About Chimayo Press

Chimayo Press is an independent educational publishing company committed to publishing niche books that create compelling conversations, deepen relationships and celebrate the human spirit. We launched in 2005 with one advanced level English as a Second Language (ESL) title – Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics – from authors Eric H. Roth and Toni Aberson.  This fluency-focused textbook has blossomed into series meeting the varying needs of English language learners and their teachers in over 50 countries. Two more Compelling Conversation books are set to release in the summer: Compelling Conversations Japan: Questions and Quotations for High-Intermediate Japanese English Language Learners and Compelling American Conversations: A Teacher’s Guide with Commentary, Supplemental Exercises, and Reproducible Pages. See our FAQ Page About the Compelling Conversations series here.

Along the way, we’ve also met exceptional authors.  In 2011, Chimayo Press expanded to include works of fiction and is the exclusive publisher of Star Boy and Bronco Billy (eBook) by writer/producer Dennis E. Hackin. In 2014, Hackin published Android Roy, a futuristic novel featuring the world’s first android homicide detective.

Chimayo Press is named for our amazingly communicative, talented and loving first border collie.  We met him soon after a visit to the inspirational New Mexico town.  That’s Chimayo’s image in our logo.
