Sundown Press (SP) publishes traditional western fiction, fiction, and non-fiction, from familiar authors as well as new talent. Genres include reference books, biographies, and fiction based on real-life characters.

After founding the historical western/western romance publishing company Prairie Rose Publications, Cheryl and Livia recognized a need for an imprint specializing in fiction and non-fiction written by both women and men for readers across the spectrum. Sundown Press was born.
