Last Chapter Press is a 100% women owned, independent publishing house that specializes in marketable romance. 

We are dedicated to promoting and amplifying diverse voices within the romance genre, actively encouraging POC, LGBT, and marginalized authors to share their stories and unique perspectives, fostering inclusiveness and representation within the romance literature landscape.

We cater to a discerning reader base seeking romance stories that are free from distressing storylines excluding abuse, kidnapping, or threats from our stories. We offer a diverse selection of steamy and sweet romance stories, with the exciting addition of LGBTQIA stories in 2024.

In 2024, our primary focus will be on supporting our authors in enhancing their writing skills, marketability, and achieving a healthier work-life balance. To facilitate this, every author will have the opportunity to engage in a one-on-one coaching session and quarterly phone calls for significant lessons from guest speakers. Our comprehensive marketing plan entails additional advertising and promotional initiatives, including the incorporation of translations and audio formats. 

We are a full-service press operating out of the Heartland in Omaha, Nebraska.

We offer publishing for short stories, novellas, full-length novels, and multi-author collaborations and series. With a wide range of publishing experience, Last Chapter Press can offer an author the ability to focus on writing and still find a place in the publishing world. And every reader will find a story that will make their heart pound through the last word of that last chapter.

Last Chapter Press is not a vanity or hybrid publisher and there is no payment required from any author.
