At Pierce Press, we guide our authors through the publishing journey. We are committed to their success every step of the way.

An independent publisher since 1989

Pierce Press collaborates with our authors to publish books for children and adults in topics relating to sustainability, peer learning, creativity, diversity, and stewardship of the Earth.

We specialize in captivating destinations with the DayTripper Books imprint; alternative & collaborative education with the Peeragogy Books imprint; and children’s books with the Gigglequick Books imprint.

Pierce Press also provides turnkey podcast production services, niche marketing materials, website management, and video production for nonprofits, small businesses, & individuals.

Join Daniel on his newest adventure!

Oceans Alive!

“Oceans Alive” features our hero, Daniel, and his school-age friends during a teachable moment about plastics and other pollutants in oceans and waterways. It empowers the children to organize their local community to work together on a crusade to clean up the environment of which they are a part. This is not only a story, it is a working model that can be implemented in every community and make a real difference in humans, hearts, and habitats.

Sheryl’s first book was endorsed by the Jane Goodall Institute of Nepal and won two Purple Dragonfly awards, so you can bet the new one will be just as good!
