Marcher Lord Press is Rebranded with a New Name

by Steve Laube

At the recent Realm Makers conference in Philadelphia I had the privilege to announce that Marcher Lord Press is being rebranded as Enclave Publishing. I am excited to officially reveal the new logo below (More thoughts after the picture).


Notice the tip of the sword…

Why the name Enclave Publishing? An enclave is essentially defined as a group of like-minded people in a place where they are surrounded by those who are not like-minded. West Berlin was an enclave during the Cold War. In Rome there is an enclave called Vatican City. Enclave Publishing is a place where authors and fans of Christian Fantasy and Science Fiction can come together. A haven. A gathering where we encourage each other, explore new ideas, hone our craft, and then take our stories out to the highways and byways where they will spark the imagination. It is not an insular or secretive society hiding behind walls. Instead it is the opposite.

There is a verse in the Bible that encapsulates what the books published by Enclave Publishing are all about. Acts 17:20 reads “You bring some strange things to our ears. We wish to know therefore what these things mean.” The highly creative stories in the Speculative Fiction genre can seem strange but underneath they contain powerful expressions of Redemption, Truth, and Hope. 

We are developing the website for and it should be up and running in the next 30 days (see the banner artwork below.)

This Fall there will be new books by Nadine Brandes, John Otte, J. Wesley Bush, and Gillian Bronte Adams (look for those announcements!). We have recently signed Ronie Kendig to write a Fantasy trilogy for release next year. In addition 2015 will see new books from Sharon Hinck, Morgan Busse, and others.

    Congratulations on the powerful name. Enclave. My mind will think of Enclave Publishing as I roam around Rome and the Vatican next week. Thanks for that thought. Rejoicing with those authors signed to write for Enclave. Nice going John Otte…Blessings. Warmly, Gail

    Love the new name and logo and I especially love the verse you shared. I gravitate toward those verses that talk about the mystery and wonder of God. My favorite is Ecclesiastes 3:11. “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” This verse is at the heart of why I write speculative fiction.

    I’m excited to see what this next chapter brings for Enclave Publishing.

    I love it. Love the the sword/pencil combination and the look of it. Can totally picture it on the bottom of a book spine. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the website. Praying God’s blessings over Enclave.

      This is great idea, Steve. Thank you for creating a safe place for those authors who write a bit “outside the box.”

    Much better than the new Penguin Random House logo.
