We’d take next, and spin the dial back to 1618.

US astrophysicist Ron Mallett has spent decades trying to crack the mystery of time travel in the hope of revisiting his past. He thinks he's figured out the science that would make it possible.

“The Death of Tarpons is much more than a fish story, more even than an investigation about how and why boys grow—or don’t grow—into good men. […] While this book deals with violence and cruelty, it is ultimately a definition of gentleness and love. It is a good story; it is a good book.” —The Indianapolis Star (Starred Review)

05/23/2020

In LOVE AND OTHER CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR, crime fiction powerhouse Nikki Dolson drops thirteen stories exploring the many different ways to love—and just as many ways to end up dead. The collection starts with "Georgie Ann", a tale of kept women, betrayal, fake friends, and oh, so much blood.

Nikki doesn’t pump the brakes before throwing the reader into the ring in "Take the Hit," where Kendra must go back into the boxing ring and throw a fight if she hopes to fulfill her dream of having a family.⠀

In "Sunrise," Nikki takes us to the desert to die. But not before unwinding the lost loves, regrets, and complicated relationships all plaguing one family, as two cousins try to decide whether they’ll let their beloved Uncle join his late first wife.

Nikki wraps up with "Our Man Julian," about a washed-up actor who is cultivating a wild San Diego garden, and a lifetime of loneliness and regret. Hit with the reality that he will die soon with no savings and nothing to offer the daughters he loves but barely sees, he plans an outrageous kamikaze mission. But can a man who’s survived it all really turn off that survival instinct? LOVE AND OTHER CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR will keep your heart pumping fast, right up until it’s broken. https://buff.ly/2ZtGx1a

What an amazing review of Hailey Piper’s THE POSSESSION OF NATALIE GLASGOW from Gowsy33: “This just may be my favorite novella. It’s certainly my favorite novella of 2019 so far. WOW, does this thin little book pack a punch! The beginning is such an amazing setup. I can’t remember the last time I was that creeped out while reading. The characters are sincerely likable, and even though we never really meet 11-year-old Natalie, I was rooting for her so hard. I also really liked Margaret, the woman who is trying to help her. Margaret is a medium of sorts, and she’s determined to give Natalie back her life.

Because whatever is possessing little Natalie is taking a major toll on her body. When Margaret first tries to save her, Natalie’s mother is seriously injured. Now it’s up to Margaret alone to find out what is controlling Natalie and how she can finally banish it for good.

I sincerely cannot say enough good things about this novella. It’s creepy and tense, and it has an absolutely amazing ending. Pick this one up. I think you will be glad you did.”

Here is the Latinx Dark Fiction Bundle curated by V. Castro! “We have female and male authors from different cultures within the Latinx community lending their unique voices and styles to genres that historically have not represented us. The darkness in this bundle ranges from creatures prowling the night to the icy clutches of abuse in a relationship. By embracing our differences through storytelling, I believe we can learn more about each other.” – V Castro https://buff.ly/2Gc8OjR

The Bronzeville Way

TL:DR

Bronzeville Books is an independent publisher focused on elevating voices and stories that have long been underrepresented and need to be told. Bronzeville Books breaks down dividers, whether that's in genre, mediums, or representations of characters to be inclusive and disruptive. Publishing books for teens and adults in a variety of formats and genres, Bronzeville Books unites readers and writers through outstanding stories.

We are committed to producing a generation of racism-free literature to ensure a racism-free future.

For more information, visit BronzevilleBooks.com.

BRONZING THE WAY

Within Bronzeville, writers and publishers work together to make room for all stories. It’s a place where talent is nurtured; the focus is author-centric, not on the individual book but on the longtime career of the author. We work deeply with authors on editing and revisions and provide publicity and marketing support for their work. The publishing house is supported by reader dollars, not institutional. We have chosen to succeed in the free market only, and not according to charitable influence. In this, we may home grow, from Black American talent, the cultural output required to resist generational erasure.

Bronzeville authors are provided the freedom to express themselves and use their voices in a way not always encouraged by Big Five publishing. They’re willing to take chances and challenge themselves to explore different points of view and different vehicles including novels, short stories, and works in between. Their stories are heartfelt and each unique voice is true to itself. Within Bronzeville, they remain that way.

Bronzeville Books calls people in, creating a community where all are welcome, regardless of genre, age group, color, gender, or sexuality. Migration principles. Make room. Get in. Fit in. We believe we will find common ground through storytelling and honest conversations. We hold and uphold the Black American cipher. We are committed to producing a generation of racism-free literature to ensure a racism-free future.

Bronzeville Books is committed to disruption. While operating as a traditional publisher, partnering with traditional bookstores and libraries, we intend to prove there’s a demand for these untold, often uncomfortable, but very necessary stories. This includes nontraditional exploitation of the works with audiobook production, merchandising, and performance of appropriate content with our contract partners.

What We Publish

We publish untold stories from authentic voices. Bronzeville authors are willing to take chances and challenge themselves to explore different points of view. Their stories are heartfelt and each unique voice is true to itself.

Authors whose stories we’d love to publish include Dorothy Tillman, Adam Clayton Powell, Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Octavia Butler, Ocean Vuong, Langston Hughes, and Carmen Maria Machado.

We have had an overwhelming response and are backlogged with submissions. We are currently only accepting agented or invited proposals, but please sign up for our mailing list and you’ll be notified when we reopen submissions.
