More Info

As a family, we would like to start a family business and purchase a space to run our business in and have as a home. We would like to pass on craftsmanship and enjoyable hard work for our children. We have a vision for a bookstore and independent press to open in our amazing community, full of the most kindest and wonderful people we have ever met. A loving and Christian bookstore would enrich our lives and hopefully our community. We have a huge homeschooling and church community and we want to serve these wonderful people and help as many people as possible.

Business Overview 

County Road Press is an independent press that handmakes each book we choose to publish and offers authors an opportunity to order their books in small batches in handmade format. We are unique because we are bringing back the lost artform of bookbinding and making authors stand out in a demanding market. Our customers are independent authors and aspiring authors as well as readers who are looking for something new and creative in the best selling world. The goal is to have a storefront for County Road Press to sell books by our authors, our handmade journals, and have special and first edition used books in stock for those who like the bookstore environment in a small town. Have an area for readers to spend time together, a small cafe with products brought in from a local baker, host talks with authors, and overall community fellowship.

 I am a poet who has published three books while trying to launch County Road Press and they have done fairly well for independently published poetry. I have also been accepted into the 2020 Goose River Press Anthology and was featured in Pendemic.

This fundraiser is enough to pully purchase a storefront and is ready to open very quickly and start this family-friendly and run business and serve the community.
