    Dragonfairy Press

    I just came across this publisher not too long ago, and I was wondering if anyone had nay experience with them. I noticed that they have a lot of books published by the editors. Other than that and that they publish a lot of speculative fiction, I don't know anything about them.

    Duotrope has them listed and P&E doesn't have anything negative to say about them.

    They're closed to submissions right now, but they have a book coming out later this year.

    They claim to have bookstore placement:

    Booksellers

    Our books are distributed by Small Press United, a division of the Independent Publishers Group (IPG). Please contact your IPG sales representative or visit IPG for ordering information.

    I would like clarification on that. At any rate, they're too new to really interest me.

    About a year ago I actually messaged one of the authors with DFP because the premise of our novels were similar. He said he was quite happy with them. I submitted to them July of last year and received a rejection in September.

    They have nineteen books listed on Amazon. Some decent sales ranks. Negative reviews tend to focus on explicit sex and violence (which does not concern me) and poor editing, lack of character development, and limited worldbuilding (which does).

    They're closed for submissions at the moment (since February according to the submissions page). Their covers look pretty good and I like that many of them feature POC characters.

    I like their covers too. I do think that a bit more info could be given on their website, though. I sent them an e-mail about a few questions, and I'm just waiting on a response.

    They do claim to have in-store distribution, so next time I go to the book store, I'll keep an eye out for their works.

    Tw ceased in '13, and FB in '14; coinciding with last book published.

    Too bad. I was hoping they'd last. ETA: doing more research to see what social media platforms they are using. Main website's still up.

    Only three books listed on Amazon.
