Fantasy & Dark Fantasy
in Fiction & Academia
Luna Press Publishing™ is an award-winning independent UK press, founded in 2015 by author Francesca T. Barbini. We deal with Science Fiction, Fantasy and Dark Fantasy, in both fiction and academia. We are also a proud member of Publishing Scotland.
We work with agents, published authors and new writers. We take pride in our family - the Luna family - and we work hard to promote and support it.
We are very keen to create writing opportunities and to give back to the community. We work with worthy partners to promote inclusiveness in the publishing industry. Some of our books are affiliated to charities, so when you buy a book in our store you are also giving to charity. The donations are taken from Luna's own share of the profit. Discover more on the Luna Charity page.
Currently, the press has the following projects:
"Academia Lunare" is the non-fiction branch for the critical exploration of fantasy and science fiction. We focus on academic research, speculative non-fiction and PhDs. The critical assessment of literature is a way to show one's love for a particular author or body of work.
"Visual Words" explores the realm of graphic novels in unconventional ways.
"Lines to Life" is our art series, with colouring books, children's illustrated books and more generally art books.
"Traditional Fiction" includes all fictional work - from full-length novels to anthologies to parodies - for YA, Teen and a more general audience.
You can see which of these projects are open for submissions, on our submissions page.
We are very excited to be a home for visual and written creativity and look forward to journeying with you.
