Bitten Fruit Books started life solely as a small press back in September, 2010, but has constantly morphed to better fit the full range of promotions and marketing that our authors have both initiated, and been in need of. Today, Bitten Fruit Books would be considered a micro-press with an emphasis on marketing and distribution for Dianna Hardy and imprint, Satin Smoke Press.
As a micro-press, we publish chapbooks and pamphlets and there is a view that in the future, we may step away from the e-market (leaving that to our imprint) and only publish specialised, short-run, print publications of certain titles, and these may even be for private and educational establishments, rather than for commercial platforms.
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 two online papers of book-related news.
Our current publications include, A Silver Kiss (Vampire Poetry), by Dianna Hardy, and Bites (now out-of-print), Nannies, Inc., and Musique (online web-story), all by Ninfa Hayes. We have a small range of out-of-print titles also, which may come back into publication in the future.
Our UK bookshop (see the Store page) is our more personalised platform for getting Dianna's signed books and often exclusive merchandise out to you, but you can also purchase or download [the unsigned] books from major online retailers, including most Amazon stores, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, Blackwells, Powells, Booksamillion and many more.
We are a small, family-run venture. Dianna Hardy owns Bitten Fruit Books and still oversees many of its activities. You can contact the site here.
We hope you enjoy browsing.
In recent years, we have not been open to submissions. This may change again in the future.
