Innovations in Indie Publishing

Founded in 1998 by Garland Hargrove, StoneThread Publishing has been through many iterations. Three times it rose from the ashes of its former self, each time becoming something better than it was before. One aspect of StoneThread Publishing that has never wavered is our commitment to our readers.

Do you enjoy ebooks?

All of our titles are available in all electronic formats, including Kindle, Nook, Apple and PDF. Other formats are available on request.

Do you prefer library-quality trade paperbacks?

Our trade paperbacks are all 5 x 8, perfect bound, printed on premium cream or white paper. Typeset for the best possible reading experience, the typeface is Georgia 10 point.

Do you prefer paperbacks but without the higher pricetag?

Our Pocket Novels are similar in size to mass-market paperbacks at 4.25 x 6.75 inches. But they are printed on the same high-quality paper as our trade paperbacks. The typeface is Georgia 9.5 point.
