Welcome to the Arachis Press
We are a small press, publishing quality books for all ages. To browse our catalog, please go to the Books page or visit the Store at our distributor’s site.
The Arachis Press publishes a range of books, both nonfiction and fiction, as well as children’s books and poetry. We offer contemporary mainstream novels, mysteries, and literary fantasy. Please feel free to browse our catalog, here or at our store.
We hope to offer a variety of books, both entertaining and thoughtful, at reasonable prices. We do not add huge markups to our costs, and all our ebooks are free to download.
At this time, our books are offered in print and ebook. We sell the print editions at our store, and at vendors across the internet. Most could also be ordered at physical book stores, as they have ISBNs and are listed in Books in Print. The ebooks are all free downloads.
Just what is an arachis and why would one press it? Well, it is not the planet in the sci-fi novel, ‘Dune.’ That would be Arrakis. Also, the accent is on the first syllable so it is not pronounced the same. Arachis is actually the scientific name for the peanut, coming from a Greek word meaning a seed. Since we are physically located on Peanut Road and we like the idea of growing things and hope to plant a few seeds with our books, Arachis Press seemed a good choice. Arachis Press was founded by artist and author Stephen Brooke, who conceived of it originally as a small poetry press. We soon expanded to include novels, nonfiction, and children’s books.
