Welcome to Five Directions Press

Why five directions? Eurasian cosmology regards the center as a fifth direction that harmonizes north, south, east, and west. As a writers’ cooperative dedicated to producing and sharing high-quality books of many genres, we blend our diverse interests into a harmonious whole, a goal reflected in the image of the five directions.

Turns out we are not the only writers who came up with the cooperative idea. Triskele Books, a UK-based authors’collective, is hosting an interview with us on their blog (and answering our questions). They have some great books, too, so take a look.

Five Directions Press welcomes a new author, Hillard W. Pouncy, Jr., whose photo memoir, My Life as a Tuskegee Airman, we published in March 2014. At the moment, we have no plans to release this memoir as an e-book because it would display well only on full-color devices.

For a lovely review of Seeking Sophia, which also topped a list of twelve books not to miss in 2013, see Words with JAM.

The Golden Lynx appears on the 2013 Summer Reading List for Swarthmore College, one of the nation’s top liberal arts colleges, and was chosen as a Featured Author Group Read by Historical Fictionistas, a Goodreads group, in March 2013. We hope to release The Winged Horse, the first sequel to The Golden Lynx, in print and e-book editions in the spring of 2014.

For links to these and other books, see our Books page.
