Founded in 2016, Paper Lion Press seeks to publish exciting, engaging, and enthralling works by new and established writers. 


Our Story

Combining the skillful eye of an experienced editor and the insight of an experienced designer, Paper Lion Press isn't interested in the status quo. We look for what delights us, what transports us to another place and time, what pushes our edges and makes us question our assumptions. We are hungry for words and stories that aren't otherwise being told. 

We are interested in publishing memoir from unique life experiences, literotica and erotic memoirs, stories of powerful and empowering BDSM and kink relationships, unexpected encounters and queer romance, personal revelations of all sorts, and more. Our press is committed to diversity in publishing, in honoring the authentic stories and storytelling experiences of all cultures, and in dismantling the colonization of traditional publishing.
