We specialize in helping indie authors.

We came about because of two friends’ love of books, writing, and all things fantastical.

Hollow Hills is a haven for dreamers – those who like to create the dreams and those who like to partake of them.

Marie Krepps

CEO and co-founder of Hollow Hills

Marie Krepps writes adult novels and short stories of varying fiction genres including horror, science fiction, urban fantasy, high fantasy, dark fantasy, and paranormal romance. New ideas are popping up every day and there isn’t a fiction genre she won’t try on for size.

Music is a huge part of her life. There is always a song in her head and in her heart. Dreams also influence her work tremendously. Marie likes to escape in books to worlds beyond reality, and create her own worlds as well.

Writing and Editing Experience:

Though I have been writing all my life, I published my first short story in 2012 with a small company called, at that time, Whiskey Creek Press. I published a novel with them in 2014. During this time period, I was also a paid beta reader for an editing company called Quiethouse Copyediting. I had beta reading for friends for years before I found this job where I spent weeks on each author’s work: leaving notes in the manuscript and additional notes in a separate form, as well as ongoing email correspondences with each author. In 2015 I put out my first self-published book under a pen name. This experience taught me so much about the publishing industry and I was lucky to have the help and support of other indie authors to guide me on my journey as I continued to self-publish.

Later, Rey and I decided that we wanted our books published our way. So, in 2018, we opened Hollow Hills, LLC. We published our themed annual anthologies, books from other authors, and our own books. We were in charge of developmental editing, content editing, and line editing. We often walked authors through their entire manuscript to ready it for publication. Then we made new contacts with artists for cover art and formatted books for sales sites. Now, we have refocused the company to concentrate on editing.
