Crescent Renewal Imprint

crescentrenewalweb-books

Crescent Renewal Books presents educational and uplifting stories that—while not focusing on animals—abide by the “Do No Harm” principle as it applies to our animal friends.

We formed the Crescent Renewal imprint in fall 2017 as a result of requests by our authors to publish titles they’d written that were not animal-related. While our focus will remain on Who Chains You Books and our advocacy for animals, we will review manuscripts that abide by the “Do No Harm” principle for our animal friends, too.

Crescent Renewal Books will publish books in all genres from children to adult and fiction to nonfiction that we find educational and uplifting, as long as our animal friends are respected throughout whenever they appear.

Do you represent a nonprofit? If you’d like to order our books in bulk to sell to benefit your organization, please visit our Nonprofit Order Page or email us at info@whochainsyou.com for special wholesale pricing.

If you’re interesting in submitting a book for publishing consideration, visit our submissions page. In addition, we’re printing a whole series of fun and/or educational books featuring YOUR STORIES, too! See the submissions page for more info.
