Welcome to

Manzanita Writers Press


a publisher and member of the Literary League of the nonprofit arts organization, the Calaveras County Arts Council


We are a growing, not-for-profit literary publisher in the Mother Lode region of California. Our location in the scenic, rural Sierra Nevada foothills of Calaveras County is inspirational to the many writers who reside here and in the surrounding rural counties.


Our writing community has blossomed into a mini-Renaissance of publishing in our area. Come check us out. We have published six literary books since 2010 and represent a flourishing community of writers in our region.




One of our latest publishing projects, at Amazon.com and Small Press Distribution, is Franklin Ted Laskin’s book, Chance, A Jockey’s Odyssey, a witty look into the California horse racing world, with the author following the career of a California jockey from 1999 to 2006.

Get Swifty’s advice on betting on horses. Explore the world of thoroughbreds and mules and the people who love them. Take a journey through various racing venues and county fairs through the author’s perspective.
