Going the whole hog


Hampress...

...is that rare thing, a flourishing electronic publisher of Shortbooks and Audiobooks. We’re always looking for new writers. So why not send us an idea? If we like it we'll publish it, and help you all the way. We'll edit, design, epub and upload your book on all major platforms, including Amazon, Apple, Kobo and Nook. Rest assured: your idea will be treated in the strictest confidence, under our Publisher's Confidentiality Agreement.

What we do:

We publish or broadcast Shortbooks of maximum 15,000 words - short enough to inspire your lunch hour and long enough to sustain a great narrative. From 2014, we began publishing Kindle Singles - selected shortbooks for Amazon's new platform.

We prefer non-fiction: history, essays, memoirs, science, biography and sometimes self-help; but we'll certainly consider novellas and short stories.

We also publish Audiobooks of classic literature, read by professional actors.

All our Shortbooks can be read on iPad or Kindle, or other mobile devices. Our web site is 'responsive' - designed to fit the shape of your device. Our books are available at all major ebook stores; our Kindle Singles can only be purchased at Amazon's Kindle Single pages; eg here and here and in other countries.

Who are we?

We're a group of writers and actors spread around the world.

We'd like to thank all our contributors, as well as:

Low Fire Danger, web developers
Xou Media, ebook designers and developers
