Welcome from Storyteller Publishing:
“Art for art’s sake is an empty phrase. Art for the sake of the true, art for the sake of the good and the beautiful, that is the faith I am searching for.” – Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dudevant (George Sand)
Ms. Dudevant’s words are a mantra for us here at Storyteller Publishing. Art that is shared should be to entertain, but more importantly to guide and to encourage. When we publish, we ensure that, with entertainment in mind, we’re still invoking positive ideas in those who read our works. One of the most important things we do to achieve this is representation. We do not get to choose who we share this world with, there is so much diversity not just in skin color, religion, or sexuality, but in personality, lifestyle, and character, and because we do not get to choose, we must learn to accept, work, and live with those who likewise wish to live in peace. Representing these diversities is a need we feel that every forum of media has to fulfill. When you create something to be shared with the world, the world must be reflected in it. We must acknowledge that diversity not only exists but is valid, that different is just different; normal not harmful, even that which is not normal to you. It is our goal to prove that when you bring people together, our diversities are what give us strength, but the path to that strength is the ability to empathize with those who are different than you. Representation is a light on the path to empathy.
When we all work together, we are better for it as people, as a society, as a world. Enjoy our work, we've made a place for you.
