In 2012, Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc expanded into book publishing and acquired the brands Mountain Girl Press, Little Creek Books and Express Editions. Jan-Carol Publishing is a cooperative between a small independent publishing group and a motivated force of authors.
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 imprint Little Creek Books strives to continue to offer publishing for a diverse selection of authors from a wide variety of genres including romance, children's books, poetry, mystery, historical fiction and more.
