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, Tennessee, the oldest town in Tennessee, and the home of the International Storytelling Center. Mountain Gap is new to the publishing game, but we have our hopes. Our first book, Rhea Wells Boy of Jonesborough will be released in January 2018. We’re making plans for two-four more titles this year and will be filling our 2019 publishing schedule in the fall of 2018. Stay tuned for more.
