WHO ARE WE?
We are on a quest to become Ireland's premier publisher of Speculative Fiction. We publish Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, & Historical Fiction from authors around the world.
We occupy a dimension next to yours, and we work with authors whose passion for writing means that it is not just something they do - it is who they are. We are a small but dedicated and passionate team of like-minded creatures who could not breathe without the written word (especially those big words that catch in the throat).
Please note that we are neither 'vanity' nor 'hybrid' publishers. Explore our website and you'll see that we occupy the same world as you. As we grow, we hope that we'll have the good fortune to work with you as you join us on our quest for world domination...starting with Ireland, you understand.
IN DARKNESS WE HIDE
On alternating Tuesdays between 3 and 5, The Gatekeeper is just like you. This is because he likes to drink heavily on alternating Mondays, leading to difficulties maintaining his form. He also runs the show, so...I've probably said too much...
ASMODEUS THE EFFICIENT
Asmodeus is a little weird, but then so are all you creative types. A dark lord from the hellish pits between worlds, he loves expressing his emotions artistically. He's such a blessing to have around. Especially when the cursing starts.
THE BRIGHT ONE
With a voracious appetite for books and souls, you had better hope your writing is worthy of her time. The alternative is disturbing to watch. And we hate cleaning up afterwards.
WHY SHOULD YOU PUBLISH WITH US?
The decision to hand your work over to strange creatures and have them determine its validity and market value is not an easy one to make, especially when there are so many options for doing it yourself.
At Temple Dark, we pride ourselves on being open and honest with our authors about the decisions we make. We will only offer our services to authors whose work we are confident of selling successfully (which is as much a reflection of our work as yours). We select works for publication based on the quality of the writing – if we enjoy it, we see the potential. As such, we care little for gender, ethnicity, skin colour, and anything else that has no bearing on a writer’s ability to tell a good story.
Submissions will re-open soon
