Launching in 2018, Little Portland Press is an independent book publisher that focuses on young adult (YA) and new adult (NA) mysteries, thrillers, romance, and chick lit, with adolescent identity, coming of age, and self-discovery being at the forefront. We are particularly interested in stories with a unique format or voice.

Our titles are distributed by Macmillan, one of the largest book distributors in the world. Our books are available at major online retailers around the world. Several imprints are released simultaneously in print and digitally using print-on-demand technology.

Little Portland Press guides readers from the halls of high school into the crazy world beyond. We want books that help guide readers through critical decision making and growth. With lead characters typically ranging from 14-24, we publish books that focus on the surprises life brings. We want books that capture the emotions and complexities of young people balancing the world of work and family, but with messages that apply to any age. We want our books to enrich the lives of readers and teach them something about the world or life. Our characters are typically navigating adulthood, searching for love, moving away from their parents, going away to college, and/or securing a full-time job for the first time.

We appreciate diversity in characters and settings. LGBTQ encouraged and welcome!
