Indeed, we have the pre-eminent saga publishing programme in the UK, but we are also leaders in compelling crime fiction, women’s fiction, heartbreaking sagas, historical novels, pacey thrillers and speculative tales.
Our non-fiction paperback list explores a wide spectrum of popular narrative subjects across almost every genre, including autobiography and memoir, sport, politics, business, biography, travel, military history, humour, gift and true crime. Our books offer new ways of looking at different times, places and people and appeal to both international and UK readers.
