QUICK TALES – We don’t always have time for a long-detailed tale. Sometimes we barely have time to begin one. That’s the beauty of a short story. It can begin and end in a single sitting, and bring us anywhere. They can make us smile, cry or lock the doors. Try one.

Red Mantle Publishing was established in Dundalk, Ireland by fantasy writers C. Thomas Smith and Tara D. W. Tine in 2017.

Upon searching for publishers and agents to represent and publish their work in Ireland, they were surprised to find the Land of Saints and Scholars empty of resources for writers in the fantasy and magic realism genres.

Red Mantle Publishing is an independent forum and resource for writers, editors, illlustrators and others looking to embark upon a career in the creative publishing industry.
