About Storybites Press

Storybites Press was originally founded in late 2016 to publish my own children’s book, Come Dance by the Light of the Moon (which still isn't done). But in the meantime, a poetry manuscript landed in my lap, and Scott Lee Marshall’s Rhymes to Reason became Storybites Press’ initial publication. While I continue to toil on my self-illustrated children’s book, I’ve also published two mystery novels and a novella, as well as a children's chapter book. These were printed by Amazon's KDP division, which is very good at talking novices through a complicated process. But I'd also be willing to look at very short manuscripts (booklet-size, 32 pages or less) with very short press runs (50 copies or less) that can be folded, stapled, and neatly trimmed. Examples include poetry chapbooks, family memoirs, children's stories and the like. I would produce those in-house (and I literally mean in my house, at my dining room table) so they would not look like they came from a professional book printer's. But they would look lovingly and painstakingly designed and constructed, and heirloom hand-knit sweaters don’t look like they came from the mall, do they? Contact me if you’d like to learn more.


Note: We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. You need to query first.
