Houston is a city that is filled with fascinating stories and storytellers. Bright Sky is unique in its ability to support these storytellers with personal attention, reliable service, and an understanding of the nuances of their messages. By publishing these local histories, memoirs and stories, we ensure that they will not linger at the bottom of a national publisher’s slush pile. Instead, they make their way into the world, preserving and informing our history and culture.
Since 2001, Bright Sky has grown and evolved to meet the challenges of the changing publishing landscape. With an ever-vigilant eye on the industry, we determined in 2017 that our mission was best served by a non-profit structure. Bright Sky continues to strengthen its brand and create significant titles that preserve different aspects of our Texas heritage. From history to children’s, and sports to cookbooks, many of our titles fill important gaps by telling previously untold stories and providing important resources for learning about our Texas culture. We’re proud of our strong reputation of quality publishing. Our books win notable awards, receive positive reviews and enhance the lives of both authors and readers. Bright Sky means a positive presence in the community. Providing access to publication for local authors, supporting literacy groups like Writers in the Schools, partnering with organizations such as the Barbara Busch Houston Literacy Foundation, Books Between Kids, the Wade Smith Foundation and others. As a strong non-profit organization, Bright Sky Publishing will broaden the support of the good work we’ve done in the past and expand this work in the future.
