What is EcoLit Books?

EcoLit Books is an independent online journal, founded in 2012, devoted to books—fiction and nonfiction—with environmental and animal protection themes.

Why EcoLit Books?

We (Midge and John) started it because we couldn’t find an EcoLit category on Amazon—or anywhere for that matter. We’d like to see this category get more mainstream attention, so we figured a dedicated blog couldn’t hurt.

What is EcoFiction?

Eco-Fiction is a super-genre of writing that straddles all genres (mysteries, thrillers, literary, children’s). We often refer to it as “fiction with a conscience.”

Who is EcoLit Books?

We are publishers of animal and environmental literature through Ashland Creek Press.

We believe there is an opportunity to bring like-minded readers, writers, and publishers together to create a community around this emerging—and increasingly vital—field of literature. While Ashland Creek Press pays for this website, we actively seek out books from all publishers. We do accept review copies though we are just as likely to review books we’ve purchased.

Can I participate?

We’re always looking for people who want to review books and people who want to contribute articles. Learn more.

We hope you’ll participate and also provide us with feedback so we can improve.
