Created by two industry professionals with more than sixty years of publishing experience between them, The Story Plant is dedicated to developing commercial novelists into bestselling authors. We launched in 2008 with one hardcover and one trade paperback. In 2012, we will publish seventeen titles in paperback and digital formats, with a plan to expand in 2013.
