Welcome to Culicidae Press

For us publishing means to make public, to share with the world what you as author have created over many months, moons, and years. And unlike most publishers, we think of the relationship with you, our author, as a partnership in which both of us are equal collaborators who want to share ideas and stories widely, while benefitting equally.

We are also a peer-reviewed, Better-Business-Bureau-accredited publishing house, started in Ames, Iowa, in 2005 to serve creative writers and their readers worldwide. We do take publishing seriously, but we also have fun designing books, sharing stories with authors, and hearing back from their readers how a particular book changed their life. Such is the power of books…If you are interested in working with us, please drop us a line.

If you came to browse, please explore our current catalogue by clicking on any of the book covers below, find what you’re looking for by choosing a genre from the menu above (choose from our wide range of categories), and don’t be shy about letting us know what you think—and read—using the social icons in the header and footer of this web page. Happy reading to everyone!
