Dragon Moon Press
From the Publisher
Dragon Moon Press is a Canadian independent publisher of fantasy, science fiction, paranormal horror, and the occasional title that’s hard to classify! Our books have been nominees and winners of numerous literary awards, including ForeWord Book of the Year, Bram Stoker, Sir Julius Vogel, IPPY, and Endeavour Awards.
Market: Manuscripts targeted to the adult market or the upper border of YA. No middle grade or children’s literature, please.
