Welcome To Rise & Read Publishing

Rise & Read Publishing is a small, author-created publishing label with the purpose to share stories and expand perspectives through reading and expression. Our books are soul touching fiction and non-fiction tales of struggle, perseverance, overcoming temptation, greed, and more.

We all have a story to tell, and a connection to each other. Together, we can Rise Up as we enrich each reader’s consciousness.

Inspire, Challenge, and Entertain the reader’s soul.

We invite you to Rise, Read, Relate, and Repeat.
