Quality Independent Publishing

Piscataqua Press is a project of RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (on the banks of the Piscataqua river).  We provide an easy, personalized and dependable way to publish your book.

We try to meet your need. For some authors, this will involve paid hourly work to help you be your own publisher, giving you full control over the book we help you produce. You can read about that HERE.

For other authors, who need more hand-holding, this will involve publishing under our Piscataqua Press imprint, with the press acting as a full partner. Over the past eight years, we have produced more than 200 titles! We’ve gotten pretty good at it and yes, in most cases, we ask the author to pay us for our services.  This is often decried as “vanity publishing.” In our view, if you are an independent author you will need to hire an editor, a cover designer, and do all of the administration yourself. That’s what being an independent author means. We just provide all of those services in one place, at a price that we think is very reasonable. You can read more about that HERE.

We love to talk about all aspects of independent publishing, so contact us with any questions about us, our process, or just about the state of the publishing industry in general. 603-431-2100 or Info@piscataquapress.com
