About Fox and Raven Publishing
Fox & Raven Publishing was born out of the distinct and irrevocable desire to publish powerful books. By powerful, we mean the kind of books that make the reader want to rip their hair out, sob into pages of glorious prose, scream with excitement as they pore over a new chapter on a train. The kind of books that change people’s lives.
Arguably, it all began with that infamous book, The Hobbit. When Marius du Plessis, founder of Fox & Raven, read it at age 9, everything changed. Books became portals to new worlds; limitless worlds. Worlds where anything was possible.
And* now, Fox & Raven is one more such portal. So make yourself a cup of Earl Grey, open up that book, and enjoy the ride.
* Yes, we start our sentences with conjunctions. Eat it.
