About Reverie Publishers:
Reverie Publishers was founded on the premise of encouraging fiction-writing in Pakistan. Already a small market, the founder noticed that publishers did not want to bet on publishing fiction and their investments tanking. Reverie also expanded into a sister label, Moringa Books, which provides a complete publishing package to writers who are willing to devote finances into their project. Editing, marketing, designing and distribution support is provided by Reverie. Through Moringa, we have published some children’s books and anthologies as well.
Reverie Publisher was founded in 2021 by Safinah Danish Elahi, a lawyer and writer, who has authored three books herself. She is passionate about literature and writing and has promoted books on a larger scale than any current publisher, including TV, newspapers, social media etc. As a result, she sees a shift in book reading and book buying in Pakistan.
