From our FAQ on the About/Contact Page ...

What kind of books do you publish? 

We like dark fiction and some types of non-fiction. 

What's dark fiction ? 

Horror, science fiction with more menace than science, psychological thrillers, mystery, urban fantasy, you get the idea. 

What don't you publish? 

Romance, erotica, epic fantasy, fan fiction, hard science fiction, splatter-punk, experimental fiction, and poetry. 

You mentioned non-fiction, too. 

We're looking for paranormal/haunted books, media/movie books, that kind of stuff. Tales of Haunted Amusement Parks, perfect. A study of insect migration in South Dakota, allow me to refer you to B2P.
