Small press, large ambition

The BumblePuppy Press is an Ottawa-based publisher. We are not restricted by genre but by a respect for story-telling and for characters a reader can care about; for good books, in short.

The November 2013 publication of The Old Man’s Last Sauna, followed by the 2019 release of Black Grass marked our baby steps into the world of publishing fiction. 2022 promises to see us greatly expand. Look for a new novel by Carl Dow, Wildflowers: The Women Who Made McCord Chronicle, and Cascade, the first book of a remarkable fantasy trilogy my new writer Rachel Rosen, with more to come that we can’t (yet) talk about.

Our books will take advantage of the new technologies that allow (almost) anyone to own a “printing press” and to keep their books available over the long haul, for readers around the world.

We hope you will explore what we have to offer now and that you will return to taste the offerings to come. There are many, many stories in this world. We hope you will be there to share in our discoveries.
