About Us

Independent publishers of unique voices

We are a small (tiny) bootstrapped, woman-owned publisher. We love beautiful stories well told. Our Publications page lists some books we’ve released. Some other books were put out under different imprints.

As the book-publishing world shifts and evolves all around us, we look for ways to connect readers with good stories, especially those written by authors from historically marginalized communities and experiences.

We are small publishers who love big ideas

We give each book our full attention and care, and we release books and stories one at a time, as our day-job schedules permit. We truly appreciate the readers who’ve championed our authors’ works with positive reviews or recommendations to friends. Thank you. We hope to continue to earn your loyalty and interest.

Toot Sweet Ink is a publishing imprint of Rare Pattern LLC.


Note: Toot Sweet Ink follows a traditional independent publishing model. We do not charge authors up-front fees to publish with us. Such practices go against our values.
