Welcome, fans of good books!
This blog offers news about Crickhollow Books author events, reviews, occasional special offers or sales programs, and other useful bits.
Crickhollow Books is an indie book publisher, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. And though we aren’t exclusively Midwestern in subject matter, we are pretty much Midwestern in spirit.
Our books are neighborly, pretty good in quality (to say more would be unseemly), and grounded in a practical side. But they always have time to enjoy a good story, well told.
We publish a variety of fiction and nonfiction, as long as it is good writing and has good purpose. In other words, we might not change the world in large ways . . . but maybe we can in small ways, one reader at a time.
In nonfiction, a special focus is on books and booklets of practical advice for writers. We’re also on the look-out for select manuscripts on nature/adventure, history, cultural heritage, and spirituality topics, and all types of how-to books that serve personal and professional needs.
In fiction, Crickhollow seeks to publish a range of literary, commercial, and genre fiction for all ages, with a focus on good storytelling.
We also offer Crickhollow Books for Young Readers: mostly chapter books, with a strong element of cultural heritage.
We look forward to giving you a great reading experience!

And if you like one of our books . . . hey, I suppose we wouldn’t mind hearing about that. Don’t worry. Won’t get a swelled head. Wouldn’t be the Midwestern way.
