Continually striving to produce the best books in every genre from children’s fiction, to YA and adult fiction and non-fiction. We’re 100% dedicated to putting Northern Publishing on the map, and our events team work closely with Lancashire Libraries, local schools and other Publishers to create truly unique events.

Our staff our highly experienced and professional book publishers with many years in the trade behind them, many at the highest level including Waterstones Head Office, Penguin Random House, Bloomsbury and Macmillan. Therefore, our books are superb quality and our noses are commercial.

However, we also work with communities across the world including Kenya, Zambia, Greenland, The Azores Australia and Oceania, giving them a voice, and address niche’s in the book market.
