At Puffy Cloud Creations, we are passionate about helping authors and writers achieve their publishing goals. Whether you're a first-time author or an experienced writer, we offer a range of publishing services to suit your needs. We can guide you through every step of the publishing process, from doing the actual writing for you to editing and formatting to distribution and marketing. Would you like to take care of the entire process yourself but perhaps you‘re looking for guidance, especially in the overwhelming formatting stages of publishing? No problem! We can help you there too, for a small reasonable fee. Please contact us at PuffyCloudPublishers@gmail.com.
Please note: As a company, under our First Amendment right of the US Constitution, an amendment we all share, we reserve the right to reject any writing that we deem offensive to our morals and/or Roman Catholic religious beliefs. If it offends you that we take this stance, you have the right to shop elsewhere. That being said, we do not consider any Sacreligious, Sexually Explicit or Horror writing. Some select tasteful Gothic Fiction, Dark Fantasy & Psychological Thrillers will be considered, [think, The Shining, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Tell-Tale Heart, etc], we don’t discourage anyone from submitting these genres but please be forewarned that they are not in our typical wheelhouse so we don’t accept them as often.
With that being said, what type of writing are we accepting? We are always accepting the following: Chic Lit, Children’s Literature, Christian Fiction, Fables, Fairytales, Fantasy (PG-13), Fiction in Verse, General Fiction, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Mythology, Nonfiction, Poetry, Romance (Harlequin-style), Sci-Fi, Scripts/Screenplays, Short Stories, Westerns & Young Adult Fiction.

Our logo represents both Puffy Cloud Creations, LLC and Puffy Cloud Publishers. Please see below to learn the story behind our name !
This isn’t the only place you’ll find bits & pieces of our story across this site, but since we aren’t shy and we are a bit proud of our struggles to get here- we’ll reiterate here in case you missed our story in a different spot. Just consider this the abridged version. We are a small, independently-owned, online-only Freelance & Creative Arts Publishing Company that has been in business as an LLC since 2015 (unofficially since 2009), having taken a brief hiatus in 2018 into 2020. The name, Puffy Cloud Creations, originated from the sounds of children playing, a dog barking, and an ice cream truck ringing on a hot ac-free summer’s afternoon during a sunny day of cloud watching on Long Island. The logo was drawn to capture the imagery and likeness of childhood.
Our company may be young but we’re well-educated, passionate, experienced and very good at what we do. Our mission is to provide high-quality freelance work, as well as high-quality published products that satisfy our clientele and also inspire, educate, and entertain readers of all ages. As writers and graphic designers ourselves, we also write, illustrate and publish our own works with our publishing label.
Red & Ollie: The First Big Day Out (Book One), as well as the second book in The Atlantic Adventures of Red & Ollie, the prequel entitled, The Shallow Shelf: Teatime for Toddler Fish, and any other future publications as well as (nearly) all freelance services, are available for sale in our
Puffy Clouds & Feather Pen (PC & FP) Shop.
The first two book covers and blurbs of the aforementioned titles can be seen above 👆 here on our Puffy Cloud Publishers page. Again, they can be purchased in our PC & FP Shop. Only certain freelance services are offered throughout the year depending on season, read more on this on our shop page.
Holding a portfolio full of ghostwritten material, there is a fair amount of material that we are unable to display as per NDA agreements. However for interested Freelance customers, we do have a Copyright Portfolio which can be accessed/referenced (at request) by e-mail. All Freelance Services are described on the Feather Pen Freelance page.
As Freelancers, Puffy Cloud Publishers work with clients worldwide, past the reaches of the US shores. In fact, all of our freelance services are found in our ‘Puffy Clouds & Feather Pen’ Shop, but not all are active depending on season. If there’s something you want that you don’t see, just ask, by text or call or e-mail (contact info below). There is no country we don’t serve.
As Publishers, we can either take work we have ghostwritten for you or take work you’ve done yourself, & help make your dreams come true by publishing & marketing on your behalf @ a very competitive cost (just check out the shop)! Again, there is no country we don’t service.
If you're an author looking to publish your work, we'd love to hear from you.

Puffy Cloud Publishers is one of a handful of subsidiaries of the main company, Puffy Cloud Creations, LLC. Puffy Cloud Publishers is the publishing company of the main ‘house’. Any books being published come from PCP. It is one of our most well-known subsidiaries (and one of our favorites).
Please allow me to answer this broadly Before specifically. Puffy Cloud Publishers had marketed, published and printed a book through the print house, Gorham Printing, in Washington, a few years back [when we were brand new to the publishing world] for a TED talk speaker prior to taking a break as a company.
Now back to stay, strengthen and grow, Puffy Cloud Publishers is focusing on puttting out it’s own work as well as putting out the work of others. Our reason for this is simple- due to all of our time put into our freelance work for clients over the years, we never did put out our own work. In fact, our work was collecting dust while we put out the work of others, While we are glad we did that, we also knew we were coming to a time where, in fairness, it was our turn.
So, yes, this is the first work we are putting out that is ours, with both the author’s name and the company name published together, both part of Puffy Cloud Publishers.
As you likely already know, Red and Ollie: The First Big Day Out, is a children’s picture book for ages 4- to 8-years-old. It is the beginning of The Atlantic Adventures of Red & Ollie. The book has released as of 09/28/23, but has already sold out and another shipment 📦 🚚 is coming in.
As to answer the question, there is a prequel before any sequels, which is book two, entitled, The Shallow Shelf: Teatime for Toddler Fish, for ages 3- to 8-years-old, which tells the story of when Red and Ollie first met as infants.
