About Us

We are a small, independent press located in Capitola, California. Capitola is a small community located on Monterey Bay east of Santa Cruz. The Capitola Book Company is an outgrowth of the Ow family businesses that moved from Monterey to Capitola in the early 1960s. We focus on publishing books that reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the Monterey Bay Region.

Unsolicited Manuscripts

Our publication schedule for the next three years is full, and we are not accepting any unsolicited manuscripts at this time.
