Rootstock Publishing is an innovative, hybrid partnership publishing company that collaborates with authors, whom we think of as the rootstock—the primary source. We are not unique, modeling ourselves after other relatively new, non-traditional hybrid publishing-partnership houses that have met with success for many new writers.

We seek writers who want more control over their work, who seek higher earnings per book sold, and who are willing to invest toward that end. But just as important, we seek authors who have solid marketing ideas about their book, who understand their audience(s), and who are willing to self-promote and work hard to publicize and market their book.

“In the middle of the night I wake up and don’t know where I am . . . . Am I in my house? My neighbor’s house? Do I turn on the light? Do I get dressed? I turn to Jane, hold her hand, and let her bring me back to reality.”

What do you do when your reality slips away? If you’re Sky Yardley and Jane Dwinell, you accept each new challenge, reshape your life, and write.

When Sky was diagnosed with “probable early stage Alzheimer’s” at age 66, he was determined to live as fully with his new reality as possible. He researched dementia, talked about dementia, connected with other people with the disease, and, finally, he wrote about it. With humor and honesty, love and compassion, Sky and his wife Jane describe what it’s like to live with a constantly evolving and mysterious new life. “The brain is a mysterious thing,” writes Jane, as Sky muses about traveling unmapped roads with no GPS.

Welcome to Alzheimer’s Canyon: there is one way in, and no way out. Follow Sky and Jane as they navigate this journey they did not ask to take, a journey that balances pain, loss, and confusion with gratitude, wonder, and transformation.

After nearly ten years of failed fertility trials, Rebecca and Sallyann's life irrevocably changes in just ten days, and not the way they expected. Focused for so long on bringing a baby into the world together, this lesbian couple was finally able to hold the newborn they were to adopt in their arms—but it doesn't last. They take the baby home from the hospital and welcome him into their family, when outside forces intervene and the birth mother reclaims the baby, sending the couple into a tailspin.

The loss of a baby is quite possibly the worst scenario imaginable. Rebecca and Sallyann want the reader to know, you can survive it and, as a couple, grow stronger together. From their distinct voices, this dual memoir explores how feelings of self-doubt, longing, and heartache sneak into the layers of life, informing the decisions you make and the place where you belong.

In the early years after the Vietnam War, a budding friendship between a bullied farm boy from Vermont’s rural Northeast Kingdom and a wounded Navy pilot from the streets of New York City blooms into a transformation of triumph and resilience.

Sixteen-year-old Skeets Stearns finds refuge in the rugged mountain behind his family farm, where he knows every nook and cranny. Roaming the mountain has made his body strong, like the legendary catamount that once roamed Vermont’s forests; but his physical strength has yet to give him the courage to date pretty, popular Becky Winslow, star of the high school girls’ track team.

Before enlisting in the Navy, Bill MacColl had been a contender to make the US Olympic Team as a decathlete. That dream ended when he was shot down during a combat mission in the Vietnam jungle. Trying to put his life back together, MacColl moves in with the Stearns family—counting on the fresh air of the farm and the healing power of the mountain to guide his way forward.

MacColl ends up training Skeets to compete in the Eastern States High School Track and Field Championship. Will Skeets win the championship, and the heart of Becky Winslow? Will Bill learn to accept his disability? No Excuses is the story of opposites struggling together to better their lives.

Sadira Doyle believes the best years of her life are behind her. A housewife and mother in a parochial town during the latter years of the depression, she yearns for more. Her husband is an alcoholic sinking into despair; her eldest son’s eccentricities make him the object of bullying; and her mother-in-law’s religious zeal runs counter to Sadira’s own spiritual sensibilities. The weekly radio show, Hawai'i Calls, offers her a chance to escape. When her husband Archie loses his job as a mortician, Sadira decides they will begin anew in Hawai'i. 

Archie and Sadira set forth from New York City with their two young sons, bound for a place where they know no one. While the fresh start in Honolulu doesn’t transform Archie, and the move exacerbates their son Lionel’s emotional struggles, Sadira discovers new possibilities with a job as the society columnist for a Honolulu daily, finding herself in the company of movie stars, politicians, and Honolulu’s most powerful players. 

This intoxicating, glamorous world soon proves challenging and flawed. The Japanese attack on Oahu changes the landscape once again, altering daily life for the islands and for Sadira. With the islands’ serenity shattered, its glory days as playground to the stars are over, and Sadira must recreate herself once more to survive with her family intact.

"The steward of Willingford Hall was murdered in the dell on 12 March 1919. I found his body because I’d been thrown by a horse. It’s difficult to say which event was more unlikely."

Willingford Hall stable lad Harry Green is about to make a discovery even more unlikely than a corpse. 

With the estate near bankruptcy and the rise of automobiles fast replacing horse travel, Harry, a young woman passing as a lad, will soon be out of a job. Facing the knowledge she has no skills in the service positions open to women, Harry resolves to discover who murdered the steward, thus becoming a woman who can determine her own future. But as her investigation proceeds, a second murder demonstrates just how dangerous her knowledge is. Soon, no matter where she rides, she finds that somebody is following her.

