New Pulp Press was founded in 2008 as an alternative to the often generic world of conglomerate corporate publishing. Dedicated to giving voice to some of today’s most talented and neglected writers, New Pulp Press focuses on off-center crime fiction and neo-pulp. Veering away from the assumption that a protagonist must be a sympathetic character, our books are centered around con-men, losers, and sociopaths. In other words, we represent what's best about America.
Here you won't find any saccharine coming-of-age novels or self-help books. You will find raw and desperate tales about men and women on the wrong side of the law, tales drenched with nihilism and loathing.
Read our books. Pass them on to friends. Give us feedback. We're not a big press, but we're plenty scrappy.

Real quick: I really dig what I see here. I write about lost dogs and losers myself, having been one... My novel, Red Christmas, goes this way: three guys rob a dopehouse in northend Seattle on Christmas.Three people are killed, includng a little old lady who was just walking by on the sidewalk. The town is on fire for these guys. They fall out bigtime, and terror, treachery, and murder ensue as they lam for the border with cops hot on their ass.
I'll whip up a query letter to send with the first three chapters as per instructions, as soon as my computer friend helps me figure out how to detach those chapters from the rest of the book.
Hope to talk with you soon, and thanks for giving me your consideration.
