Upcoming Amrah Publishing House Events in Edmonton!

We’re excited to announce that you can come out to see some of Amrah’s publications in person, if you will be in the area of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada this season. We will be displaying our works at two separate events.


What prompted this exciting development? Well, after releasing many short stories in ebook-only format, we decided to branch out into releasing one of our works in a limited print edition only. The work we chose to try this with is an illustrated booklet about the city of Edmonton’s history, as seen through the changes occurring around one specific house. This booklet is written by Harma-Mae Smit, and illustrated by Paulina Van Vliet. Our initial printing was received positively, and sold well. We were also pleased to display it at the Edmonton Design Week, and see it at local retailers!


So after releasing our first, physical item, we thought it made sense to have a physical presence at the Capital City Press Book Festival in September, as well as the Cedar and Snow Festival in November! Come see our limited edition of ‘Six Decades, Three Generations – One House,” as well as a few of our other releases. Or just come to say hi! We’re excited to see you there.

About The Amrah Publishing House

We are a small publishing venture that specializes in light-hearted literature, both fiction and non-fiction. We don't see literature as divided between escapism and realism, but rather aim to bring the benefits of both to our readers. Our stories will connect with your lived experience, while lifting you out of the daily grind as you read. Our most recent release is an illustrated storybook about Edmonton's history - a story that is more than the individual story of one family, but rather a story that connects us to a city we all share. This little booklet is by sisters Harma-Mae Smit (writer) and Paulina Van Vliet (illustrator) about a house in #yeg and how the world changes around it. This is a great book to teach your children about urban sprawl! And it's a great way for city-dwellers to connect more deeply with the city in which they live. We've previously published short pieces of fiction as ebooks as well. Keep on top of our latest offerings by following us at amrahpublishinghouse.com.
