Dear Readers and Writers...

We are a small, not-for-profit indie publisher of provocative, engaging literature, non-fiction, and verse for the discerning reader of any age or interest.

Think of the books you’ll take on a vacation, curl up with over a long snowy weekend, encourage your friends to read, and buy multiple copies to give as gifts. The ones you keep on your shelf, ready to read again or share with a friend. These are the books we offer.

Who We Are

We are lovers of reading, of writing, and of the printed word. We love the smell of books, the feel of crisp paper; we like to take our reading material everywhere we go. We’ve embraced all forms of media because what’s portable is useful, and electronics helps to preserve old manuscripts for future generations.

Our mission at Propertius Press is to enrich the lives of readers around the world through fostering and stimulating an appreciation for the diversity of literature, non-fiction, and verse, and to offer a platform for talented writers of all walks of life.

We provide the reading public with an expanding collection of engaging works by new and established writers, especially those from cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds that are historically underrepresented by traditional publishers.
