Notice: In 2010, we began life as a publisher of gothic poetry, and esoteric and occult chapbooks. In 2017, we are delighted to be stepping back into the role of occult publisher by releasing brand new and re-written editions of our two out-of-print chapbooks. News of this will be posted nearer the time.
Back in 2010, when we took our first step into publishing, we were keen to delve into the world of chapbooks and novellas, believing them highly underrated and wanting to explore bringing them back into the market. We published two Mind, Body, Spirit chapbook paperbacks, some poetry chapbooks, and some novella-length erotic and paranormal romance fiction in both eBook and paperback, as well as Bites (now out-of-print), Nannies, Inc. and Musique, by Ninfa Hayes.
Then, the eBook and self-publishing world exploded (largely due to some book that was various shades of one colour) and we realised that we weren't so crazy after all - readers began lapping up novella-length eBooks through their eReaders; cheaper books that were the perfect length for that train or bus ride - and, the big bonus: they were discreet. Satin Smoke Press, our imprint, was born for our darker, more steamy fiction titles, and it never looked back, now solely publishing the multi-genre works of Dianna Hardy.
Bitten Fruit Books took on more of a distribution and marketing role, becoming a micro-press and leaving Satin Smoke Press to do its own thing.
As a micro-press, we now print and publish leaflets, pamphlets and chapbooks, having stepped away from the e-market (leaving that to our imprint). Our micro-publications are largely in the Mind, Body, Spirit and more specialist esoteric fields, and mainly for private sale and distribution.
Our Twitter and Facebook Page is a showcase, hosting and sharing cover reveals, new releases, etc, from many different authors and genres, so we can help you find more good reads. We also publish three online, social media papers. Two of them are of book-related news, and you'll also find a new one bringing you esoteric/spiritual/mystical news.
Thanks for visiting.
In recent years, we have not been open to submissions. This may change again in the future.
