We LOVE Indie & Small Press Books!
Storyteller Alley is an online bookstore featuring only exceptional indie and small press books. It is our daily mission, and our pride and joy, to connect with new and experienced authors across a variety of genres. If you're looking for something new to read, we'd love the chance to introduce you to the amazing authors we work with. And don't worry, every book we sell is vetted by one of our genre critics and a genre curator. If they don't love it, we don't sell it. Which means you know you are always getting a quality book.
We Love our Readers!
We want our readers to feel appreciated and excited about supporting artisan authors. And we want to make reading not just something you do while you are waiting for the bus, but something you do for fun. In that vane, we've launched a line of Author Discovery Boxes and Discovery Packs designed to make reading an experience. And we offer a fun rewards program to prove how much we value our readers.
Author Discovery Boxes & Discovery Packs
Who doesn't love getting goodies in the mail? With our Author Discovery Boxes and Discovery Packs, we'll send you a vetted book (print or download) plus, small business products selected to help bring the book to life. If the story takes place near the ocean, we might send you a sea-scented candle. If it takes place in a bakery, you might get a cupcake kit. Each delivery promises the opportunity to discover a new author and helps to support both the indie author and small business community. Jump over to our site to see some of our current offerings.
(Our new line of Characters & Candles launches at the end of May!)
Hey Authors! Need Some Feedback?
One thing we know from working in this industry is how important it is for authors to get feedback from their readers. Every book submitted to our site for sale or for review receives feedback from our team. We'll tell you what we liked, what we didn't, and we might even suggest ways to make your book even better. Need more in-depth feedback. We've got a crack crew of beta readers and editors who love making every book we read as good as it can possibly be.
I was born an Air Force brat and grew up all over the world, but the one thing that was a part of my life, no matter where we lived, was books. A love of reading inspired a love of writing and somewhere along the way, I caught a case of entrepreneurship that I have never quite seemed to shake.
I am the former owner of Sensible Gourmet a gourmet food company that featured amazing gourmet food items from small businesses across the United States. Modeled after companies like Avon and Pampered Chef with a consultant-bases sales force, in its heyday, Sensible Gourmet had consultants in 35 states. There was a time when I thought I was on my way to becoming the most “Sensible” woman in America.
Several years later, I embraced the other passion in my life…writing. In pursuit of the dream to become a published author, I discovered a hidden talent for feedback and editing. In 2013, I launched First Page, Last Page, an editing service dedicated to helping indie authors polish their literary masterpieces. It reignited my entrepreneurial spirit and introduced me to the world of self-publishing.
In 2015, I launched Storyteller Alley. It has allowed me to merge my two passions – storytelling and small business.
I am a proud Army wife staring down the barrel of retirement…where have the last 20 years gone? Three amazing, snarky, and talented teenagers and an adorably stubborn Shih Tzu named “Q” call me mom. We live in possibly-my-forever-home just outside of Annapolis, MD.
