In 2014, Dustin Ray Shannon and Faith Dincolo collaborated with Arcadia Publishing to create "Images of America: Saline County Kansas." The book's success spurred residents of Wichita to encourage Dustin to write a photographic history of Joyland amusement park. Inspired by this support, Dustin embarked on the project, resulting in the publication of the book in September 2015. The book was a hit, selling hundreds of copies. In 2023, Dustin released a final edition, featuring an updated layout and two new chapters on the Central Avenue and Mathewson Lane Joyland, as well as the Joyland Park Gunfighters.

After the success of the Joyland book, Dustin turned his attention to the Joyland Park Gunfighters, publishing a novel titled "Whispers of the Prairie: The Chico Chronicles," set in a ghost town. Building on this momentum, he founded a subsidiary to publish historical books, both fiction and non-fiction. In May 2024, Shannon Publishing will continue its journey by releasing new titles.
