Parson's Porch & Company

Turning Words into Books & Books into Bread since 2004

Parson's Porch & Book Publishing is a book publishing company with a double focus.  We focus on the needs of creative writers who need a professional publisher to turn their words into books, & we also focus on the needs of others by turning their books into bread by sharing our profits with those who are homeless and displaced by meeting their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety.

When we hear “Listen to this,” most of us are all ears. It is a good way to capture the attention of folks to whom we want to tell a story. That phrase holds the promise of hearing something interesting, or informative, or funny. As for the words “mostly true” as a part of the book’s title, I suspect that is the case with every story that is told. On the question of truth, the words of Susan Estrich ring true: “. . truth is a construct, infected with the biases of the teller. ”  A story, true or not, comes from a particular point of view from a teller who may concentrate on parts of the story that another teller might leave out. As Bryce Stevens has said, “In the telling, we discover ourselves. And in the listening, we learn that none of us is alone.” We hope that will be the case for the people who read this book and hear our stories.
