Sassy Words. Extraordinary Stories

January 2019--Introducing Desert Dog Books, an independent publishing company for writers and artists working in fiction, nonfiction, handmade ephemera, and the book arts. Our goal is to present powerful voices that connect living things through the art of storytelling.

Our debut publication is the first nonfiction novel by Los Angeles artist and writer, Carol Es. Her book, Shrapnel in the San Fernando Valley will be available in April 2019. Special, limited edition hardcovers will be for sale in March only on the Desert Dog Books website.

Our website features the Desert Dog story, the authors we support, and a news page--updated as we grow into our new skin. For more information, visit our website at, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, G+ and ello (@desertdogbooks).

Desert Dog Books would like to acknowledge the National Arts and Disability Center and the California Arts Council for their funding in getting us started. Thank you.
