Telling Great Stories

At AreULost Press, we recognize that everyone alive grew up in an age of causality but we now live in an age of correlation. That feeds deception, hides truth, and spins stories at the speed of light along the axis of the Internet.

For us, we love helping people tell their stories. Especially stories of faith and inspiration. Sometimes, this is a Children's book with author created art. Sometimes, it is a futuristic story of the Deception that is coming. Telling great stories, for us, spans children's books to murder mysteries and Bicycle prayer treks across the country to Science Fiction.

Our Editing packages can get you started then we get your story book ready for sale as a paperback or eBook or both. Please review the packages and pick one for your work.

We have helped these authors tell their stories...
