Anne Stanton, Heather Shaw and Doug Weaver live near Mission Point Lighthouse on Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay — inspiration for the name of our company.

We work every day in a region of unbelievable beauty where so many artists and writers have also chosen to live. We believe that by sharing stories, reading and reflecting, we enlarge our own lives and those of others.

Books transform lives and have for centuries. We live and breathe the beauty of the written word, and believe it carries equal power in a Kindle or in a beautiful, four-color printed book.


Mission Point Press is the exclusive licensee of the Chandler Lake Books imprint.

Mission Point Press may recommend to authors that they publish their book as a Chandler Lake Books project, depending on a book's subject matter and audience.
