We are delighted that you dropped in!
Much like, every time a bell rings, an angel gets her wings, we believe that the gift of an indie gem has, not a single, but a three-fold effect.
“Every time an indie book is bought,
a reader gets a thrilling escape,
an author gets her literary miracle,
and a small business is blessed.”
WaterBearer Press supports emerging and established indie authors, with the understanding that our works fulfill a collective need to escape reality, while launching alternate perspectives into the universe. To that end, we offer an alternative and personalized outlet for authors to connect with their readers by presenting them with individually signed copies of their work.
To learn more about our growing Featured Lit and Indie Spotlight, please take a look at our Digital Consignment Agreement. If the program interests you, please fill out the form and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org for evaluation.
What Inspires Us
If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.
Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)
I have always a sacred veneration
for any one I observe to be a little
out of repair in his person, as supposing him either a poet or a philosopher; because the richest minerals are ever found under the most ragged and withered surface of the earth.
Ignore all proffered rules and create your own, suitable for what you want to say.
Acknowledging that our attitude is the only thing we can control should be our starting point each day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
What lies behind you
and what lies in front of you,
pales in comparison to what lies
inside of you.
How to be badass:
Be too positive to be doubtful,
too optimistic to be fearful,
too determined to be defeated.
If you don’t have time to read,
you don’t have the time
(or the tools) to write.
Simple as that.
The ear is the only true writer
and the only true reader.
Better to write for yourself
and have no public, than to write
for the public and have no self.
Our Founder and Managing Editor
Philosophical fiction writer and supernatural escape artist, Patricia Bossano, is the author of several award-winning supernatural escapes. She lives and writes in California, with her family.
Over the years, her skills in International Sales Operations, teaching, and interpreting and translating, secured her well-deserved praise and recognition. She also created and successfully implemented a K-8 Spanish program.
Alas, neither teaching nor the corporate world were in the cards for her, they took a back seat in 2016 when the opportunity to write full-time fell on her lap. Along with it arose the desire to diverge from the mainstream toward a publishing niche where indies can thrive—WaterBearer Press is her independent experiment, where author and imprint share resources and bet on one another—her supernatural approach to publishing, one dream at a time.
Patricia’s literary works include: The Faerie Legacy Series: Faery Sight (2009), Cradle Gift (2013), and Nahia (2017). Seven Ghostly Spins: a brush with the supernatural (2018). Love & Homegrown Magic (2020), Entre Duendes Y Ratones (2021), and Herencia Encantada (2022).
