About AMP

Exceptional stories.

We’re an indy publisher, which means we can publish only the very best.

So Animal Mineral publishes the bold and exceptional. Stories that are timely and timeless. Characters that stay with you. Ideas that pulse to the beat of your heart. 

Animal Mineral’s founders are two independent women who work across multiple media platforms and bring varied professional lives and personal experiences to the work. We’re committed to growth — for the company and for ourselves. We read and listen to books because we love books. We look to stories for experiences outside of ourselves and to discover what it is we didn’t even know we didn’t know. And we seek books that help us see ourselves more clearly.

Celebratory. Compassionate. Courageous. Provocative. Connected. Challenging.

When you hear Animal Mineral, you know there’s a book you should read.
