Makoto Press is a veteran-owned publishing company that offers a diverse selection of creator-owned novels, illustrated stories, comic books, and other works of literature..


Makoto Press was founded in 2010 by two former Marines who wanted to pursue the American dream of building a career with nothing more than the ideas in their heads and the skills in their hands. They wanted to create something unique to reflect theirs and their fellow veterans' diverse backgrounds. So, they formed an independent publishing company that will not only publish great books, but will also feature and promote original works of literature created by those who have served


Makoto Press has published two books to-date: MEGA '99: Adventures of an Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker and Gruesome Tales to Tickle Your Terror BoneMakoto Press will publish an assortment of books in the years to come. However, Makoto Press is currently devoting its time to developing a long-term business plan. Please contact us with any questions or comments.
