BWL Publishing Inc. is a Canadian publisher of popular fiction actively working with International and Canadian authors to publish their fiction in a worldwide marketplace.


BWL Publishing Inc. particularly focuses on the scarcity of Canadian publishers who are currently publishing new Canadian popular fiction authors. Although there are several publishing companies in Canada, the opportunities they have made available to emerging Canadian authors who write popular fiction  have been sadly lacking for a  number of years.  In fact, after much research amongst the community of Canadian authors our estimates have it that fewer than 5% of Canadian authors who write popular fiction have been able to find a place with any of the currently existing Canadian publishing houses.  In fact, most of them don't even bother to answer query letters from new authors.

There is always room for already established best sellers in those houses, unfortunately, Canada lags far behind other countries in the markets it makes available to emerging and newly established authors unless they happen to write literary fiction.  BWL Publishing Inc. specializes in popular fiction - both Canadian and International -- and we're working very hard to change the opportunities available to Canadian authors of popular fiction in their own country.

Susan Davis.


Susan has been an editor and author for many years working with small and mid-sized publishers. She specializes in young adult and adult mystery and paranormal as well as contemporary romance, fantasy and thrillers.  Susan writes multi-genre stories, but loves penning a good page-turning suspense-thriller, especially when it’s a ghost story and a romance. When she’s not writing, editing, or reading, she’s hiking, RV’ing, fishing, playing with grandchildren, or enjoying time with her favorite muse (her husband) in Southwest Michigan.

She also writes YA paranormal, supernatural novels as DK Davis.



 Renee Duke grew up in Ontario/B.C., Canada and Berkshire, England. Due to a treacherous re-drawing of county lines while she was out of the country, her little English market town is now in Oxfordshire, but she’s still a Berkshire girl at heart.

After qualifying as an Early Childhood Educator, she went on to work with children of all ages in a number of capacities, including a stint in Belize, Central America with World Peace and Development. These days she still does occasional interactive history units with 6- to12-year-olds at an after-school care centre but is otherwise retired and able to concentrate on writing.



Michelle Lee

Art Director


Michelle Lee is the cover artist for BWL Publishing Inc.   She is the artistic one; which is odd, given that even with a ruler she can’t draw a straight line.  But let her open up a graphics program, and watch out.  Creating graphics is a labor of love.  As much as she may complain about creating covers for certain genres - there is a simple joy in creating a face for a story, which is what a cover does.  With her designs, she hopes to provide the wrapping for the gift an author creates.
