Hit mysterious buttons

Buttontapper Press is a San Diego micropress run by author Laura Roberts. The Press publishes ‘digital and print-on-demand anthologies of short fiction and essays in the love and relationships genre’ but is currently seeking to expand with a mystery line, Damned Dames, with the first novellas out in March 2016.

The Damned Dames Imprint will publish books which are in the mystery genre, accepting subgenres including noir, cosy, and caper. The novellas will have an emphasis on female PIs and protagonists, both professional and amateur sleuths, and all ‘stories must pass the Bechdel Test’ (ie have substantial female characters whose roles go beyond discussing the male characters) and ‘subvert the clichés of the genre’.
