This past weekend marked the eighth anniversary of Interlude Press becoming real. After months of planning, our small business incorporated on January 1, 2014 and soon after, we announced our plans to publish novels from first-time authors making the jump from fanworks to professional publishing.
Some applauded us. Some didn’t. We saw more than a few comments forecasting our inevitable and immediate failure.
Eight years later, our books have received awards, starred reviews, and placement on annual “Best of the Year” lists. They’ve appeared on bestseller lists. They’ve been featured in The New York Times, NPR, and O Magazine. Authors have become reader favorites, and some have moved on to new stages. And ultimately, our books found a larger platform when we signed with a distributor that opened new doors for our books.
As Interlude grew, so did its benchmarks for success. And it became clear that to ensure the continued success of this company in an increasingly competitive market, we were going to need some help.
Other publishers recognized this, as well. We were approached by larger companies about possible acquisition. And one stood out from the others.
On January 1st, we welcomed Chicago Review Press as the new owner of Interlude Press and Duet Books.
In Chicago Review Press, we found not just a new owner, but a familiar space committed to the catalog, the mission, the authors, and the brand of Interlude Press and Duet Books. Its publisher has expressed a strong commitment to keeping the brand intact and assigning editorial leadership to members of the queer community.
We take this step with great excitement for the future of Interlude Press, its authors, and their books. Throughout our months-long process, it became clear that Interlude has found a home that is committed to its future and respectful of its history.
We couldn’t be more grateful for the authors, editors, readers, bloggers, reviewers and more whose support and hard work have helped shape Interlude Press into the publisher it has become.
The three of us— Managing Editor Annie Harper, Art Director C.B. Messer, and Marketing-Communications Director Candysse Miller—have treasured this incredible ride and are thankful for your support and belief in our mission of helping readers of LGBTQ+ fiction find the love, triumphs, friendships, family, adventures, and the uplifting endings they deserve.

Pre-Order Now Available! BOOK OF DREAMS by Kevin Craig
From the award-winning author of The Camino Club, a thrilling descent into the pages of a cursed book leaves a teenager racing against time to escape the BOOK OF DREAMS.
Gaige’s curiosity gets the better of him when he discovers a bookstore on an abandoned street where no bookstore should be. He steps inside and is immediately enthralled by its antiquarian sights and smells. But one book in particular calls to him. It isn’t long before he gets a bad feeling about it, but it’s already too late. The store’s aged bookseller gives him no alternative: once he touches the book, it’s his—whether he wants it or not.
The book leads Gaige on a horrific descent into the unknown. As he falls into the depths of its pages, he loses blocks of time, and his friends become trapped inside ancient cellars with seemingly no means of escape.
Gaige soon learns that the ancient bookseller is a notorious serial killer from previous century, and fears that he has fallen into a predicament from which he may not escape. When all seems lost, he finds the one person he can turn to for help—Mael, a sweet boy also trapped inside the book who didn’t fall for the bookseller’s tricks. Together, they race against time to protect Gaige from joining a long string of boys who vanished without a trace inside the Book of Dreams.

“…a lively exploration of morality in a superpowered age.”—Publishers Weekly
Five years ago, an incredible story about friends, heroes, villains and what it means to be extraordinary found a home both on readers’ bookshelves and in their hearts. Since it’s release,C.B. Lee’s Not Your Sidekick has been featured in bookstores, libraries, classrooms, and major media—and we think a celebration is in order.
While we wait for the 2022 release of the fourth and final chapter of the Sidekick Squad series, we’re working with the author to create a new edition of Not Your Sidekick that will include bonus content from the Sidekick Squad files and a special Q&A with the author!
Look for details in coming weeks.
