Every now and then, out of the massive MidnightSun pile of unsolicited manuscripts, appears a story that really grabs us by the throat and shakes us around.

What will 2014 bring?

MidnightSun has been very busy behind the scenes lately, planning this year and beyond. Although we are currently snowed under with interesting manuscripts and in the process of reading them all, we have decided on a couple of projects for this year.

Celebrating 2012!

This first year has flown by for MidnightSun Publishing. We have made our fair share of mistakes, such as getting review copies out too late to important reviewers, and we have had lower visibility in the Eastern states than we would have liked.

Welcome to MidnightSun Publishing

MidnightSun Publishing is a new and exciting publishing company based in Adelaide, Australia. We believe that books matter. We believe that books are still important in this digital world and we aim to bring books to you in whatever format you prefer.

Good books change lives; they carry readers away to another world and another time; they make us laugh and cry and think about things that have never occurred to us before. Good books challenge and transform, they validate our own experiences and bring back long lost memories. Reading is an escape from reality but reading a good book also helps you to deeply immerse yourself in the lives of others.

MidnightSun publishes good books.
