Aionios Books, LLC

Publisher of young adult, fantasy, and science fiction novels

About Us

Aionios Books is a boutique publishing house in Carlsbad, California. Our mission is to publish the works of debut or undiscovered writers of young-adult fantasy and science fiction novels.

Aionios Books began as a hybrid publisher in 2016, partnering with local authors to produce books across all genres, from poetry to fiction to humorous essays. In 2017, we decided to focus our efforts on young-adult science fiction and fantasy because this is the genre we love best.

We also decided to transition from hybrid to "traditional" publishing, shouldering all publication costs (for details, read our FAQs ). In this way, we support and champion the efforts of our debut novelists in our favorite genre.
