    Intrigue Press

    http://www.intriguepress.com/

    Does anyone have info? I have a book published by their house, one of the Bubba series. They've been around for over ten years. They look good to me.

    It's hard to tell. They might have some distribution since they've been around for a while. However, they're not accepting subs at the moment, but are taking care of past inventory.

    They were acquired in 2005 by Big Earth Publishing, which also bought out Bleak House and Johnson Books.

    If you can find their books on store shelves, they're worth considering.

    I queried them a few years ago with my book, Murder is Relative. They wrote back a very nice letter and said the book was too light in tone for their list, they were seeking more hard-boiled detective fiction. But if i had a ms that fit their guidelines I'd definitely submit again.

    Cool

    Am I right in thinking that Big Earth, which bought out the other two, is now only a non-fiction publisher, and doesn't handle fiction at all?

    Thanks. They're not accepting subs? I'll have to check the site again.

    Big Earth actually doesn't publish books. They are the parent company of Intrigue Press, Bleak House Books, Johnson Books, Trails Books, Westcliffe Publishers, and 3D Press.

    Bleak House Books, Intrigue Press, and Johnson Books all publish fiction. Bleak House Books does the most, focusing on dark literary and crime fiction.
