Publisher looking for local stories

Everyone has a Tahoe story. Bona Fide Books wants to read yours.

Bona Fide Books, a small press in Meyers, is seeking short fiction and nonfiction for a collection about life at the lake. Micro-stories from any genre are welcome: memoir, humor, action-adventure, tragedy, mystery, love or love lost, even ghost stories. The only requirements are that each piece must be about, or occur in, the Tahoe region, and it can be no more than 500 words.

Like the pea-sized gold nugget sifted out of the Upper Truckee, tiny but priceless. Short enough to be read on the lift or while sipping a latte. No time for a warm-up, just instant clarity.

No subject is taboo. Gambling, mountaineering, romance – let it fly. Unsung stories are also sought: the Washoe, the environmentalists, old-timers. Bona Fide Books wants to hear from everyone and create a book that reflects the beautiful, confounding, and deep place we live.

Submissions will be accepted through May 1, 2011. Visit for more information.
