We publish mostly mysteries with a focus on the cozier side of life: cozies with a hook, cozies with an edge, cozies with humor, and cozies with adventure. We’re fortunate to have had several books hit the USA TODAY bestseller list, and have multiple books win industry awards and garner nominations for the Agatha, Macavity, Daphne, Anthony, and Golden Heart.

All books are available in ebooks, trade paperbacks, and hardcovers (libraries, we’re looking at you). We pay royalties to our authors while offering editorial guidance, engaging cover artwork and a structured turn-key social media strategy. We’ve got high expectations here in the Hen House and we pass the results along to the readers.
