About Verthandi

       why we are here       

Verthandi Press, founded in 2016, is an independent publishing company named for the Norse Norn of the present, Verthandi, and created to provide a platform on which female authors in the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Faerie Tales can allow their fullest creative expression to be heard. 

We publish books whose aim is to both inspire the imagination, and be true to the long tradition of storytelling in its highest, most authentic form. 

After years of frustration with the conventional publishing world, experiencing, as many authors have, the diluting of her voice, L. Stephanie Tait decided to start Verthandi Press to be the change she wanted to see in the world; a company whose focus is not about the bottom line, but is instead about sharing incredible stories and perspectives through the beloved form of literature.
