Here's something you don't see often: a new book publisher! But it is true. A new book publisher for literary and historical fiction is opening up in Edmonton:
Stonehouse Publishing is open for business, with plans to publish its first five titles in the spring of 2016.
Friends Netta Johnson and Julie Yerex started the press in part to address what they see as a gap in the market for historical and literary fiction. Both are avid readers of historical fiction set in western Europe, and book lovers generally. They’re also avid volunteers and moms. They decided to team up as publishing partners to address what Yerex calls a ‘crisis-y’ feeling about what to do next in life. “We were both drawn to the idea of moving in a new direction,” Johnson added.
