Jan-Carol Publishing is a cooperative between a small independent publishing group and a motivated force of authors. In 2003, Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc created and marketed a women's magazine called Voice Magazine for Women in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. In 2012, Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc expanded into book publishing and acquired the brands Mountain Girl Press, Little Creek Books, Express Editions, DigiStyle, and RoseHeart Publishing.
Mountain Girl Press was created in 2005 as a small press aimed at publishing quality fiction written by the women of Appalachia. Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc. continues this imprint with the mission to publish fiction and short stories that celebrate the wit, humor, and strength of both old-time and modern Appalachian women. Our other imprints include Little Creek Books and Heirloom Editions, as well as Skippy Creek, which focuses on children's books, Fiery Night, our romance imprint, and Broken Crow Ridge, an imprint for fantasy and science fiction stories. We do offer an imprint for authors specifically interested in publishing e-books, and even an imprint under the name Express Editions for authors with expertise to share "how-tos" and spiritual guidance. With our wide array of imprints we can provide a happy home for any author or book!
