What is Barking Deer Press?

Barking Deer Press is a boutique and invitation-only publisher focused on curating a small, high-quality group of authors. We work with those we’ve met in person, are introduced to by one of our current authors, or we think would be a fantastic addition to our press.


Why should I buy books from Barking Deer Press Authors?
