Tidal Press is an independent publishing house founded in 2014. Like the tides on which our name is based, our books will pull you into their worlds or push you away from shore, depending on your point of view.  Either way, you might end up in deep water. So long as you can swim, you'll be fine.

We are a story-telling press. We are passionate about books that explore the life of the underdog, the outsider, the seeker, the unsettled. In this sense, our books are united loosely by theme, not genre. Which is to say, if you like one of our books, there is a better than 50% chance you will like all of our books. Books we publish ask questions, and they make you feel less alone. They make you feel, period. And think. And sometimes, they are funny. Because without a little humor, the big questions can crush you.

Therefore, our mission is:

  1. To offer readers beautifully crafted works of fiction and non-fiction from writers, often women, who use authentic and unique voices to weave the elemental themes of our modern lives into great stories that are well-written.
  2. To offer writers a true publishing partnership, so they are less alone.
  3. To offer the world the benefit of fulfilled readers and writers walking the streets. This is how art changes lives.

Novels, short story collections, visual and verbal essay collections, and the occasional memoir or biography will be our focus. 

Tidal Press is a proud member of the Community of Literary Presses and Magazines. Laura Jones is the founder of Tidal Press. She is an attorney by training, a former art gallery owner and long time writer and editor.
