About The Book Folks

We are an independent publisher of books, proud and excited to be part of the new wave of publishing which is transforming how books are produced and sold.

THE BOOK FOLKS meets the growing demand for a serious and clued up approach to publishing in the digital age. We focus on Kindle, but all new titles are also sold in beautiful paperback editions.

Why publish with us?

We produce books to the highest standard and our marketing gets them into the right readers’ hands. We manage everything from the editing process to promotions, social media publicity and building an audience for authors.

Authors receive royalties directly on sales revenue and will never be asked for money to publish their work.

Using our contacts we get your book out there high in the bestseller rankings and significant revenue in your bank.

If you have a novel you think we should see, visit our submissions page.
