ABOUT GLADEYE PRESS

GLADEYE PRESS is an independent book publisher. We are a husband and wife team with more than 50 years combined professional experience as editors and writers. We’re also deeply rooted in the region, both of us are native Oregonians and have lived, worked, and played along the coast, in the cities, smaller towns, and many of the places populated by little more than moss, ferns, and trees, or jackrabbits, juniper, and cattle. We love the Northwest. We understand that there are a great many special stories and so much we can all share about this place and we look forward to being a part of the storytelling. 

GLADEYE PREPUBLICATION SERVICES (GPS)  is our evaluation business designed for authors in the early stages of producing their books. With more than 100 years of combined professional book industry experience, we can give you the directions you need to navigate the publishing jungle!
