Books Are Beautiful!

3 Penny Publishing Logo

Welcome Writers and Readers! 3 Penny Publishing encourages self-publishing through our large collection of self-publishing resources. In addition, we are beginning to publish our own books and bookazines. We are located in Victoria, BC, a region overflowing with books, writers, readers, and publishers big and small.

Self-publishing resources

We are enthusiastic advocates of self-publishing and believe everyone from children to elders should tell their stories. The history of writers publishing their own books is long and today digital printing and ebooks allow more people to write and publish than ever before. With this in mind, we have created a large collection of self-publishing resources compiled from on-going research and gleanings from our writers’ workshops. While these listings are not exhaustive, many writers new to self-publishing have found them useful. And if you still can’t find answers to your questions, just send us an email.

Our books and other projects

As well as being self-publishing advocates and bibliophiles, we are in the early stages of publishing our own books.

On our events page you will find our upcoming events and links to other events in BC. These include literary festivals, book prize events, and writing courses. Resources to encourage children to write and publish are also listed.

Our video section features videos from past self-publishing workshops (with both fiction and non-fiction authors).

Check our Bookstores in Victoria page which also includes a link to a map of over 100 Little Free Libraries in the area.

In a city full of bookstores, it is easy to collect too many books. As well as sharing our book finds and favourites to Instagram, we’ll soon also feature some lovely used books on a sales page.

Lastly, if you love bookish things, you can support our self-publishing resource pages by visiting our Zazzle store.
