Wild Blue Wonder Press was established in January 2016 by Kellyn Roth for the purpose of independently publishing her historical women’s fiction series, The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy.
Based on a special location on her family’s property and a childhood stumbling over phrases, Kellyn chose the name to evoke feelings of wonder in a world full of dark valleys. After all, where there is snow and ice, there will be chickadees, and in the midst of the darkest woods, you can often find a cozy cabin.
As of January 2023, Wild Blue Wonder Press is beginning working with other creatives to expand its outreach and help other independent writers achieve their dreams in a professional manner.
Wild Blue Wonder Press’s mission is to share fictional stories full of grace and truth. Our goal is to create stories that matter, to delve into the deepest and sometimes the saddest parts of life, and to return from the darkest valleys resplendent in the light of hope and the fullness of joy.
At present, we are specifically focusing on women’s fiction aimed at a “new adult” Christian audience. Our ideal reader is a young woman navigating life as an adult and asking big questions along the way. We tackle topics such as mental health, sexual sins, past trauma, and more in godly light while also showing the positive hope that comes from healing through Jesus Christ.
We are a team of Christian creators determined to create God-honoring fiction that matters. Wild Blue Wonder Press’s mission is different from that of other publishers in that we are more interested in partnering with indie authors than we are in the stories themselves (though of course that is a big part of it).
We aim to support writers of quality fiction, but our focus is different. It starts with the author—not the story. In our opinion, an author’s story starts with their character and platform. We want to encourage indie authors to develop their personal story in a healthy, restful, and determined way that focuses on building a strong relationship with God and a godly life that includes the career of writing.
Wild Blue Wonder Press is assembling an amazing team to further our vision and launch our press into the world! Would you like to help?
