Books for people who love books

Post by Diiarts » Wed August 18th, 2010, 8:27 pm

Hello from Dragon International Independent Arts, or Diiarts for short.

We're a small independent publisher specialising in literary/historical fiction and thrillers. My name's Ben and I'm Diiarts' lead editor on the literary/historical side.

Here's what we say about ourselves on our website: "Diiarts is an independent publisher dedicated to the work of outstanding new writers. Our ambition is to deliver high quality books from authors to readers with fewer barriers in between. We offer books with character—books that entertain, challenge and inspire; books for people who love books.

"If mainstream publishers are the Tesco of the world of books—providing bulk products for a mass market—we believe that Diiarts is the farmers’ market of the industry, offering something different: something distinctive, high quality and full of flavour."

I'd probably better say this now and get it over with: we're a very small organisation with a lot on our plate right now, so we're not taking new submissions of full-length MSS at present. That said, we do have a call for short stories open - see http://bit.ly/bUqkSj

Right. Let me get this right, Ben.

So, what you're saying is, essentially, that DIIARTS is like a niche or boutique publisher, a connoisseur of sorts, right?
