Bedazzled Ink Publishing

Our fiction must have a female protagonist. The writing must be engaging with a unique approach to storytelling and a distinctive authorial voice and style. We want works that explore realistic yet fascinating women tackling universal themes and subjects on a human level or taking an amusing stroll through our crazy world. Our nonfiction interests include feminism, history, nature, environment, social issues, biographies, autobiography, memoir, archaeology, anthropology, multicultural, spiritual, literary criticism, and women’s and gender studies. All from a female perspective.
