About Northwest Passage Books

Northwest Passage Books began as a self-publishing imprint for various educational resources that I created for use in my college classroom.

While working on one of those projects, a textbook on logic called "Clear and Present Thinking", I put together a great team of experienced and amazing people and together we produced a really good book. In fact we raised almost $17,000 on Kickstarter for the project: around 250% of our initial goal. Two years later, we did it again, raising more than $5,000, 160% of our goal, for a nonfiction project.

And now, what I did for myself, I want to do for others too. That's what "Northwest Passage Books" is all about. We specialize in helping independent writers polish and perfect their work, at a reasonable cost.

Most members of the team are creative people, and most of us also have graduate degrees in our fields, so we know what needs to be done, and we know how to do it well. And if we can't do it, we can put you in touch with others who can. Whether fiction or nonfiction, whether the project is big or small, whether you already know what you're doing or whether you don't know where to start, we can help.
