Papers Creative Agency

Support Small Independent Business

We're an independent online bookstore whose purpose is to share our love of spooky and speculative titles that may have gone unnoticed. Our aim is to work directly with indie publishers to ensure our featured authors get the recognition they desevre. 


Get a Little Extra for Your Money

We try to give our customers a little gift for shopping with us by including exclusive promos from the publishers. This can include signed bookplates, bookmarks, bonus content from the authors or stickers we happen to like at the time.

Join Our Community

Do you ever get that burning need to discuss a book you're reading but no one you know have read it? We do. That's why we have a discord where our customers can discuss titles they've bought here. Or any spooky/spec you want - we're always looking for book recommendations!
