Our Company

Our Mission

The Three Little Sisters LLC is focused on the mission of making books that showcase voices that would be otherwise ignored by mainstream publishers. Our mission is to make quality publications for readers of all ages. We apply our background in law, publishing, editing and more to give a holistic approach to publishing. We are a family-owned by three sisters and a silent partner that provide all the day to day work and financial support. 

We are an independent inclusive mission-driven press. What does that mean? It means that we treat each book as important, and each author as a partner in our little house. We focus on the detailed aspects of publishing such as the style, format, and font, creating eye-catching titles for readers of all ages. We work on a cycle of release, in which new titles are time-released along with existing back titles in a cycle that provides everyone with seamless production.

What We Do

We take manuscripts from their humble beginnings and launch them into a fully formed book. We are not a vanity press, there are no fees to submitting your book, nor are any fees charged for our services. We run our company just like the big publishing houses do, however, we focus on providing each author with the care and attention that they deserve. We pride ourselves on having an open and transparent method in all of our dealings. 

Our Goals

To provide quality books that inspire, create, and educate. We support and promote titles that showcase voices from minority communities and lgbtq+. 

We publish both new and seasoned authors. Our goal is to give our authors a company that they can be proud of, one that focuses on providing readers with something unique, meaningful, and profound. Storytelling is a cornerstone of TLS, inside every book is a piece of an author’s soul expressed upon a written page. We combine both digital and hand made illustrations in our kids’ line to give books that little bit extra.

Our Standards

We provide the full range of services that you would expect at any publishing house, provided by a close-knit team that is dedicated to your success. Our difference is that our team works with our authors to ensure their project meets their desires and dreams with our standards and requirements. We don’t require authors to have an agent or to have a large stack of manuscripts to submit, you can be either new to the market or a seasoned author who wants to experience the gold standard of care by a publisher with heart.

Beyond Publishing

The Three Little Sisters is more than a publisher. We provide services from document creation to developmental editing. Our services include helping authors get out of predatory contracts, developing single use marketing materials, templates, branding assistance and more. Looking forward in publishing, we include some new technologies like QR codes for easy reader interaction, advanced editing, writers workshops and artist products to enhance publications. Our podcast division dives into the topics of writing, art, culture and examines the truth behind many of our novels. Come joing a publisher that things into the future, and become one of the many authors that we have helped launch into successful published authors.
