.storytellers.

At Book of Matches, we are students of story,  studied and seasoned. We understand both the broad strokes to telling a compelling tale as well as the fine details.

We tell stories of the highest quality that appeal to our audience’s expectations as well as challenge genre convention, making our work feel both welcomingly familiar and refreshingly unique.

 
 

IMPRESSIONS

Welcome to a world unlike any other. Our IMPRESSIONS universe (based on the award-winning anthology screenplay from creators Geoffrey Young Haney and Brandon K. Tarleton) kicks off with a short story collection featuring adaptations from the screenplay from some of today's most exciting writers.

Then, later this year, comes the release of an IMPRESSIONS novel from author E. Nolan Carter. It will tell the tale of what happens after the screenplay wraps. And trust us, these two publications are only the beginning of this story... a story which YOU will be invited to be a part of.

In the long term, it is Book of Matches’ aim to be a company dedicated to forging and fostering “The New.” This means actively supporting talented artists with a range of perspectives and stories.

With this in mind, it is our goal to disrupt the exclusive and overwrought traditions of current commercial media models that leave too many unique voices undiscovered and too many artists unfairly compensated for their efforts.
