Black Meredith Press

an Independent Book Publisher for the Surreal yet Familiar


Founded in 2017 by Brittani S. Avery, Black Meredith Press specializes in literary fantasy and science fiction that create people and places surreal yet familiar. Our mission is to open the doors of imagination and give readers access to unique worlds created by new authors hailing from diverse and exceptional backgrounds. We are dedicated to fostering creative expression, ensuring that every book we publish brings readers on unforgettable journeys to uncharted literary realms.

The name “Black Meredith Press” was inspired by the trees of our fonder’s childhood home. In her youth, Avery spent countless hours exploring the cluster of trees in her backyard. She, along with her siblings, cousins, and friends, created numerous worlds underneath the shade of the leaves. They fought aliens, practiced swordplay with sticks, hiked mountains, launched spy missions. These fond memories of vibrant imagination and peek creativity presented the perfect name for her new publisher.
