About The Book Folks

We are an independent publisher of books, established in 2013, proud to produce fiction to traditional high standards in the digital age.

Our mission

We deliver readers compelling fiction at rock bottom prices whilst giving fair returns to authors. We achieve that by selling large numbers of books on Kindle.

When launched, most of our books cost just 99p /99 cents. Our standard retail price on Kindle is just £1.99 / $2.99. All our books are FREE with Kindle Unlimited and available in paperback.

We cater mostly for crime fiction, mystery and thriller readers. But please explore our other genres.

No Kindle?

Just download the FREE app. It’s really that easy.

If you read quite a bit, you should also try Kindle Unlimited to read our books. It is a subscription service but you can try it free here.

Failing that, all our books are also available in paperback from Amazon.
