Painted Pony Books

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????What kind of stories will you find at Painted Pony Books? The kind young people want to read.

Painted Pony Books offers an outstanding variety of historic novels, short stories, and novellas for Middle Grade (ages 9-12), Young Adult (13-17), and New Adult (18-24) readers.

Reading is becoming a lost art in society. It takes a lot to “rope in” a reader of any age and hold their interest, but a well-written, interesting story will do just that.

PPB opened in September 2013, founded by Cheryl Pierson and Livia J. Washburn. Though the company is new, the owners’ experience in the writing, editing and publishing fields is unmatched.

An imprint of Prairie Rose Publications, the publishing company created for women authors of historicals, westerns, and western romance, PPB accepts submissions from men and women alike in the western and historical genres for younger readers. If you write a good story, we want to see it.

Submission requirements are here.

The goal at Painted Pony Books is to provide the best in western and historical  short stories, novellas, and novels to keep younger readers reading. If you feel you have a manuscript that fits the submissions guidelines, please email it, along with a query and synopsis, to Editor in Chief Cheryl Pierson at

Come join the authors and staff at Painted Pony Books in this exciting adventure!
