About

Our mission at Eighth Ripple Press is to provide quality, fun female-driven short stories to the public, and to provide female indie authors with an alternative outlet for sharing their work and building their platform.

Eighth Ripple Press is a small publisher of fiction focusing on strong female protagonists. We publish romance and mysteries that are contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy. We work with expert project managers, editors, and marketers to make our authors shine and give them the best possible reach to new readers.

Officially established in 2016, Eighth Ripple Press was developed out of Endera Publishing. Our first short story collection and full length novel will be available October 1, 2016.

We are located in Ottawa, Ontario, but we work with authors all over Canada and the U.S.

Our goal is to encourage new authors to show their work to the world. We want to inspire confidence in them, and give them an extra platform that will help them sell their self-published novels. Working with us allows them the chance to work with an editor (often for the first time) and set up and use their own marketing and social media, with help from experts.

Currently, we print three short story collections a year and work with our short story authors to publish their own long form novels.
