Mountain Water Press Novel Selected for Kirkus Review's 100 Best Indie Books

The owners of Mountain Water Ranch also have a small, interdependent press publishing works of fine writing & fine art that celebrate the enspirited land — in books and magazines. We call it an interdependent press because we are fashioning a new collaborative model of publishing with artists, authors, and printers and exploring what that means.

Our latest publication – and our first novel – is the inimitable Quarry by Meredith Ann Fuller, illustrated by Joan Anderson. We are pleased to announce that Quarry was selected as one of The Kirkus Review's 100 Best Indie Books of 2017; and 1 of only 8 fiction works selected!


If you are in Boulder on February 28, 2018, Meredith and Joan will be at Boulder Bookstore for a reading and book signing. You can buy your copy of Quarry at Boulder Bookstore during the event, or purchase online directly through Mountain Water Press

Below are a few of Joan's illustrations that appear throughout the novel.
