Porfirio is a small press, (just getting started really!) specializing in Mystery novels. We want you, and your fellow mystery writers to know about our submissions process and our annual Mystery Contest. If your club, writing group, or website has members who are interested in getting their work out there, we would encourage you to share this information with them. Bring a poster along to your next meeting! If you are a larger website, publishing newsletters or advertisements that reach mystery writers, we would like to know more about your criteria. Would it be possible for us to advertise with you? Send any relevant information to this address, as we would greatly appreciate it! We are currently accepting submissions, and details can be found on our website at http://www.porfiriopress.com. Feel free to browse either the site, or our Facebook page for updates and information.
