Information for Authors



Please be aware that we are a small and therefore specialised firm.

We originate most titles in-house, and take on very few unsolicited manuscripts.

We currently publish books about Cornwall, Devon and the West Country in general. Most of our titles are of interest first and foremost to tourists. If they are of practical use to the tourist, such as guide books or walks books, so much the better.

If you are working on something you think might suit us, e-mail us at:


 giving us a brief outline of your project, or write to us at:

Bossiney Books Ltd
68 Thorndale Courts, Whitycombe Way, Exeter, EX4 2NY

If you have a completed manuscript, DON'T SEND IT! Contact us first.

Please note that we never publish poetry or fiction, even about the South-west,

nor do we publish children's books.
