Urbane Publications is one of UK’s fastest growing independent publishers, committed to the discovery and publication of the books and authors you – and we – want to read.
Words and ideas have the power and potential to excite, involve, inspire – and we live them at Urbane Publications. This is a journey of discovery – finding new voices, redefining genres, and engaging with a knowledgeable, enthused and energetic group of writers and business people to publish the best books possible.
Autumn has been very busy so far so we thought we’d share with you some of our news:
She’s done it again, Gina Kirkham and her fictional sidekick Constable Mavis Upton draw in the crowds for a fun loving book launch at Waterstone’s Liverpool One. Read more here.
It is with a very heavy heart that we must share with you the sad news that writer and artist Dan Proops tragically passed away this week. As you know we were privileged to publish Dan’s debut novel A Letter From Sarah earlier this year, a stunningly original novel. Delighted with the response to Sarah, Dan was already working on his second book, and we have no doubt he would have become a writer of some renown. And deservedly so. The world has lost a wonderful creative force. We have lost a friend. Goodbye Dan, rest in peace.
