It’s been 11 years since first I launched Five Rivers Publishing. I’ve been proud to publish over 70 books in that time, by some 30 authors. That catalogue has ranged from science fiction and fantasy, historical and mainstream fiction, detective and horror, and non-fiction covering everything from how to write effectively, historical and modern cookery, and investigative research into wrongful convictions.
A Common Thread
What has been common through all these publications is the championing of underdogs and little-known events, voices which might otherwise have gone unheard. Whether Nate Hendley’s vitally important investigation into the wrongful conviction of Ron Moffatt during the 1950s in his book The Boy on the Bicycle, or D.G. Laderoute’s remarkable and engaging YA fictions Out of Time and The Great Sky, these have all been books I’ve felt needed to be read, stories that needed to be told, and so I’ve given them a home and a platform.
Going forward into the next decade of publishing, it’s important to me to continue the important work I started back in 2008, and to raise that bar further.
