News and Information of Interest...


Penumbra Publishing is PERMANENTLY CLOSED for submissions effective January 2016.

Since January 2009 we have enjoyed helping new authors get their books published and have amassed a large catalog of available books. Due to staffing and other issues, we've made the difficult decision to cease active publishing.

We are running a skeleton crew in transition from royalty-paying publisher to author cooperative. Our website will persist for our authors, but we are in the process of discontinuing direct purchase to transform our website into an information/pricing portal only. As always, books featured on our website can be purchased via our online retail distributors like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords (Apple, Kobo, Diesel, etc.). The beauty of online distribution is that a book will never be out of print as long as the author wants to make it available.

We value our authors and encourage readers to enjoy their books as they continue writing and sharing their work. Visit our website often to see new books and find out more about our authors and their work. It has been a pleasure providing publishing services for the past seven years, and we hope to enjoy reading new work from our authors for many years to come.
