Thistlemilk Press selectively publishes 0-3 books a year. With that in mind, you can email us your finished manuscript with your patience and understanding if we don't get back to you right away.


We are not-for-profit, which means the only goal we have is to break even and continue affording materials to make new books. When you buy a chapbook from us, a portion of your money covers labor/book making costs and the rest goes to the author. 


Orders are shipped every other Monday after payment is received, with the exception of preorders which will be shipped on release day. All books are shipped in standard padded mailers and sent by USPS Priority First Class mail.

All purchases are final, we cannot offer refunds, but please email us if you have any questions or issues with your order. We'll do our best to make it right.

print runs & editions 
Chapbooks are usually printed in editions of 25 copies. 

If you are interested in buying in bulk, this can be arranged ahead of time by email.
