Our Mission

Red Scorpion Press was formed in January 2016 with the hope of bettering the world in a small way through publishing. Our aim is to push boundaries and be an outlet for fresh voices and unique perspectives that entertain and inform.

Scorpion Lore

The red scorpion is unique because of a fearless drive to endure. Scorpions are found on every continent (with the exception of Antarctica). The scorpion is crafty and not easily crushed underfoot by giant creatures and can accomplish its objectives with single a well-placed strike.The scorpion doesn’t produce venom because it wants to, but it produces it because it is compelled by nature. Nor does the scorpion kill indiscriminately; it kills for survival.

Red Scorpion Press was formed as part of a wild dream and in the effort to contribute to the literacy of tomorrow with the hope of a better the world one book at a time.
