Our mission is to raise the profile of northern writers, offering unrepresented and diverse voices a platform to demonstrate their writing.
We are interested exclusively in Crime Fiction for our initial releases. Though our editorial tastes bridge the smorgasbord of the crime fiction genre, from police procedural to cosy-crime, as well as genre-bending sci-fi, fantasy, and romance. We're seeking diverse narratives with strong regional accents, a firm identity of place, and bold northern characters.
Digital publishing is the fastest growing arm of the publishing industry, innovations in technology and the way readers consume commersial fiction have shifted dramatically from print to digital since the ealry-2000s.
While print is still a vital part of our publishing process, we feel that a agile and robust approach to ebook and print-on-demand offer our authors an unbeatable level of sales and creative control over their work.
