If you write science-themed fiction, partnering with ScienceThrillers Media is the best way to get your words in front of readers.


ScienceThrillers Media is a new, boutique, hybrid publisher.

Our goal is to do for SciThri what Harlequin did for romance:

to create a publisher brand that readers will recognize for excellence in a specific genre.

Readers often choose books based on author brand.

Author brands are wonderful—if you’re an author with many published books and a famous name.

A strong publisher brand allows authors to pool their “fame.”

Readers may not recognize the name of a debut author, but if that author is published by ScienceThrillers Media, SciThri fans can discover the book and be confident it will be a quality book in a category they like.


Every book published by STM in 2015 won a major national independent publishing award (IBPA Benjamin Franklin and IPPY silver medals)

Designing and implementing a marketing plan for individual titles is costly. That’s why most big publishers invest significant marketing money in only a small fraction of the books in their list.

By focusing on titles with crossover appeal to the same audiences, we at ScienceThrillers Media can use marketing strategies to promote our entire list, instead of only one book at a time. This gives us a bigger impact for each dollar we spend.

Our authors can help one another by promoting the STM brand along with their titles. Fans of one STM author are likely to become fans of others, too.

At ScienceThrillers Media, our specialized genre focus and author-centric hybrid publishing contracts suit every SciThri writer's needs.
