TouchWood Editions has been publishing books for twenty years, and our mandate has grown along with us. We publish books of literary merit, as well as about the people, places, landscape, food, art, and culture of the Pacific Northwest. Our commitment to our region and to our authors is matched by our commitment to quality production and effective promotion of our books. We have sales teams and distribution channels in both the US and Canada.
