Cook Publishing is a traditional publisher and content provider committed to producing projects of the highest quality and standards.  Although built around the traditional publishing model, we are anything but traditional in our process. As an independent, we actively seek experimentation in both subjects and approaches.  This, along with an intentionally small number of publishing projects pursued annually, allows us to focus on our authors including emerging and developing artists like few other publishing companies can.  Collaboration and creativity across multiple media domains are our specialties.

Cook Publishing is also home to two imprints - Chatelain Press and Ops Check Books. Chatelain Press focuses on adult fiction including novels and short stories. Ops Check Books specializes in non-fiction and academic publishing, particularly in the military history, leadership, and national security subject areas.
