About Us

Penn Yan Press strives to publish books that make a positive difference in our world by entertaining readers.

Our books enlighten, entertain, and, (hopefully) enrich our readers.

Since 2011, Penn Yan Press has been an independent book publishing company focusing on small market Cooperative Publishing.

Cooperative Publishing allows us to work with high-quality manuscripts that will take considerable time to prepare for publication.  We provide services such as editing, typesetting, proofreading, design/layout and illustrations and then market the finished product on the Penn Yan Press website in physical (hardback, paperback) format, and electronic format as well.  Under the Cooperative Publishing model, we may ask the author to share some of the production costs.

For authors who prefer to self-publish and market, we can still provide whatever services you might require (editing, typesetting, proofreading, design/layout, illustrations, etc.).
We can also help you obtain your own International Standard Book Number (ISBN), help with securing a printing outlet, and assistance with creating an eBook version of the work.

If you would like to consider publishing with us, please browse through our current titles to see if your manuscript would be a good fit.


  • Typesetting: We use state-of-the-art software, providing you with the type style and type size that best fit the particular requirements of your book.
  • Proofreading: Every manuscript is carefully proofread to ensure accuracy with your original manuscript.
