Provocative, engaging literature, non-fiction, and verse for the discerning reader. These are books you’ll talk about, share, and read multiple times.


Think of the books you’ll take on a vacation, curl up with over a long snowy weekend, encourage your friends to read, buy multiple copies to give as gifts.

These are the works we offer. This is what we mean by our motto, “Propertius prints for the ages.”


We are lovers of reading, of writing, and of the printed word.  We love the smell of books, the feel of crisp paper; we like to take our reading material everywhere we go.  We’ve embraced all forms of media because what’s portable is useful, and electronics helps to preserve old manuscripts for future generations.


Located in one of the oldest structures in our small southern Virginia town, we select only about a half-dozen to a dozen books a year at present, in addition to our anthology. We are dedicated to offering some of the finest quality reads on the market from a wide variety of authors and backgrounds.


We’re quite excited to be expanding to the Digital Media platform in order to offer e-publications for direct download. Generally electronic versions of our books will be released one to two months prior to the traditional printed copy. We will soon be offering audiobook versions of our most popular works, as well as special-edition hardcovers.


Thanks for your interest. We are glad to have you with us on the journey, and are certain you won’t be disappointed.


Best regards,

The Staff of Propertius Press
