The story behind Dreamspinner starts in summer 2006. Elizabeth North officiated her brother-in-law’s wedding to the man of his dreams. Later that weekend she happened upon her brother-in-law reading a Harlequin romance while lounging next to the pool. When Elizabeth asked about it his reply was simple: “They don’t write romances for people like me.” He’d been through the struggles and dark times, and emerged on the other side to live happily ever after. He wanted to read those stories. While visiting a group of close friends she made an offhand comment that someone should start a publishing company that specialized in gay romantic fiction, focusing on treating the authors well and producing quality books. That group of friends stayed up most of the night and the result was Dreamspinner Press.

Dreamspinner Press is an international full-service publisher of gay romance based in the United States of America. We publish stories from 3,500 words and up in several genre categories and eBook formats, as well as audiobooks and translations in four major world languages. Novels of 60,000+ words are published simultaneously in paperback. In seven years, Dreamspinner has built a catalog of well over than 2,000 titles written by more than 500 authors from six continents. The Press now operates three imprints: Dreamspinner Press, specializing in gay romance; Harmony Ink Press, devoted to LGBTQ+ Teen and New Adult fiction; and DSP Publications, a boutique publisher of specialty genre fiction. Dreamspinnerpress.com has almost 30,000 registered users.

Our business plan is not to be everything for everyone, but to consistently produce quality gay romance diverse enough to be entertaining. We do our best to provide every customer and every author the best experience possible.

Clan Destine Press

Clan Destine Press

Clan Destine Press is all about genre.

Genre fiction in its myriad and wondrous forms: crime, mystery, historical fiction, thrillers, adventure, speculative fiction, fantasy, science fiction, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, steampunk, and ah-ha! – which is any combination of the aforementioned – or Adults and Young Adults.

We publish inventive, clever and original works of page-turning genre fiction; riveting cross-genre stories; and books that are heroic, questy, feral, dark, funny, spine-tingly, fast-paced, serious, silly and sensible.

Our authors are Australian and Clan Destine Press novels are gay, straight, queer, ancient, contemporary, gothic, retro, post-apocalyptic, earthbound and/or galactic.

We dabble in the non-fiction world of true crime, but we specialise in genre fiction which – for some strange reason – means we also love fictional (& factional) cats, dogs, alpacas, cosmic toucans and Sawtoothed Bunnies.

We aim to publish new and exciting, plot-driven, boundary-pushing fiction with fully-fledged characters and a strong sense of place.

It is the prime objective of Clan Destine Press to uncover, foster and promote new Australian genre writers and to provide a home where already-published authors can move in and play in new worlds.
