We’re a small independent publisher based in Kaarina, Southwest Finland

A Small Publisher with Big Dreams!

We’re starting this journey with a single series

In August of 2020 we began publishing the “Unchipped” Series by Taya DeVere, a dystopian light science fiction serial set to release every 18 days for an entire year. We’re really going all out to make the Unchipped series the best reader experience possible and we think you should go check it out as soon as you can.

But for now, why don’t we introduce you to the amazing team that makes everything we do possible.

Teija DeVere

Marketing Specialist / Author

Teija’s been involved in marketing in Finland and the USA for over a decade, writing SEO copy, articles, even a few novels, she’s done it all. She took over the digital and social media marketing for a major Finnish corporation in 2016, and over the past few years she’s become a bit of a social media marketing guru, developing a singular grasp on the analytics tools offered by the major social media platforms.
