Novel Reads

Thank you for visiting the Black  House. We are a small press specializing in unique fiction from Appalachian authors. Black House is not your typical Appalachian publisher. While we do publish some standard “Appalachian” material, we are also open to a variety of unique genres and subgenres. We strive to provide readers with the best material possible, and to provide our authors with the best experience possible.
