Innovative – Forward Thinking – Environmentally friendly

Publishing as it should be…

Scorpius Books is an independent and dynamic fiction publisher who love breaking the rules of publishing!

We believe great stories should be available to all, and we produce dyslexia-friendly versions of all our adult titles – the first publisher in the UK to do so!

Established in 2020 amid the COVID pandemic (which may or may not have been a good idea!!) and based in Essex, UK, we bring our extensive backgrounds in editing and design to the table, giving each book the time it deserves to bring it to life. We’re a traditional publisher who offer fair royalties and never ask for a penny from our authors in bringing a book to market.

Because Scorpius Books believes in reducing the environmental impact of the publishing industry, we take full advantage of modern printing technology and print our titles via print-on-demand services. We offer a Book Rescue, where returned books get given a new lease of life and are resold. We have commited to reducing our office paper usage by 90% by the end of 2022, only accept submissions via email and aim to plant trees to compensate for the publishing industry’s impact on the environment.

We promise to keep our submissions policy wide open to all. For more information, please see the submissions page.
