Tuscany Bay Publishing began as an online magazine publisher in Half Moon Bay, California in 2007. In 2013, it transitioned to publishing non-fiction books and novels. In June of 2017, Black Dog Publishing and Tuscany Bay Publishing merged and became Tuscany Bay Books. 

Our royalty rate is 30% of earned royalties to the author, far higher than that offered by traditional publishers, because we believe that royalties should flow to the author. Tuscany Bay Books does not charge authors upfront fees to publish their books, as was the case before under a now-discontinued program. * – Please note that books you purchase directly from Tuscany Bay Books are not eligible to receive royalties as they are sold to the author at a discounted price.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our founding partner, James Christina, on Sunday, June 19, 2022.

Jim had been battling respiratory issues related to his time in service during the Vietnam War in the 1970s and finally succumbed to those injuries. 

He was a great writer, a savvy businessman, a musician, and, more importantly, an incredible friend.

We extend our condolences to his wife, Gerry, his family, and all of his friends who have been hit with this terrible news. There will not be a single day that passes without us missing you terribly, Jim.
