantasy, fantasy, paranormal romance, and horror fiction publishing house. From how to find authors and making yourself attractive to authors, right through to zat's all folks (I'm aware it's cheesy, but you come up with something beginning with z).


Before we jump into all of the articles, we're putting the alphabet in this article, which we'll then update with links as we progress. Think of this as your homepage.


You may be thinking 'why are you sharing all of this for free', and we'll tell you! We believe in openness. This knowledge is what we've gathered over the past 2 years of operating and we don't see the point in hoarding knowledge. If this knowledge helps an aspiring publisher to start their own house, or helps educate an author before starting their journey, then we'll be happy! Plus, in the spirit of full honesty, this sort of stuff is great for SEO and building a great website, which we'll get to as we make our way down the list!
