Publisher

In 2014, I started an independent small press called Sawaga River Press, SawagaRiverPress.com

Sawaga River Press values diversity and equity in publishing, as well as the right to self-represent.

Sawaga River Press is committed to publishing books that explore and celebrate children’s experience in the Filipino diaspora.  We aim to create diverse children’s books that bolster self-esteem and foster a sense of belongingness.  We publish children’s books that will encourage children to read and learn about their cultural and ancestral roots.

JACK & AGYU (FALL 2019)

Sawaga River Press published its most recent book, Jack & Agyu, in Fall 2019.  Jack & Agyu won the 2020 Best Children’s Book Gold Award from the Publishing Professionals Network and  the 2020 Benjamin Franklin Gold Award from the Independent Book Publishers Association.
