Introducing Glenmere Press

We’re a small press publishing a few titles each year. Our quality trade paperbacks and eBooks are digitally produced to exacting standards.

We maintain editorial control over what we publish, working in close partnership with our authors instead of answering to corporate gatekeepers. Because our list is small, production is fast, and we can respond quickly to shifts in the marketplace and to emerging production and distribution challenges.

In order to offer readers alternatives to the mainstream market, we look for unique voices, foster emerging authors, and attend to design input. We make sure readers find our books  and that they stay in print. We keep on top of what’s happening in the world of publishing, and offer our authors a better deal.

Our newest release . . .

Anne of the Fens (The Bradstreet Chronicles)Gretchen Gibbs’ Anne of the Fens  a fictionalized YA historical romance based on written records. Second in The Bradstreet Chronicles, it tells the story of Gibbs’ ancestor, the girl who would grow up to become America’s first published poet, Anne Bradstreet.

“The passion for her predecessor in life and letters is clear in Gibbs’ novel,” says Jenny Maloney, reviewer for Macmillan’s criminalelement.com. “Gibbs does a lovely job setting the tone of the piece early on. The language is formal – rather like Witch of Blackbird Pond, in tone and Puritanical subject matter (though with more romantic underpinnings) – and evokes the historical sense of the day. . . Gibbs uses [the opening sequence] to introduce Anne as a girl with more than a passing interest in men and the Bard himself, Shakespeare.”

Anne of the Fens is now available in paperback and ebook at all online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble,  iBookstore, Google Play Books, Kobo, Powells, Books-a-Million.
