We love revealing covers...it's one of our favorite things about publishing. Summing up an entire book to one single image that encapsulates the story is a hard thing to do. It's torturous for many authors, because it's essential to get it right. But boy does it feel good when it turns out PERFECTLY!!! Congrats, Mandy Urena, on your perfect cover!! We love it!
TOUCHY, FEELY, SQUEEZY: Musings of a Masseuse by Mandy Urena
We were extraordinarily lucky to meet Lori in person at the Southern California Writers' Conference. The moment we heard her read from her memoir we knew it was gold. Not to mention, she's just the most lovable person. We tried to hold it inside, but we reeeeeaaaaallly wanted her to sign with us, and we are SOOO happy that she did!! Lori had many many options available to her, and at Acorn, we truly want what is best for every author out there. We're authors ourselves, so we know how hard it can be to commit one way or the other. That being said, we are thrilled to give Lori's book a home.
When Lori was 19 years old she started working summers as a waitress in Yosemite Natio...

We originally met Gene at WonderCon, one of our favorite events to sell Acorn Publishing books. It must have been fate, because we met Gene again at the Irvine Southern California Writers Conference this September.
As soon as we read his work, we knew. Not only is Gene a great writer, but he has an intriguing background that enriches his work.
He grew up in St. Thomas and St. Croix and believes that world has a lot to offer, beyond the obvious tourist attractions, that most people never experience.
Gene has had several short stories accepted for publication in digital and print magazines. He has a B.A. in English and a J.D. from Tulane Law School, and likes writing about the...
Congrats to Acorn author, Holly Kammier, on the release of her newest book, CHOOSING HOPE!
CHOOSING HOPE isn’t the everyday love story. It isn’t a prince charming swooping in to save the day or love at first sight and a happily ever after. In real life, love hurts, in good ways and bad. The head and the heart don’t always see eye to eye. Choosing Hope is a beautifully crafted novel that will take you on a heart-breaking journey full of hard choices, the dark feverish passion of an affair, and all the anguish that comes with it. Despite the main character’s inner conflict, Kammier does an amazing job leaving readers feeling empowered and uplifted.
