Light Messages is a family run publishing company founded in Durham in 1998, and we began expanding to general trade in 2011. We now have close to 100 titles in our catalog and release 8-10 titles per year. We pride ourselves on publishing meaningful books by emerging authors. Our imprint Torchflame Books offers a fair, innovative partner publishing model, offering entrepreneurial indie authors an alternative to vanity presses.
We are proud to bring the Read Local Book Festival to Durham and to partner with the Durham Public Library in supporting Durham Library Foundation, a vital part of our literary ecosystem.