Part coming-of-age and part cozy mystery, All Men Glad and Wise confronts a time of tremendous social change: the inequities of service jobs, the quandaries of grooms as technology advances, and the patriarchal assumptions that exclude women from both valued work and riding astride. Harry, like horsemanship–and like England–is on the cusp of a world looking forward.

“You sing your songs and maybe you go for a walk or a beer, but at some point your brain must remind you that your audience is back there dying.” 

From the author of The Marriage Hearse, a New York Times New & Noteworthy selection, and The Handsome Sailor, a New York Times Notable Book, comes a new novel that explores the little-known world of hospice singing—home visit concerts for the dying—through the surprising relationship between one of the singers, 66-year-old Ian Nelson, and a beautiful young woman, Anita Richardson, to whom his choir sings. 

Ian, retired from a career as a high school guidance counselor, long married, and the father of two, considers himself an ordinary man. He is intelligent, engaging, more attractive than he seems to know, and, as the son of a minister, determinedly moral. Meeting Anita threatens it all. His attraction and connection to this much younger woman—who, to complicate matters, is dying—upends his quiet New England life. 

In richly detailed, finely honed prose threaded through with Larry Duberstein’s characteristic humor and compassion, The Hospice Singer explores the hidden complexities of life in small town America.

The year is 1968 and idealistic anti-war activists David and Jill, hoping to refocus their efforts to build a new society, have moved to an abandoned hill farm in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom to start a commune. Joined by a rotating cast of committed activists and fair-weather freeloaders alike, David and Jill are confronted by the harsh environment of northern Vermont, where they discover the complexities of country life, make connections with their new neighbors (good and bad), and struggle to find their place until the fissures blowing apart the larger anti-war movement reach their collective at Zion Farm. Sugaring Down burrows below the surface of the sixties counterculture and the New Left to explore the contradictions and passions that lead to the implosion of the protagonists’ dreams and their turns down two very different paths. Sugaring Down is an evocative and reflective story that examines the dynamics of social change, the violent flux of opposing political systems, and the history and nature of Vermont.

How can responsible and local journalism survive? How do we shift to a clean energy economy? How can we save major lakes from dangerous nutrient pollution? Supported by an activist family foundation and often working closely with it, Vermont nonprofits have played vital roles in making positive progress on these and other complex challenges. The stories in Catalysts for Change tell what these partnerships have achieved, and how. Highly readable, informative, and inspiring, Catalysts for Change begins with Claire Malcolm’s jarring experience as a newly trained nurse witnessing unsafe childbirth practices among the poor in China, where she lived and worked for nearly half a century. Widowed and living in Vermont later in life, Claire created the Lintilhac Foundation to help bring nurse-midwifery back into the American healthcare system, in Vermont's largest hospital. Over the decades since Claire’s passing in 1984, the foundation, run by her daughter-in-law and son, has expanded its focus to support and work closely with nonprofits in maternal and child health, responsible journalism, water quality, land conservation, and clean energy. The story of the Lintilhac Foundation is a rewarding one—both for everyone who cares about Vermont and for philanthropies across the country that are seeking new models for how they can play a more engaged role in their communities.

Inspiring and timely, Betwixt & Between: Pauli Murray’s Revolutionary Life is the riveting story of an African American woman, born in 1910, who blazed through the barriers of race and gender decades before the Civil Rights and Women’s Movements. Pauli Murray fearlessly rode freight trains dressed as a boy during the Great Depression and befriended First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt before embarking on a pioneering life of social activism, legal scholarship, and many firsts. In 1944, Pauli graduated first in her class at Howard University; in 1965, she was the first Black woman to earn a doctorate in law from Yale University; in 1966, she was a founder of NOW, the first National Organization for Women; and in 1977, Pauli was the first Black woman to be ordained as an Episcopal priest. Pauli never faced a barrier she couldn’t smash through, and her life as a feminist, civil rights lawyer, poet, author, activist, and priest paved the way for all to live a life of equality and purpose. A Young Adult Biography.

“Michael Freed-Thall’s Horodno Burning is a beautifully textured, epic historical novel with an ending that will simultaneously break your heart and inspire you to live life to the fullest. With courageous, noble, and big-hearted characters at its center, the book takes readers on a journey through turbulent and dramatic times and into a rich and stirring account of Jewish history. Readers of historical fiction who look for strong female characters at the spine will be enraptured by this exquisite debut.” —Stephanie Storey, bestselling author of Oil and Marble and Raphael, Painter in Rome In the Russian Empire’s Pale of Settlement, Esther Leving, a brilliant young bibliophile, chafes at male dominance, religious dogma, and antisemitism. Bernard Garfinkle, a religious Jew and the son of a vodka distiller, hides a shameful secret—in a culture that worships books, he can’t read. Despite their differences, they fall in love. Esther teaches Bernard to read and he in turn builds her a bookshop. They start a family, but when ferocious pogroms target Russian Jews, they must confront violent oppression. Exploring the turbulent history that led to the migration of one-and-a-half million Jews from czarist Russia to America, Horodno Burning is a love letter to literature, freedom, and Jewish survival.

