Founded in 2014, Accendo Books is a small press located in Hammond, Louisiana. Taken from the Latin, Accendo means to inspire, ignite or kindle. Both fiction and non-fiction will be published in print, electronic, and audio formats. Accendo is a micro-press with a focus on publishing the best books available in print, one book at a time, one author at a time. Our goal is simple: Fine Books. Inspiring Ideas.
Dayne Sherman, author, librarian, and professor, is the founding publisher and editor of Accendo Books. He started the press to be a true Indie, but he’s hardly solo. He has the help of dozens of friends and loved ones, and he’s thinking of getting a Basset Hound to help guard the office.
