Dragonfly Publishing is going through some changes! We used to be an imprint of Moon Willow Press, a small indie press that published authors from around the world. Moon Willow Press closed in August 2022 after the last of our author contracts finished. Dragonfly Publishing will stand alone as a self-publishing company that might occasionally print anthologies. We also have other services.

  • The Adventures of Finn Wilder has expanded into a new series: Outdoor Tales for Kids! Click here for Book 1, The Mountains, coming in time for the 2023 winter holidays.
  • We had a wonderful time at Flights of Foundry with the Rewilding Our Stories Discord on April 15, 2023. We discussed science communication in ecofiction.
  • Free digital review copies are temporarily available for Back to the Garden, The Stolen Child, and Bird Song: A Novella
  • The Stolen Child is now available for print through Ingram’s distribution channels! You can also read a sample here and find a press release on the order link.
  • The Stolen Child print copy became available on January 26 but is still making its way into distribution channels.
  • The ebook for The Stolen Child is published! Watch for the print book in January 2023.
  • After a trial period with a separate blog website, I’ve decided that during our move to new hosting I will remove the Clara Hume blog and move the blog back to this site. Please visit the original blog to read more! I will also be removing the website I set up for Finn Wilder books. I just don’t have the time to produce enough content for that site, and all you really need is to follow along with any new books here.
  • During the whole month of July, our Smashwords e-books will be discounted! Use the code ML25Y.
  • If you loved Back to the Garden, its sequel, The Stolen Child, is available for pre-order at Smashwords. The print and e-book will be published on November 18, 2022!
  • Some fun news today! Temporarily, Back to the Garden is a pay-your-own price at Smashwords (minimum cost is $.99 USD). A new edition of The Little Big Town is available. Also,  the e-book version of Bird Song: A Novella has been reduced in price and, further, is 50% off from now until March 23 at Smashwords. Use the code DB85H when you check out.
  • As I continue to transition my own books from Moon Willow Press, and move away from Amazon, I’ve set up a Smashwords site for my e-books. Check there to buy Dragonfly Pub books in e-format.
  • I finally added some of the older books from Moon Willow, including the Lost Ages series of short stories and the children’s story The Little Big Town.
  • Dragonfly announces a new series of children’s books, which coincide with the birth of a young boy in the family: Finn Wilder.
  • Announcing the second edition of Winds of Change, an anthology exploring short stories about our climate. The title was originally published in October 2015, and 15% of its sales go to The book is still being used in universities teaching about fiction and climate change. Because of this, we will not change any of the beloved stories but will offer a new cover, updated author biographies, and a new introduction.
  • Fairly new this year are two new services: book reviews and editorial.
  • I’ll be moving promoting other indie bookstores rather than focusing on Amazon for sales.
  • New at the site is a plugin called BookPress, which I’ll use to share more samples of Dragonfly’s books.
