About Amberjack Publishing

Amberjack Publishing’s promise is the joy of discovery and the celebration of flawed characters who help readers connect to humanity. Our authors believe in a world which can be more thoughtful, more humane, and more beautiful. We respect the faith that each reader commits to trusting us to share individual stories that are vital, empathetic, and transformational.

Amberjack Publishing is a publishing company based in Idaho with a strong vision and passion for books. We have officially been telling stories since 2014, but we were born storytellers. We are committed to sharing the literature of the individual that dares to stand alone, one who isn't afraid to challenge the status quo, to be different—to be more, not less. We want to help writers tell these stories and to help readers discover them.

A consultant and author of eight science fiction and children’s books, Justin enjoys reading any and all kinds of literature, though his favorite is science fiction.

Cherrita Lee, Managing Editor
Cherrita Lee was hired at Amberjack Publishing in 2014. She is what you might call an "avid indoorswoman" and can be found reading anything from ancient Greek literature to manga. Delighting in indulging her nerdy side, she is a huge fangirl of Doctor Who, Harry Potter, anime, Sherlock, Supernatural, and all things British and Korean . . . and the Oxford comma.

Jana Good, Senior Editor
