Austin Macauley

Here at Austin Macauley we have faith in all of our publications and treat each of them as a potential success. We are keen to open up the world of publishing at a time when many publishers are turning their backs on untried authors, and when the lure of self-publishing seems to provide writers with control, but at an exorbitant cost and with every chance of being lost in the crowd.

BLB is now. BLB is tomorrow. BLB is a pillow. BLB is a warm hug.

Brothel Books

Poems that make us want to throw your book across the room because it’s so damn good. Poems we like are often obsessed with myth, foreign languages, and our fathers. Bring orange groves to NYC, the epistolary language of turn-of-the-century Paris to an email exchange, or a fight with your boyfriend to pre-Roman Gaul. Poems that import and export imagery, but handle it carefully. Poems that take linguistic and personal risks feel more important to us.
