Welcome to Cairn Press...GardnerStack2Sample.jpg

Since we only publish one title per year, you know any Cairn Press book you pick up will be awesome. Profound-like. Life changing. Intense. Beautiful. You know. Literature.

Our 2014 submission period is now closed. But...

We're very excited to announce the forthcoming May 2014 release of Jay Shearer's debut novel, Five Hundred Sirens. This novel blisters off the page with the narration of Phil Palliard, a stay-at-home-dad who pushes the limits of friendship, his marriage, and his sanity, all while still being quite charming. 

If you're in Chicago on April 25, don't miss the release of Jay's first novel (of many to come).















Matt Pine, our 2013 author, continues to wow anyone who is lucky enough to read his first novel, City Water Light & Power. If you like beautiful prose, to swoon from paragraph to paragraph and hope it never ends, this is your novel. Check out his page and read the recent kick-ass interview with San Francisco Weekly.

Seamus Scanlon's first short story collection, As Close As You’ll Ever Be, is still blowing people’s minds with its utterly original style that is best described as literary noir. And now, it is being translated into Spanish. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to be an Irish killer who is pleasant, wry and slightly OCD, then you’ll want to pick up a copy. Check out his page and read a piece of flash fiction… we know you’ll want more.

Aaron Stewart is our official cover photographer, and his work graces the covers for both Matt Pine and Seamus Scanlon. Please check out his webpage for some jaw-dropping images by this photographer for hire.

To all the great folks we met at the AWP in Seattle, thank you so much for the support... Let's continue to help each other, promote each other, in our writing and publishing endeavors. We're all in this together.

Carry on!
The Editors
