Greetings Ghouls, Gays, and Theys
If you found this page, you’re queer. I don't make the rules, that's Dandy at the Lavender Society's job.
But seriously, welcome!
Without passion, we're dead. And I haven't felt more alive than when I took what started as a side project for my self-published titles and morphed it into a fully formed business venture.
Here we want what others turn away. We want unique, weird, genre-blending stories from outsiders, the punks, the freaks, the voices we can't find anywhere, but desperately want to read. We want clever and challenging prose and storytelling, where socio-political themes run strong. Reach down into the depths of the human experience and splatter it in ink. We want your tired, your broken, your angry and sick.
In short, our mantra at Book Slayer Press is to be different.
What to expect
As a micropress, we plan to publish 4-6 titles per year. To round out our first publishing year (July ‘23- July ‘24), three Roxie Voorhees titles are scheduled followed by our first annual anthology, Negative Creep, A NIRVANA-Inspired Anthology.
