Whether you are sitting around a fire or at your local watering hole with friends, curled up with a paperback or spinning a bedtime yarn on the fly – what matters is the story. The rest is just the distribution method. And thanks to eBooks, distribution just got a whole lot easier. Indie publishers have direct access to their readers. Readers have access to books at substantially reduced prices. And the trees are breathing a whole lot easier.

Pectopah Publications is excited to be part of it. But we haven’t thrown the baby out with the bathwater. We still believe in peer-review vetting, story editors, copy editors, graphic designers and publicity. We like plot development, complicated characters, poignant moments and some laughs. And like everyone else – we love a good story.
