Abous Us

We are an Alabama-based independent book publishing company founded in 2000. Our world headquarters are in historic downtown Montgomery, in a 1960s-era building formerly known as the Montgomery Shoe Factory, a shoe-repair business. We changed the sign on the front to Montgomery Book Factory, kept the iconic boot on top of the two-story building*, and installed a bookstore on the first floor where there was retail space. The bookstore — Read Herring — sells new and used books and specializes in the same categories that we publish.

Our hard-working small staff of eight does everything involved in book publishing except printing. We lovingly acquire, edit, design, produce, warehouse, publicize, promote, and sell all the books we publish, which we hope to keep in print forever. We are distributed nationally by Ingram Publisher Services.
