Welcome to Deviance Press

Your one-stop shop for self-publishing

At Deviance Press, we take care of the chores of publishing so you can focus on what you’re good at: creating stories. Built upon the idea that every writer’s voice is unique and exceptional in its own right, Deviance Press believes every artist deserves a chance to be found and heard. We’ll help you get there.

From start to finish, Deviance Press’s owner Kristen Forbes will help with all your publishing needs, including editing, interior formatting, cover design, publishing assistance, and marketing.

Founded by a former contractor for Amazon’s Createspace, we don’t think self-publishing should be a one-person effort. Reach out to us today for personalized assistance!
