Watch Founder & President Rebekah Borucki’s live interview on Bloomberg’s Quicktake with Madison Mills. Listen to how Row House Publishing is disrupting the industry and raising the volume on voices that matter through transparency and equity-based contracts.
Our mission is to create an equitable publishing model that represents the values and diversity of the authors and audience we embrace.
In 2020, it became clear that there was no publisher equally committed to supporting authors while also honoring antiracist and inclusive principles. Row House is creating a new model that supports authors from diverse backgrounds—ethnic, racial, economic, orientation, and identification—from day one.
Row House is also building a community of authors committed to supporting each other and making a positive impact. Our books span many genres, from personal development to adult trade to children’s literature.
We’re more than halfway to our big $900,000 fundraising goal, and we’d love to welcome you to the Row House family of investors!
We raised a whopping $300,000 in our first round, and we’re on our way to making the next $600,000 goal. Find out how you can own a piece of Row House for as little as $300!

In October 2020, Kristen McGuiness sent an unassuming text to her friend, Rebekah — “Time to start your own publishing house?” Neither of them could have imagined that in fewer than six months, they would have formed a sales and distribution partnership with a “Top 5” publishing, signed six authors, and raised nearly half a million dollars through a grassroots crowdfunding campaign.
Rebekah “Bex” Borucki (she/they) is a mother-to-five, self-help and children’s author, and the Founder and President of Row House, Wheat Penny Press (Row House’s children’s imprint), and the WPP Little Readers Big Change Initiative. Since 2009, Rebekah has run an online wellness advocacy space through her BexLife platform. She has also served on the Yoga Alliance Equity Task Force and as a mentor for Hay House’s Diverse Wisdom Initiative.
