Why Okanagan Publishing House?

Anyone who has been to the Okanagan knows that it is a region of unsurpassed beauty. This can be seen from the ever changing colours of Kalamalka Lake, in Vernon, to the imposing stone ridges that rise from the ground at Penticton’s Shaka Bluffs. And of course, there is no place this is more evident than in the great Okanagan Lake that spans the region and ties it together.

The splendour of these natural wonders has not been lost on the people who live here. They have provoked many an artist to create works of art. As a result, we boast many renowned art galleries, such as the Hambleton Galleries in Kelowna, or the Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre in Osoyoos. In addition, music plays a key role in our cultural scene, with festivals like Rock the Lake in Kelowna and Pentastic Jazz Festival in Penticton attracting national attention. Arts have a large support base in the Okanagan, however one area we feel doesn’t have the same support is in literature, the printing and publishing of local authors. That’s were we come in.

Who We Are…

Okanagan Publishing House is a small, independent publishing company. We were founded in Vernon BC, and are now based in Kelowna BC. We started with the desire to showcase the Okanagan’s splendour. Our focus is on local authors, and we work hard to bring to life the stories and art that our beautiful region inspires them to create. We appreciate the fact that we are a smaller company, as it enables us to work one on one with our authors, ensuring the end product of our collaboration is one of the highest quality.

As a trade publishing company, we develop inhouse publications through our connections with professional writers and artists in the area. While most of our work involves traditional print publishing, we also offer online digital publishing.

In addition, we also extend our production knowledge to the public in the form of self publishing services through our Okanagan Publishing Company arm, a distinct entity that only deals in self-published works. Whether providing formatting assistance or offering the book under this imprint, get the help you need to self-publish your own book. We help to aspiring authors as they move through the whole publishing process, from design and formatting to print and promotion. From start to finish, Okanagan Publishing Company is here to help your creation be the greatest success it can be!
