We are a creative independent publisher striving to offer our readers something a little bit different. We love to read books that are imaginative, sometimes offbeat, always original, and we’re committed to working with the writers and designers who inspire us and thus, hopefully, our readers. We work in three main areas:
Non-fiction. Producing engaging, well-written non-fiction and attractive illustrated books. With a broad range of memoir, history, arts and environment titles, we celebrate extraordinary human achievement, explore important cultural traditions and champion planet Earth and its diverse species.
Fiction. Giving a platform to the most exciting and talented new authors, especially those from Scotland and women writers. As well as some wonderful literary and historical fiction, we have now created a new imprint, Contraband, which features an eclectic range of crime, mystery and thriller writing – ranging from pacy detective stories to intriguing enigmas.
Digital publishing. We’re becoming renowned as something of an innovator in digital publishing and have worked on a range of successful mobile phone apps, including Bookspotting, Burns Night and Pandacademy.