A collection of stories documenting racism and survival by 15 accomplished Black fundraisers working in charities across North America. With searing and intimate detail, they write about their experiences with anti-Black racism: from coping with being last hired, first fired, and overlooked for promotion to outright hostility in toxic workplaces. Their testimonies chip away at the idea of the inherent goodness of the charitable sector. “This book is the start of a process to systematically document our experiences, so our voices are the ones that shape the narrative," say the editors. "And, for those whom our stories resonate, we hope they give you the courage to voice your own experience. For those committed to being allies and accomplices in dismantling barriers and championing a sector culture of belonging and reciprocity, we hope the book illuminates a path to action.” US Edition Release by Rootstock Publishing. Originally published in Canada by Gail K. Picco at Civil Sector Press in November of 2020.

It’s 1968. A thirteen-year-old loner flees his abusive father and alcoholic mother for the lure of sunny California. He barely survives alone on the streets of Los Angeles, conversing with the ghost of his beloved dog and trying to avoid the police, until a fateful encounter leads him to the bohemian community of Venice Beach, known at the time as the “Slum-by-the-Sea.” He renames himself Moon, symbolizing his quest for something that will shine light on him, just as the sun illumines the moon. Over the next two years he struggles with first loves, confusion over his sexual identity, painful rejections, drug use, and haunting flashbacks from his childhood. As cultural upheaval over the Vietnam War rages, Moon assembles a new family of his own making, only to make a shocking and unexpected discovery that upends who he thought he was. "Venice Beach" is a moving tale of the resilience of youth and the importance of reflecting on our stories.

“If you have ever wanted to become a hiker or a long-distance walker, there is no better way to begin your journey than by joining Celia in Walking Home.” —Felicity Vaughan Swayze, author of War Torn: A Family Story Celia Ryker’s "Walking Home: Trail Stories" is about more than mud, sweat, and blisters while distance hiking the Long Trail. Reminiscent of Cheryl Strayed’s "Wild," Ryker’s mind wanders as her legs carry her forward, beyond a woodland path, to places and people she thought she had forgotten. Her grandmother’s spirit appears on Mount Baker. A lost cousin waits for her at the bottom of every ladder. Her late father’s words reverberate among the calls of barred owls. There were days when she didn’t see another hiker, but she was never alone. Celia began writing about a difficult hike and ended up writing about the people who inspired her throughout her life. These are her “trail stories.”

A personal memoir and a wake-up call for society to recognize and reject the erosion of critical thinking, An Everyday Cult is an essential read for understanding how people fall prey to mind control and cultic manipulation. Tracing the arc of eighteen years under a trusted teacher’s unethical tutelage, Gerette Buglion’s true-life story shows how her innocent quest for meaning is answered by a man who sees directly into her soul, awakening insight while simultaneously eroding her capacity for critical thinking. Through an increasingly murky and treacherous narrative, she lays bare the hallmarks of cultic manipulation—mind control that flies under the radar of human awareness—and implores society to wake up to its ever-present abuses of power. An Everyday Cult imparts a universal story, demonstrating how recognition of cultic membership—largely riddled with preconceived notions—may be an essential key to human evolution.

In 1917, Alice returns home to a world completely alien to the one she left in the Sahara.

Zimet handles with a light touch much which has been manhandled ponderously by other writers.

This is Not a How-To Book. It’s a Why-To Book. In 1949, Pete Seeger’s song If I Had a Hammer summoned us to repurpose everyday work tools into tools for social justice. That call still resonates today. You Have a Hammer: Building Grant Proposals for Social Change urges you to build proposals from a perspective of activism, transforming the work from the mundane pursuit of dollars to the life-altering pursuit of lasting change. It’s not about how to write grant proposals. It’s about how to use grantseeking as a tool for building a better world.

In the summer of 1978, Griffin-Nolan and a friend took to the road, hitchhiking from New York to California, on to New Orleans and back home to New York. As 2018 approached, the itch to hitch returned—but most people seemed to believe that this was now impossible. Griffin-Nolan decided to find out why nobody hitchhiked anymore. With a backpack, a hashtag, and a sign, he stuck out his thumb near his house, and let luck, and the road, take him where it would. Nobody Hitchhikes Anymore is an “act of loving rebellion” (Sean Kirst, Buffalo News) and a travelogue about a changing society and the people who lifted him up.

“A fine collection that gives grief the tonic sting of saltwater.” —Kirkus Starred Review "To the Man in the Red Suit is a remarkable first book. Christina Fulton, fully formed as a craftsperson and unique in her delivery, offers us the kind of searing fare we might want to empathize with or even turn from, but we can't. We must go further. The poems round about us like necklaces of deep thought and emotion, each segment of the chain bursting with colors of dark and light. Fulton's style links object after object with single modifiers in short phrases throughout the poems, each bit its own element of slightly changing viewpoint upon which to reflect her state, and by showing those objects, the subjective becomes real, becomes our state. This book is evidence of a bright and hopefully long career already well underway." —Al Rocheleau, Florida State Poets Association President and author of On Writing Poetry and Falling River: Collected Poems 1976-2016
