Who we are


Cosmographia Books 

was founded in 2015 by writer and editor Nina Alvarez

with the help of Carolyn Birrittella, who has given much marketing, editorial, and event support. In recent years, "Cosmonauts" Megan Downing and Linnea Schaefer joined and have given much outreach and event support as well. We've also received support, encouragement, and kindness from so many people in our community, including Daniel Herd and Chris Fanning of Writers & Books, "The Last Word" on WAYO.fm, Lindsay Herko, Kenneth Kelbaugh of Before Your Quiet Eyes Bookstore, Al Abonado of "Flour City Yawp," friends and family, and all those who have reviewed our books, set up events for our authors, interviewed our authors, purchased our books and merch, and generally made us feel seen, loved, and heard. Thank you. It all matters, it really does.


WHere you can purchase our books

All our books are available on Amazon, some can be purchased on BarnesandNoble.com or other online sellers. And most of our books can be purchased at Before Your Quiet Eyes bookstore in Rochester, New York, and other brick-and-mortar bookstores. For booksellers, some of our titles can be purchased through Ingram Spark.
