Voices of the Region

Preserving local history and amplifying regional authors.

We pride ourselves on being a press with the freedom to publish work from a wide range of voices. Two avenues of publishing – client and house-published – help authors achieve their dreams. With client projects, clients approach us with a manuscript, while house-published projects are a general concept that we develop, then publish.

Call Me Morgue

by Morgan Moran

Turns out the death industry isn’t as depressing as you’d think. Morgan Moran, author of Call Me Morgue, says people would be surprised by how much she laughs with her co-workers. But there are still a fair share of sad moments, of course, like crying over a dead lady’s foot. Based on the author’s blog, Call Me Morgue presents the “death lessons” Moran has learned as a mortician’s apprentice in an effort to normalize death, dying and loss.
