Seventh Street Books: Spotlight Market

An imprint of Start Science Fiction, Seventh Street Books has published several award-winning novels in their short existence, including The Life We Bury, by Allen Eskens; The Necessary Murder of Nonie Blake, by Terry Shames; and The Black Hour, by Lori Rader-Day.
What They’re Looking For: Seventh Street Books publishes only mystery and thriller novels. They're not currently interested in short story collections, anthologies, novellas, or nonfiction.
