About

Who We Are

Dead Ink Books is a publisher of great fiction. We're based in the North and we've been challenging the status quo for the past three years. We're small, ambitious, and we're growing. And we want to do more!

Publishing is largely homogenous, London-centric, and dominated by big corporations. Deep discounts, sale-or-return, and an intensely competitive landscape means that the survival of independent publishers is at best precarious.

But what if we could challenge that?


Why We Want Patrons

As a small press we’re frequently taking big risks and championing new authors. We’re looking to find 1,000 patrons to build Dead Ink into a publishing contender! One based in the North, able to provide jobs, champion new voices, and push forward the indie revolution.

Subscribing to our Patreon page is simple and easy–we’ll charge you for each book as we release it to you a month in advance of the trade release, and your support will help us by providing a stable regular income for our books that we can re-invest to grow.


What will be investing in?

Here are just a couple of things that we’ve been working on:

  • Growing our team
  • A Northern Classics imprint
  • A Northern Crime imprint
  • A US Indie Cult Fiction Imprint
  • US distribution!

Want to see a northern publisher grow? Want to see exciting new imprints?

Then subscribe to our Patreon and help us reach 1,000 subscribers! With your help everything could change in an instant.


So what can you expect from being a Dead Ink Patron?

Paperback Patrons will receive the following:

  • Each paperback delivered to their door a month ahead of publication.
  • The eBooks sent to your inbox.
  • Each book signed and hand-numbered by the author.
  • Access to Patreon-only content that includes exclusive interviews, short stories and articles from our authors.
  • The Dead Ink 2020 tote bag when they sign up.
  • A Dead Ink Patron sticker pack.

eBook Patrons will receive the following:
  • Each eBook sent to their inbox.
  • Access to Patreon-only content that includes exclusive interviews, short stories and articles from our authors. 
Goals
31 of 1000 patrons
1,000 subscribers is ambitious. Its daring. It’s even a bit intimidating, so why are we aiming so high?

1,000 subscribers would change our capabilities instantly. If you follow any independent publishers you probably know that they exist on a knife edge. They do much of the heavy lifting, but the odds (and the system) are stacked against them. Not only would reaching this amount of subscribers give us some much needed stability and enable us to invest in our future, but it would also allow us to put new plans into action.

So what new plans do we have in mind? Check these out...
  • Grow our team
  • Northern Crime
  • Northern Classics
  • US Indie Cult Classics
  • US distribution

We're asking you to be a part of making a dramatic change to the publishing industry. It should be a pretty fun ride, and we'd love for you to be involved. Think we can do it?
