What is Prairieland Press?
Prairieland Press is a small midwest publishing company located in Fremont, Nebraska. We focus on publishing quality books for readers of all ages as well as educational materials for teachers.
Who is the owner of Prairieland Press?
The owner of Prairieland Press is Nancy Wagner, who writes for children under the pen name of N. L. Sharp.
What is the story behind Prairieland Press?
In 2004, Wagner was publishing with a small Nebraska publisher out of Crete, Nebraska. When that publishing company declared bankruptcy, Wagner was faced with a decision. She could either watch her book The Ring Bear disappear or she could establish her own company to market and sell through the inventory on that title. She chose the second option and Prairieland Press was born.
Originally, Prairieland Press was committed solely to N. L. Sharp and her books. But in 2015, Wagner opened the doors of her publishing house to a limited number of other authors and became a full-fledged publishing house.
What exactly is the publishing model at Prairieland Press?
Wagner uses a publishing model known as hybrid publishing. In short, Wagner and her authors partner together to publish, market, and sell the books that Prairieland Press produces. You may read more about this publishing model here, at Writers Digest.
What types of books do you publish at Prairieland Press?
Prairieland Press proudly publishes books that we believe are suitable for the entire family. Most of our books are written for children, but we do have one title aimed at adults: Forever Heroes. Because Wagner was a teacher for more than twenty years, Prairieland Press is currently in the process of creating supplementary materials for the books to help teachers make the best use of them in the classroom.
Where may I purchase your books?
Most of our books may be ordered from Amazon, plus they may be found at many of the area book stores, including the Bookworm in Omaha and the Chapters Books and Gifts in Seward. Ingram is our wholesale distributor.
But if you would like autographed copies of the books OR multiple copies of one or more titles, you may purchase our books directly from us by downloading a Prairieland Press Order Form. When you send in your order, be sure to indicate how you would like to have your books autographed.
