About MGB

Mountain Gap Books sprang from a simple idea— Appalachian authors need a platform set in Appalachia. We’re an Appalachia-based independent publisher located in the small town of Jonesborough, the oldest town in Tennessee, and the home of the International Storytelling Center. Mountain Gap is still relatively new to the publishing game, but we have our hopes. Our first book, Rhea Wells Boy of Jonesborough was released in January 2018. It’s now Fall 2019, and we’re up to six titles. We’re planning on six releases next year including two children’s titles, three novels, and another anthology.

Keep your eye on us because we’re going places!
