*We’re Out There

Nosetouch Press is an independent book publisher tandemly based in Chicago and Pittsburgh, dedicated to publishing some of the most energizing fiction in American and international literature today. 





Jamie, a middle-aged female trucker, is on the mend after losing custody of her seven-year-old daughter. On top of that, she also suffers from REM Behavior Sleep Disorder which induces lingering nightmares and outbursts of violence. To distract herself from her sorrows, she decides to re-enter the workforce. Unfortunately, she’ll have to make her deadline while space and time unravel.

With a twinge of self-deprecating humor, REALITY SQUALL is a story brimming with psychedelic imagery, otherworldly monsters, and metaphysical ideas. Its ominous atmosphere will leave readers coiled by the looming dread but transfixed by Jamie’s very human struggle.

The Wolfshadow Trilogy


This is a great werewolf novel. And when I say that, I mean it’s a werewolf story in the purest form: It’s bloody, it’s monstrous, it’s depraved—and it’s fun. It’s as much a monster memoir as it is a satire on the absurdity of humanity…The writing style was clever, original, and laugh-out-loud funny in some places.…I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys werewolves in all their monstrous glory…It has quickly become one of my favorite books. It deserves an edgy, artsy show with a cool soundtrack and all the awards. It’s honestly wild that I just now heard about it.

Darkness Calls


Brave New Worlds


Varied Visions


Wild & Distant Shores

This collection of related fantasy short stories has a lot going for it. From the unique application of classic monsters (a manticore leading an army of beastmen to conquer the world, or a dragon that uses its blood to make a hive-mind of its followers) to the quick beat of its action scenes and the classic feel of the story overall, there was a lot to like. Daring knights, cunning wizards, and treacherous mercenaries, each helped to give this world a fleshed-out feel that made me all the more eager to learn more about it.
