Virtually every genre is represented by one of our fine authors; this is owed to their individual ability to tell a good story. From classic literature to political memoirs, from illustrated picture books to gripping suspense thrillers – the key is in the quality.
Our fiction books include crime fiction from C&R Crime, the award-winning Corsair and Canvas fiction imprints, and the best in science fiction, horror fiction, fantasy fiction and erotic fiction from Mammoth books. Our non fiction books include biography and memoir, current affairs books, history books, humour and gift books, the respected Overcoming series of self help books and How To and Right Way reference books on a multitude of subjects.

Crazy Cozy Stories is interested in cozy mysteries and quiet horror novelettes, novellas, and novels between 7,500 and 50,000 words. Novelettes should be between 7,500 - 15,000 words, novellas should be between 15,000 - 25,000 words, and novels should be between 25,000 - 50,000. We will consider longer stories if you query us first.
We are looking for stories that embody the ideal of the cozy genre. One important aspect of any work of "cozy" literature is the absence of violence, gore, sex, or other potentially offensive elements of a similar nature. Although a cozy story can involve murder, ghosts, and suspense it should do so in a tasteful manner. We pay our writers 70% of all profits made from both e-book and print sales on their specific work.
We also strive to help promote and spotlight authors and publishers who are already established in the market through social media, news posts, and book reviews.

Over the years Rainbow Books has published hundreds of books, mostly in the self-help and how-to nonfiction categories.
Our focus on genre fiction, like science fiction, westerns, and mysteries, means that our stories feature more action and adventure than most lesbian publishers and gay publishers. Many of our books and eBooks feature kick-ass heroines. This means that violence often accompanies them. Our books are not always for the squeamish.
