Publisher info

Heaven Lake Press was founded in 1998. The mission is to publish authors whose books focus people, events, culture and history in Southeast Asia. In the past five years, we have been recognized as a publisher of quality books. We put a great deal of care in the production of our books. We have worked with some of Thailand's leading translators and are proud of our relationship with the Thai writing community. We have also have licensed German translations in exciting, modern fiction set in Thailand.

Heaven Lake Press is a small team of professionals who run a small Thai publishing house. We have a growing list of authors. Our authors include Canadian, American, Cambodian and Thai writers. We hope to expand our list of authors and titles in the future. Our offices are located in Bangkok. Our hardback and trade paperback books are distributed to leading bookstores in Thailand, including Asia Books, Bookazine, Kinokuniya, B2S, The Book in Phuket, and Suriwong in Chiang Mai. Amarin is our distributor for our Thai language titles which can be found in over 150 bookstores in Thailand.

We specialize in fiction – literary and crime fiction, as well as books on history, language, culture and relationships. Our list of non-fiction titles is quickly expanding. We are publishing three memoirs in 2006. Our books are published primarily in the English language, although we have started to publish books translated into the German and Thai languages.
