Welcome to NineStar Press. We’re a boutique publisher of quality LGBTQA romance, erotica, and literary fiction, and we’re located in New Mexico, USA.
NineStar Press is an LGBTQA publisher owned and managed by LGBTQA people. We adore romance and erotic romance, but we also have an enormous interest in showcasing amazing literary works about characters less represented in fiction: ace, aro, trans*, nonbinary, genderfluid, bi, pan, etc. We also like genre-bending fiction, fusion genre, and stories that don’t quite fit into a particular category.
What do we want from this business? So much, more than we can fit on this page, but mostly this:
We want our authors to earn an income from writing. We want our authors to win awards. We want our readers to come back again and again, and we want them to know that when they pick up a NineStar Press book, they’re in for a great time. We want the business to expand and grow and open its doors to more niches and genres. We want a lot of things. But mostly, when it comes down to it, what we want is for everyone involved—from readers to authors to staff—to thoroughly enjoy everything about NineStar Press.
