Here at Bonafide Media we love, live and breathe publishing.

We are a small independent publishing house with big ideas and an agile approach to creating books.

We produce genre fiction, non-fiction, comics and children’s books across a broad range of formats including digital, paperback and audiobook.

Our current focus is our main fiction imprint, but we’re also in the process of expanding our broad portfolio of published brands.

What we do


We produce a wide range of books through several imprints and work with a pool of talented cover designers, editors and book marketers.  Dark Paradigm books could take you to a post-apocalyptic world,  or a sci-fi story up in the stars or perhaps closer to home within the cold comfort of a steely thriller.

We also publish non-fiction and children’s books.
