Chapter One - Literati Press Comics and Novels

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

Welcome to the first episode of the Okie Bookcast! In this chapter, I sit down with Charles Martin, Steve Gooch, Chloe Harrison, and James McGough from Literati Press Comics and Novels. We talk about the history of the publishing house and bookstore, how they make decisions about publishing projects and the curation of their store, their commitment to Oklahoma storytelling and their role in the community, and some past, present, and future projects to check out. You can find out more about Literati Press at and @literatipress on social media.

The crew from Literati Press: Chloe, Jonathan, Charles, James (standing), Jerry, Steve, Nick, and John Eric (holding Hiro the Corgi).

Our review of a favorite book for this chapter is from Hannah Joy Herron. You can find her novels Awake and Sleep Tight on Amazon and at bookstores in OKC. You can also find out more about Hannah and her work at
