Who We Are

We are a New Zealand based publishing company that is interested in quality books and the joy of reading, not turning a quick profit. To find out more about us, visit the page of the same name.

Thank You

As you may or may not be aware, C.S. Woolley recently held a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund the cover revamp of her Cozy Mystery and Viking Middle Grade series’. The campaign was successful, and this was down in no small part to the following people:

  • Bryan Cohen
  • Vicki Painter
  • Jon and Liz Malpass
  • Andy Mitchell
  • Helen and Richard
  • Jane Louise
  • Robert and Ally
  • Lesley Finlay
  • Hollie Turner
  • Penelope Wallace
  • Heather and Rotha
  • Alison and Steve
  • Samuel Stephens


  • Jon Beets

Thanks to this group of amazing backers, the project raised NZ$5,560 which has allowed C.S. Woolley to redo the covers on her Cozy Mystery books and begin giving the Viking Middle Grade books the illustrated covers that they deserve.
