fragile lives, strong stories.

There are times when a story must be told in print. If yours is one of them, and you are not looking to become a famous author or rich from a bestselling book, you may want to self-publish.


clay pen press is an independent publisher located in Des Moines, Iowa.  Our books showcase true stories of triumph through tragedy, courage in catastrophe and grace over guilt.

Though we prefer to publish books that brag on God's great works, we will also consider titles that are not necessarily about God, but hold to ethical and moral standards.

Every life is a story

clay pen press publishes true-life stories that champion the miraculous work of God in difficult circumstances. If you have a story that can only be told with praise on your tongue for what God did to change your life, please let us know:
