Black & White Publishing was founded in 1999 by Managing Director Campbell Brown and Publishing Director Alison McBride. Since then, the business has grown into one of Scotland’s leading independent publishers with over 300 books in print across a variety of genres. Committed to publishing the best books from the most talented writers in the UK and beyond, some of our bestselling authors include Daniela Sacerdoti, James Robertson, Estelle Maskame, Ann O’Loughlin, Richard Gordon, Alex Norton, Millie Gray, Sally Magnusson and Tony Black. We produce an extensive range of titles, including general non-fiction, biography, sport and humour, as well as selected fiction, young adult and children’s books.
We have had a wonderful time this spring and summer publishing novels like the sumptuous historical novels On Starlit Seas by Sara Sheridan and The Dolocher by Caroline Barry, Ann O’Loughlin’s gripping new novel The Judge’s Wife, the suspenseful and moving The Last Day I Saw Her by Lucy Lawrie, Irish author and actress Caroline Grace-Cassidy’s The Week I Ruined My Life, charming rom-com Chasing Charlie by Linda McLaughlan, the absorbing Dancing to the End of Love by Adrian White and Daniela Sacerdoti’s latest Glen Avich novel Don’t Be Afraid. We are currently very busy expanding our fiction and Young Adult list.
Also on our spring/summer programme were the fabulous crime and psychological thrillers Willow Walk by SJI Holliday, gothic ghost story Abigale Hall by Lauren A. Forry, chilling revenge thriller Blood for Blood by JM Smyth, and we are very much looking forward to Tony Black’s latest DI Bob Valentine novel Summoning the Dead.
And last but certainly not least, the highly anticipated third volume of Estelle Maskame’s Young Adult trilogy Did I Mention I Miss You? (DIMIMY) was published end of July to much excitement from her legion of fans – young as well as ‘mature’ 😉 Estelle’s young adult trilogy has gone from strength to strength, and is now available in 12 major territories across the world so far. Estelle was the winner of the Young Scot Arts Award 2016 and was also a finalist in the Romantic Novelist’s Association Awards for the Young Adult Category. Watch out for a new stand alone YA novel from Estelle in 2017!
On our non-fiction list, we’ve had fantastic fun publishing Library Cat – the witty, wondrous and wonderful observations and philosophical musings of Library Cat as told by Edinburgh University PhD student and author, Alex Howard. And here in September, we’ll also see the publication of Rabbit Warren Peace – a quirky and wonderful book which combines Tolstoy’s pithy words with original photos throughout of rabbits in costume-made outfits.
