We're a group of local authors published by small presses.

We want to spread the word about avant-garde books, stories of places we love, and genre-bending fiction.


We are accepting new authors to join us.

If you're:

  • Published by a small/regional press,

  • Writing about a place you've lived and loved, 

  • Looking for an affordable way to market your books to a wider audience, and

  • Raring to support other local authors and spread the word about great local reads as a team,

We'd love to hear from you!

We focus on small-press writers and seek to support the small and regional presses that support local authors.  

Because of various constraints, any materials submitted as part of the membership application cannot be returned. We do require submission of any book you'd like to see featured here, but we will not be able to return such books to you.

We curate our membership and limit membership by region and in duration.
