Darkerwood Publishing Group was started in 1995 by Kim Anderson to publish niche and short-run printings of odd non-fiction and unique niche books by experts.
In 2006, Darkerwood Publishing Group started to publish more than one title a year thanks to available POD technology.
2006 also heralds our first attempt at publishing fiction with S.J. Reisner's Sorcerers' Twilight Series starting with the paperback reprint of the highly acclaimed, Left Horse Black, and a paperback reprint of Dana Reed's terrifying mystery Unholy Alliance.
In May of 2006, long time editor for Darkerwood, S. Connolly, helped to open a new horizon for Darkerwood Publishing Group, by introducing DB Publishing, our occult, spirituality, and religion imprint. In 2010 we added Midnight Fantasy Press, our erotic romance line featuring short to novel length erotic (bdsm) and erotic romance fiction.
Rest assured we are a TRADITIONAL publisher despite the fact that we sometimes use Print-On-Demand technology to bring books to our readers. This also means we PAY OUR AUTHORS, not the other way around.
While our beginnings were meager and we started out using Lulu to print many of our titles, we've evolved. While we still use Lulu for standard non-fiction hardcovers and initial releases of DB Publishing titles only, the rest of our books are printed using professional POD printing/distribution services and offset printing services. Our books are also distributed through industry standard distribution outlets like Baker & Taylor and Ingram. You will find most of our titles available through many online booksellers in both eBook and paperback. If you can't find one of our titles, contact us and we can direct you to it!
