BullyBox_FrontCover-3Welcome to Elephant’s Bookshelf Press. We’re a traditional publisher of fiction and (eventually) nonfiction. Quality writing is the mainstay at EBP, and we pride ourselves on finding literary gems that might otherwise be overlooked.

The fall of is looking to be at least as exciting as the beginning of the year was. We are very excited to be launching our Colors for Causes series of anthologies. Starting with Tales from the Bully Box, which is geared for Middle Grade readers (roughly 10-14 years of age, give or take), we will be creating anthologies that have specific causes in mind. In this case, it is to combat bullying.

Inspired by a Minnesota teen who launched the BRAVE (Building Relationships Against Violence Everywhere) program in her school, editor Cat Woods has put together stories from writers who aim to make the world a safer, stronger place for everyone, regardless of where they came from or what they look like. To that end, EBP will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the anthology to organizations working in the field of bullying prevention. We have not yet finalized what organizations we will be working with, so we can’t announce them here yet, but stay tuned!

Billy Bobble-eCoverIn December, we will be publishing our latest novel, Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand, by R.S. Mellette. The cover includes a beautiful image from the very talented and award-winning illustrator Kirbi Fagan! Billy Bobble is available for pre-order now at Amazon.

In the meantime, we’re preparing to bring new, exciting books to our beloved readers in 2015. I can hardly wait!

At Elephant’s Bookshelf Press, we love to trumpet about great writers and great stories. Keep coming back to see what we’re raising our trunk for next!
