Longstone BOOKS
Welcome to Longstone Books. We are an independent publisher, committed to publishing new writing which has something worthwhile to communicate about the diverse and complex world we live in.

writing for real
We look for writing which helps us understand ourselves and the world better and draws on our ability to empathise. Stories - real and fictional - that have the power to move and inspire.

Our writers explore themes of belonging and displacement, identity and commitment across a range of cultures and life conditions. Through the lens of individual memoirs we get a vivid sense of other times, other places. Those writing for children do so unsentimentally, capturing a child’s perspective, with no ‘talking down’.
