About

Thrift Stories is a self-publishing author collective.

We specialize in the kinds of stories that traditional publishers don’t know what to do with: Realistic fantasy, steampunk, members of formulaic genres that don’t fit the formula, etc.. Big publishers can’t afford to experiment, but we can.

We believe there are too many potential authors trapped in cubicles, typing secret notes for their novels when they think the boss isn’t looking. We believe there are too many potential authors who come home from work too tired to pursue their dreams. We believe there are too many potential authors who were talked out of writing by well meaning adults when they were too young to realize what they were giving up.

We want to help you find the stories you lost inside of yourself, or didn’t know you had, and then we want to help you publish them.
