What we want the most


This includes supernatural, fantasy, metaphysical, and plots with an odd twists that keep you up at night, stories you can't put down! Get as dark as you want to get! Be as real and raw as you want to get but always keep the reader guessing, thinking, and shaking as they eagerly turn the page!

Urban Street Lit/Crime Drama

This is crime drama in all of it's forms. Urban, raw, sensuous, and exciting! Topics that are the here and now, about the city streets and dark passageways. Characters you don't want to meet in a dark alley, or maybe you do...


Hot and Steamy, sure always a favorite, yet also passion and pure romance set in the past, present, or future. Any genre of this theme can be your subject matter as long as the writing pulls the reader in to feel and explore.

Non-Fiction/Self Help/Motivational

Books that help others find their way. Topics about your life, your struggles and triumphs. Also books about navigating the world and an occupation.
