Vineyard Stories

Vineyard Stories is an Island publisher. I am based on Martha’s Vineyard, but more importantly, I take my inspiration from the Vineyard. The books I’ve published have been about artists or boat builders or cooks or farms or birding or the history of the Vineyard. We provide a full range of services. We are very opinionated, and we often turn books away we don’t think will sell. We store and sell what we create. And we often hire all the talent to get a book done: artists, photographers, writers, designers, editors.
