For too long the diet of knowledge and written entertainment has been controlled and rationed by publishers. They decided what was worthy and what they thought would sell. That was what was served up to the public .


Reverse-action publishing starts the publishing process with consumers, to arrive at a book for their market, instead of starting with a writer, whose book is then taken to a market and consumers.


As such reverse-action publishing is a vehicle for mutual aid and social justice. By working with communities for a creative result that speaks to their market/community, instead of packaging a result from outside of their community, reverse-action publishing is a powerful tool for learning, community and entrepreneurial development.


We look for what is missing and then, together with the people who know best, create a work that fills that gap and supplies a community. A community can be based on

    • a location, like schools in a certain town

    • an interest group, like vegans across the world

    • a mutual aid group, like people moving from custodial care to home and employment

    • an economic group, like customers of a restaurant, visitors to a museum, or players of a game

    • an idea, like growing our food more locally

We support sales of our books and music with direct action such as meals, demos, programs of training, new businesses and we do it in libraries, schools, prisons, shops, camps and events.

SQUAW to honour the indigenous blood of our First Nations grandmothers and granddaughters: Cheyenne, Cherokee & Quechua. 

PIES , on the one hand, to grandly propose the Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Spiritual nature of humankind, and PIES, on the other hand, to simply celebrate the bare pleasures of cooking, perhaps the last great oral tradition of the West!
