Independent Publishers (UK)

Each month based on a book I’ve bought I’ll post a feature on a particular publisher. As that would take an age to grow the list, I’ll also add details of publishers as I come across them to build a list of UK Independent Publishers.  Click the name to go directly to their website, click the link to go to my feature.
