About

Who We Are

And our history

Arachis Press originated when our founder (and main author) Stephen Brooke  needed copies of his first poetry book to sell at readings. It grew from there. Stephen was already a published author in the nonfiction field, writing for magazines through the Eighties and Nineties, but decided to take control into his own hands after shopping his first novel, the YA ‘The Middle of Nowhere’ around with many nibblers but none taking the bait. Basically, he became impatient with the delays and wanted to move on. And so, the Arachis Press was born. It was, the first couple years, known as Nihil Crocodile Press, but that changed when we got serious and put out the first novel. Many books and years later, we are still at it. We’ll have more to say, but that should do for now!
