At Urbane Publications we love books. We know you do too. Join us and dive into some extraordinary words.
Words always 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 to publish the best books possible. Publishing isn’t simply about creating a range of bland, risk-averse shelf-fillers – readers deserve more than that – and authors deserve the originality of their stories to be championed.
Urbane was founded in 2014 and we’ve published over 150 titles since then, with our books available in all good bookshops – and, we hope, to be found in lots of to be read piles! In 2018 we will be focusing our commissioning and publishing on crime fiction and thrillers, contemporary and women’s fiction and literary fiction, as well as developing a brand new and very exciting business imprint. Do take the time to look through our titles, we’re sure you’ll find a treasure or two. These are books that reflect innovative and challenging work, but are also written to entertain, enthral and engage and our greatest measure of success is when you, the reader, discover a new idea or a writer you enjoy.
