ABOUT US...
As a niche, independent publisher, modern yet traditional, we publish a selection of novels each year, and a few children's books under our Kindi Corner imprint. Our popular Noveletta imprint publishes shorter stories and novellas. All our titles are published in both print and ebook formats.
      We accept submissions in fiction, thrillers, biographical and historical novels, romance, erotica, limited horror, the best of science fiction; and an unique non-fiction, health or a self-help book.
