Nightshade Publishing™ was founded in 2019 by Xanna Renae. In 2022 Willow Whitehead joined the team as a co-founder.
Nightshade Publishing’s mission is to publish the stories that inspire the beauty in chaos. Our goal is to steadily grow as a traditional publishing house. Currently we only publish anthologies. We hope to be able to publish other author’s novels within the next few years.
Xanna Renae loves daydreaming about how to save her characters from the messes she puts them in. She can be easily found where tea is brewing and pages are turning in tandem with her purring cat.
She’s currently giving life to the ideas in her head and has published a collection of fantastical short stories and poems titled Through the Violet Redwoods
Willow Whitehead has a love/hate relationship with writing, the words will spill onto the page faster than she can type, or she’ll stare at a blank document for hours. Though the words always come a bit easier in the middle of the night.
Currently, she spends her days reading, drinking tea, and chasing her black cat, Z, through the woods.
