Dorchester Publishing

Dorchester Publishing Dorchester Publishing is an independent publisher of trade paperbacks and e-books specializing in romance, horror, Westerns and thrillers. Founded in 1971, Dorchester became the oldest independent mass-market publisher in the U.S., and the only mass-market house with dedicated lines for Westerns and horror. Dorchester has always been a company that’s willing to take risks. Recently we’ve made the exciting transition from mass-market to trade paperback and e-book formats. With the diminishing demand for mass-market titles and growing demand for e-books, many have said that the industry must change to survive, and Dorchester is proud to be at the forefront of this change while we continue to publish our signature genre fiction. For almost 40 years our dedicated staff has worked tirelessly to discover and promote new talent.The romance line has built such stars as Christine Feehan, Katie MacAlister, Connie Mason, Lynsay Sands, and numerous others. Dorchester books have won awards for every category in which they’re eligible and have been featured in The New York Times, Newsweek, USA Today, Redbook, Time, CNN, The Los Angeles Times and many more.

The very best in genre fiction since 1971.

We specialize in discovering new talent, giving authors a foundation for success, and providing readers with fresh, quality fiction at a good value.
