Tornado Alley Publications

TAPBlogBackgroundGreen_2Tornado Alley Publications (TAP) imprint of Prairie Rose Publications is devoted to some “awesomely wonderful” reading for younger readers. TAP, founded by Cheryl Pierson and Livia J. Washburn, offers an outstanding variety of novels, short stories, and novellas in the historical time period from pre-WWI through the 1980s (or so), as well as contemporary, mystery, futuristic, paranormal, and fantasy genres for Middle Grade (ages 9-12), Young Adult (13-17), and New Adult (18-24) readers.

Reading is becoming a lost art in today's society. It takes a lot to grab the attention of a young reader and hold his or her interest. Choosing a well-written, interesting story is a good start.

Submissions for TAP are open. For guidelines on submitting and other publishing information, please visit the submissions page: SUBMISSIONS

If you write a good story, we want to see it!
