What is your legacy?

Sharktooth Press is a micro-imprint that turns your story into a book to provide you with a legacy that will live on into the future.

Because we know that digital provides a more convenient way to read, while we also realize human beings need touch—a craving that a printed book satisfies—we produce both electronic and print publications.

Can we help you validate your legacy?

Working with SharktoothPress

A life takes many twists and turns, seemingly random events lead to others that, over time, creates a story of your life.

We help you organize and publish your story in book format from blog posts, poems, drawings, essays and journal—each piece helping to preserve your story as you wish it to be told.

It starts with a collection of writings that you already have. We help you collate them, create chapters, edit for continuity, and provide you and your loved ones an indelible work that will endure through generations.

The process of creating a book may seem daunting, but it starts with a “yes, I want a book that tells the story of my life.” Take a look at our three options to see which best suits the way your work. Let us worry about the details like creating a publishing file and a cover, reserving an ISBN number and various other mechanics to draw your story from your spirit onto the printed page.

Shoebox approach
We liken our approach to your legacy book as a shoebox of mementos. Put your essays, poems, drawings in a “shoebox” and let us unpack these elements to turn them into chapters in your tale so far.

Digital bits can disappear. Ink is forever.

About SharktoothPress

SharktoothPress was created by a couple of writers who were frustrated with the seemingly complicated process of getting a book created from a collection of blog posts. Traditional publishing houses demanded proposals and agents while vanity press houses made the whole thing very complicated with extensive spreadsheets of do-it-yourself tasks. We found the to-do list paralyzed people into not starting to create a book, trapping their story forever in a digital blog, journals or worse, in their heads, without ever being told.

We just wanted a book or two that contained our lives, our legacy, our story that says “this is who I am.”

We’ve honed the process down to a formula that takes your writings, organizes them and creates a book without the pressures of the mechanics. We don’t sell books. We focus on ordinary people who would like to publish their story as a book, but may not be all that interested in selling in quantity — or at all — though we feel many stories of “ordinary lives” could be best sellers. By focusing on creating the product instead of the sales, we free you as the author to tell your story without the pressures of the book market.

Your story could be as short as 30 pages or as long as 300. It is your story; you tell it as you want. We’ll handle the mechanics of getting it into print.

A teeny, tiny publishing house but just the right size for really smart, discriminating writers.
