Sigma's Bookshelf - New Book Publishing Company Exclusively for Teen Authors

Introducing Sigma’s Bookshelf, a new book publishing company exclusively for teen authors (ages 12 - 19). 

Sigma’s Bookshelf was started up in 2016 by Minnetonka teenager Justin M. Anderson, whose debut book, Saving Stripes: A Kitty’s Story, was released in 2015. It has been a huge success, selling more than 200 copies in its first year on the market, and raising thousands of dollars for S.O.S. Rescue Relief, Inc., a nonprofit whose mission is to prevent euthanasia in adoptable pets.

Justin wanted to help his fellow teenage authors enjoy their own publishing success, so with the help of his parents he started up Sigma’s Bookshelf. The company name was inspired by Sigma, one of the characters in Justin's soon-to-be released novel, Nothing But Trouble.

The company is now accepting submissions online through the website,
