Shadow Dragon Press

Kinkajou Press


Artemesia Publishing was founded in 2004 with the vision of publishing unique and interesting books. We realized there were authors waiting to tell their stories who might be overlooked by the larger publishers. We are a micro-publisher based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico that works in partnership with authors to publish their work. By printing as few as two titles a year we have been able to focus on quality over quantity and this has led to numerous awards for our titles.

Our first titles were non-fiction, focusing on inspirational and real-life events. Our first fiction titles were for young readers and soon we had three middle-grade series being published. This focus on middle-grade fiction allowed us to create our first imprint, Kinkajou Press, in 2009, which publishes early reader, mid-grade, and YA fiction.

A mix of non-fiction and fiction titles continue to be published under the main Artemesia banner. This includes books on art/architecture, science education that is also entertaining, romance, historical fiction, and mystery.

In 2013 Artemesia continued to grow its brand with the creation of our second imprint, Shadow Dragon Press. Shadow Dragon focuses on horror, supernatural, science fiction, and fantasy titles that will push these genres into new directions.

In 2018 we partnered with Midpoint Trade Books to distribute our titles to a wider audience, and later that year Midpoint Trade Books was bought by IPG Books, who now distributes all of our titles to a national and international audience. With over thirty titles in print, and counting, Artemesia Publishing and our imprints will continue to seek out authors with compelling stories to tell and to bring exciting titles to print that will educate, inform, and entertain our readers.
