For Readers (and potential readers)
Chapbooks are a quick read any time, any place, any where kind of fun. Read them on your coffee break, while waiting in a queue or sitting alone in a restaurant, while sitting on the lava-story or on a train. Or, like most of our readers, enjoy them at home before bed or instead of the TV. They contain stories short enough for you to finish quick time.
If you are interested in the history of chapbooks be sure to check out the “chapbook examples” category on our blog – here’ are two wonderful examples; “Chapbooks of the eighteenth century” and the interesting history of Thomas Gent from Yorkshire – Yorkshire Chap-books
We are independent chapbook publishers (launched 2 April 2014) who create and promote handmade flash fiction chapbooks containing very short stories for adult readers. What is a chapbook?
We also sell eBooks: We will also be selling fiction and nonfiction eBooks via our online store in 2015.
Chapbooks are more traditionally used by poets but as Chapbook Publishers we believe any writer of short stories and flash fiction can use them to promote their work.
Our aim is to develop chapbooks that are an engaging quick read and promote a love of reading through our diverse range of material.
Our mission is to promote the pleasures of reading and the joys of the imagination by publishing chapbooks that are low cost but high value.
“There is no doubt fiction makes a better job of the truth”
