A Peek Behind the Pages

Who We Are

Our History

48fourteen launched in the summer of 2011 and has published over 30 titles, as of 2017. Initially, 48fourteen was an eBook-only publishing company and later expanded to include print. (We couldn’t resist the perfume of a brand new book.) Our team of incredibly imaginative authors, meticulous editors, and visually talented cover designers are the reason we are able to publish stories that will stay with you forever.

It takes a village to raise a child and it takes an entire team of driven people to bring the unforgettable stories of our authors to life. These are the talents that make 48fourteen possible.
