FlyingBks_AshesRaincloud Press is a small, alternative press publishing books with themes such as racial and religious diversity, memoir, PTSD, feminism, and LGBTQ-related fiction, to name a few. We aim to bring you beautifully written fiction and non-fiction—Works that will inspire, move and enrich our readers.

Raincloud Press was born during the epic drought in the Central Valley of California and rain clouds were on everyone’s minds. We at Raincloud Press love rain! We love clouds! In fact, we believe you can’t have one without the other. Just like you can’t have great books without small, alternative presses that publish books by authors writing outside the box.

RaincloudWe publish poetry, literary fiction, memoir, graphic novels and young adult offerings to print and ebooks. We were established in January 2014, and published two titles in 2014. We took 2015 to prepare three major titles releasing in 2016. From now on, we plan to publish 2-4 books a year by various authors. If you don’t see our books at your local bookstore (There are over 300,000 new titles published every year in the US!), then you can order them. Just tell them our books are available through Small Press United (a division of IPG), or find our titles on online sites (like Amazon and Barnes and Noble). You can also order our titles direct from the distributor using the phone number at the top of the screen or visit the ordering page.
