Crime Publisher Tyrus Books Acquires Busted Flush Press

Tyrus Books

In a press release today, Tyrus Books announced the publisher has acquired Busted Flush Press.

Tyrus Books, founded in 2009, publishes crime and dark literary fiction from emerging and established authors. Busted Flush Press has published previously out of print books from award-winning authors.

The two strategies complement each other well. "I am very excited to join forces with [publisher Benjamin LeRoy] and Tyrus Books. I've long been a fan of what Tyrus has been doing," David Thompson, publisher of Busted Flush said. "And I believe Busted Flush Press will be a good fit."

"We're very excited to add the Busted Flush brand to Tyrus Books. David Thompson is a dedicated and tireless advocate of crime fiction and I look forward to seeing the Busted Flush brand continue to grow," said Benjamin LeRoy.

With this acquisition, Busted Flush becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyrus Books. Both companies are distributed to the trade by Consortium Book Sales and Distribution.
