The Chicory Press Difference

We work with our authors every step of the way--before, during, and after their book launch. We help to guide them throughout the writing process, editing, design, and marketing. By giving them the right tools and support, we take pride in setting them up for success.

We Stand By Your Work

We only take on projects we truly believe in...stories that are sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of our readers. The Chicory Press logo on the spine of a book is a mark of quality, and we stand proudly behind all of our carefully-selected works

Our experienced teams of editors, designers, and others will ensure that you'll have the best in the industry in your corner, making your work the best it can be. We only work with the most qualified professionals, and will put together a team of experts that are specifically tailored to you and your needs.
