Welcome to Giant Squid Books!

We are a small independent publishing company founded by readers to support writers.

We publish YA fiction in all genres: fantasy, science-fiction, and contemporary/realistic fiction, to name a few.

Our mission is to publish, support, and promote debut authors of diverse young adult fiction–and help them navigate the world of online publishing.

Our books are available as ebooks for Kindle or in epub directly from us, and in paperback from Amazon, Indiebound, Barnes and Noble and other online booksellers.

Book reviews, author interviews, and other bookish thoughts can be found on our blog
