Our podcast, The Wayfarer’s Guide to Worldbuilding is a tool to help writers, DMs, and creatives build better worlds. Each episode explores one facet of worldbuilding and gives practical advice on how to make these elements realistic.

About Us

How We're Different

We act like a traditional publisher, committed to the editing, design, and marketing for our books, but with the advantages of a small press. We are able to give our writers loving attention and encourage aspiring authors to learn and grow through our communities.

Our fantastic editor in chief, Allison, has just released her first book and is hoping to submit it for an award in non-fiction. In order to be eligible, Super Sick needs to sell 350 print copies by June 1.

Thank you all so much!
