Writing a book you want to see published? With over 50 years of experience in marketing, design and publishing (both fiction and non-fiction), as well as writing our own works, we’ve been on both sides of the publishing fence. We know the quality and services you want from a publisher, and what the publisher needs from an author.
We recognize there are talented writers who may not choose the route of traditional publishing. At FIRESIDE PRESS, we believe every author deserves professional quality services to help them reach their goal of publication – no matter the depth of their pocket book.
Children’s, MG, YA, NA, Adult works from various genres.
FIRESIDE PRESS titles are regularly reviewed by First Steps Publishing for new, talented authors. While there is no guarantee of the number of titles First Steps signs each year, this is a way to get your foot in the door.
