Greetings Earthling!

Thank you for taking the time to check out our website! Please feel free to poke around, check out our current list and see what upcoming releases we have, and if you have any questions, you can contact us, and we will do our best to help.

Our mission is to collaborate with authors to create the best possible books that delight and inspire and entertain – and also pay a fair royalty to the author. We treat every book as it if were our own and though we are small now, we have plans to take the publishing world by storm.

The publishing world is virtually unrecognisable compared to ten years ago, before the advent of Kindle and Print on Demand, and though it’s now easier than ever before to get your words into print, the industry is now more of a minefield than ever. Our aim is to demystify and guide, and share our knowledge with authors to help them to fulfil their dreams.

Not From This Planet is the creation of Michelle Gordon and Elizabeth Lockwood. Two out of this world people whose paths crossed back in the early ’90s because their dads were drinking buddies. Their mutual love of books, Alanis Morrisette and veggie cuisine created a friendship that would last forever.

They have been working together to publish books for the last eleven years, and are both authors as well as publishers.

Michelle and Elizabeth also work with other professionals to create the best possible books for their clients. Check out the Other Authors page to see the books they have worked on.

Not From This Planet is growing fast with five imprints so far, and more planned.

The Amethyst Angel (metaphysical/spiritual fiction)
Labradorite Press (non-fiction)
Turquoise Quill Press (poetry)
Amber Beetle Books (children’s fiction)
Jasper Tree Press (general fiction)

If you would like to collaborate with us but write in a different genre, contact us anyway – we plan to expand into other genres soon.

We have 23 books available so far, with three more being released by the end of 2022.
