Brash Books Seeks Unpublished Crime Novels and Award-Winning Backlists

Bookshelf-Mystery-CindyFazziIf you have an unpublished crime novel, you might want to consider submitting your work to Brash Books, a new company established by two veteran novelists. Lee Goldberg and Joel Goldman formed a partnership with online retailer to publish their works, as well as other novels.

Goldberg has published more than 40 books; he’s a co-author of Janet Evanovich. Goldman is the author of the Lou Mason and Jack Davis thriller series. They self-publish and also work with traditional publishers. They formed their publishing company after learning that they were both self-publishing and looking to revive backlists.

Brash Books has published 30 crime novels by award-winning authors. The books are available in both print and digital copies. They are also available via print on demand. The company plans to use a P.R. firm to help promote its books.

 Open for Submissions

Brash Books is open for submissions of unpublished crime novels. It is also looking to acquire out-of-print novels, especially if they have won awards, or if they have received recognition (e.g., finalist in contests, or major book reviews).
