Shayne Leighton
The Parliament House

At The Parliament House, we believe that pen and ink is as good as magic and spell, and we strive to provide a good home for those stories with a little extra dazzle. We work with our writers every step of the way on their literary journey, helping to bring out the most from their work. From multiple rounds of editing to unique, individualized marketing outreach, The Parliament House helps our authors produce brilliantly bizarre, original, and moving stories with some edge.

Why Parliament House? Though we are new on the block in the publishing community, our team has a combined twenty-plus years experience in editing, marketing, and design. We specialize in a niche market and are very selective about the sorts of titles we accept, because we want to ensure each of our projects gets the attention it deserves. Every title is selected specifically because we believe in its ability to succeed.

Striving to be the Guillermo del Toro of the indie publishing world, The Parliament House was founded by Shayne Leighton, bestselling author and marketing professional. The Parliament House curates fantasy of every scope. Be it contemporary, steampunk, paranormal, urban, or otherwise, it has to be the sort of magic that captures our attention and leaves a lasting impression.
