About Pantera Press

Pantera Press is a boutique Australian book publisher with big differences.

Some great businesses have started in home garages: think Disney, Amazon and Google. Pantera Press sprang to life around the story-loving Green family’s kitchen table, because their garage was full.

We view the so-called ‘slush pile’ of Australian unsolicited manuscripts differently. To us, it’s a valuable resource – an underexplored diamond mine. When we started, we felt that if everyone’s supposed ‘to have a book in them’, Australia must be bursting with 22 million stories, many of them gems waiting to be discovered, polished and set for readers to enjoy! As well as publishing great stories, we aim to contribute to the wider community, hence our unique ‘good books doing good things’ approach.

Pantera Press has grown so fast since our start that we’ve had to quit the kitchen table for a real office, but at least our board table sports a ping pong net. Having released our first titles in 2010 (in print and in e-books), we were short-listed in 2013 and 2014 for the Australian Book Industry’s Small Publisher of the Year Award and shortlisted in 2015 for the ABIA Innovation Award and Small Publisher Adult Book of the Year Award. We’ve been developing a stable of talented new authors writing gripping tales and getting rave reviews, and assembled a team of seasoned industry professionals from some of the biggest names in publishing, including editors, designers and our distribution partners at Bloomsbury.

Our passion is publishing books readers rave about by discovering and nurturing talented new authors, and fostering debate. And our good books doing good thingsTM program, which is part of the Pantera Press Foundation, gives us a strong ‘profits for philanthropy’ foundation.
