Formed in 2010, English Rose Publishing set out with a mission to bring high quality, beautifully designed and well-formatted books onto bookshelves around the world. Frustrated by the lack of quality out there, at the lack of imagination and foresight of many publishers and editors, we decided that we would create the books which we really wanted to, ourselves. We are avid readers and book lovers ourselves, and want to see every book we publish loved and appreciated.
English Rose is a publishing company with a difference. We are all different in our own way, but English Rose thrive on our differences, we like to break with tradition, experiment, try things differently and we never follow the status quo. We are willing to take risks, publish interesting but obscure titles (the more obscure the better sometimes!) and absolutely everything we do is done with passion, understanding, belief and hope.
English Rose was set up in order to create books which we can honestly and confidently put our names to and be proud of. We hate errors and love quality. Picky you might call us, perfectionists we certainly are. It’s because we care so much about every book. We notice and are infuriated by mistakes, because they are so unnecessary. Every English Rose book is carefully proofread and edited, typeset and formatted, and put together with the utmost care and consideration. Every cover is uniquely designed and crafted in order to create a book which is visually pleasing and relevant. At English Rose we believe that every book is unique. We treat every title with the greatest respect and admiration (because we could never write anything as great ourselves!) and always ensure that every one of our creations is carefully put together, beautiful to look at and professionally printed. So, whether it be a novel, romance, children’s book or collection, an old classic revived or a brand new commission, we guarantee that every English Rose book will be professional and distinctive.
In our early days we started off by republishing a great children’s book, which had unfortunately been forgotten about over the years (which is a massive shame because it’s great!). We then moved on to some other really interesting and unique titles, titles which interest us, and will hopefully interest other avid readers around the world. We hope to carry on producing special and interesting books and have many other titles already in production. We have hopes for a huge series of children’s picture books, books which are clever, funny, beautiful and inspiring and which will make you think and want more. Some of our titles currently ‘in the pipeline’ include a magnificent first novel with a twist and a fantastic children’s picture book by a new author which will knock your socks off! Because of our desire to see as many new books published as easily as possible, we would love to see what you have to offer. We hope to be able to publish some fantastic new authors in the months to come. Yes, it’s going to be a rollercoaster ride, but who wants mundane... Oh and please join us for the ride.
