Three Rooms Press Featured in leading industry journal Publishers Weekly

This spring, Three Rooms Press is releasing Celestial Mechanics, the debut novel of bestselling author William Least Heat-Moon. It's our first hardcover, and it's a very big deal: Heat-Moon's classic travel book Blue Highways was on the New York Times Bestseller list for 42 weeks, and has sold more than 6 million copies, and each of his subsequent books have also received a very wide readership. 

On a personal note, Three Rooms Press co-director Kat Georges notes that Blue Highways was one of the most influential books she read as a young adult, inspiring her with the Heat-Moon's masterful writing style. The release has generated critical praise and as the release date approaches, the popular publishing industry trade publication Publishers Weekly took an interest, resulting in a prominent feature article in its most recent issue.

“We’re in this to do good for the reader, the publishing world, for literature as a whole,” Carlaftes said. “That’s where we’re at.

Read the full article here. And thanks for your ongoing support of Three Rooms Press. Be sure to keep in touch! William Least Heat-Moon's debut novel is available online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Powells. You can also order it from an indie bookstore close to you by visiting and typing in your zip code.
