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 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 almost Summer 2019, and we’re up to four titles. This will grow to six by year’s end, and we’re planning our 2020 schedule. Stay tuned for more.
