About Us

skeezel press

Based in Erie PA, Skeezel Press was established in 2004 when founder Patricia Merski expanded her wings beyond ‘housewife and mother extraordinaire’ to author and publisher, with the creation of a single title, Roaring Boring Alice (A Story of the Aurora Borealis). Known for our unusual storylines, our books are characterized by innovative thinking and exquisite illustrations that appeal to young and old, from all walks of life. 

We produce one or two books at a time, within a framework that is somewhere between a traditional and hybrid publishing model as defined by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA). We adhere to industry standards in all aspects of the publishing process, from manuscript selection and editing, to illustration development and professional design. Our titles are currently widely distributed by Small Press United (SPU), Chicago, IL USA a subsidiary of Independent Publishers Group, Chicago, IL USA
