Little Creek Press is a welcome and growing force in regional publishing, and its owner, Kristin Mitchell, is among the most talented and capable in the industry. She creates gorgeous cookbooks and steers writers through the maze of book publishing with enthusiasm, resourcefulness, and responsiveness. Whether you’re a new or seasoned author, I don’t think you’ll find a better partner, nor a better company to work with.

From the beginning concept of my series to the polished finished product, Little Creek Press has produced books that I am proud to present to the public. I trust their professionalism and knowledge of the publishing world to produce a book that is appealing to a broad range of readers. Working with them is such a satisfying experience. Thanks LCP!

From the moment of my first phone call with Kristin, I knew I had arrived at the perfect place to fulfill my publishing needs. As Kristin listened to the details of my project, the enthusiasm and encouragement in her voice were palpable. Long before that first call ended, I knew I need look no longer, and I could barely wait to get started. Kristin loves what she does, and by the time the collaboration is done, you have a beautiful book AND a new friend!

Little Creek Press went above and beyond in assisting us through the book publishing process, having been first-time authors. Speaking specifically to the editing process, LCP always responded in a timely manner with thorough instruction on what was needed to keep the process moving along. In many ways LCP brought ease to what would normally be a stressful project—we were so blessed to have them supporting our dreams!

Kristin’s design of our book cover was “off-the-charts,” which I am sure has helped sell our book. We have a collection of 40 to 50 positive comments about our book, but our favorite was from a former CEO of one of our major customers who, after receiving a copy of our book, wrote back to us and simply said, "WOW!!" We couldn’t be more pleased.

If you have dreamt about publishing a book, well, hold on tight because it's about to become real. Kristin's patience, guidance, encouragement, and patience (yes, it deserves double-mention) more than deserved her spot in my acknowledgments section! Without Little Creek Press, I have no doubt that my story would have remained on a thumb drive, perhaps forever.
Author of The Isle of Stuck Faces
When Francesco and I started working together on The Osteria Papavero Cookbook, I immediately thought of Little Creek Press. Kristin gave us example layouts, so our photographer Sunny Frantz could shoot specifically to the design (which sped up the process). Kristin was transparent, responsive, and easy to work with, and I'm so pleased with how the book turned out. I'd work with LCP again in a heartbeat!

LCP edited, designed, and advised on printers and printing in a clear and professional manner for my Mineral Point Darlington Road book. I am a first-time author, and it was a pleasure working with Kristin. She has years of experience, and I would definitely recommend her as a publisher.
Author of Along The Old Darlington Road
A book is more than a collection of printed pages. When done right, all of its elements—cover design, typefaces, illustrations, paper, layout—should act as one to support the author’s purposes. In my experience with Little Creek Press, I found that Kristin Mitchell fully understood the aspirations I had for my manuscript, and she worked collaboratively and professionally with me to produce a book that beautifully served those aspirations.
Author of An Accidental Jewel
Working with Kristin Mitchell and Little Creek Press on the release of my memoir has been a delight from start to finish. Beginning with an initial meeting, to collaboration with editing, graphic design and artwork, Kristin is a pro who cares. The attention to quality and detail are outstanding. Whether you’re a veteran of the industry or publishing your first book, you cannot go wrong with Little Creek Press.
Author of More: A Memoir
Writing a book can be emotionally taxing. You put so much love into each detail while simultaneously fighting the fears that surface after every realization that you are getting closer to publishing. Kristin at Little Creek Press became the light at the end of my dark tunnel. She helped me breathe as she led me through the process of physically bringing my story to life. To hold my book in my hands for the first time, to smell the pages and feel the energy of MY book was incredible. I thank Kristin for taking my hand and guiding me to the finish line.
Author of She's Done Pretending
There are so many unknowns in the book publishing world and as a first-time author, it was intimidating to move from the finished manuscript to having a published book. I had way more positive experiences than challenging ones working with Little Creek Press. The combination of personal care and professionalism made me feel at ease and confident in the next steps and with our timeline. Best of all, Kristin is a genius book cover designer. Her ability to listen, play, and not give up made the biggest difference for me and how absolutely thrilled I still am every time I admire my book. I highly recommend working with Little Creek Press for your publishing needs.
