Major publishers have merged and become increasingly driven by shareholders’ need for a great quarter. Bookstores have closed and the market for new writing is becoming increasingly risk averse.

At Point Defiance Press, we are interested in more than appeal to the mass market. We aim to offer writing with an important message. Starting in 2014, we will offer non-fiction and fiction of writers with unique voices and an ability to show us the world from new vistas.

Though we are what the writing world calls a traditional publisher, our vision for our writers and books is not traditional.  We look for writing that we can nurture, love and watch grow.  Our writers will always maintain the right to take their published works and sell them to larger publishers with larger marketing capacity. We invest in writing that we believe has great potential and we do not control writers’ future options.
