From the Publisher

Sharpe Books publishes both new and established writers. Our list of authors and estates include Clement Attlee, Saul David, Michael Jecks, Adam Zamoyski, and Peter Tonkin. Our focus is on publishing Historical Fiction, Crime/Thrillers, Biographies and History titles. As well as publishing new books, we also specialise in re-publishing and re-promoting previously published works, where rights have reverted to the author or estate.

Sharpe Books encourages brand-building and publishes a variety of series, in different genres. I would encourage anyone interested in submitting to Sharpe Books to check out some of our authors and series beforehand (such as R.N. Morris, John Pilkington, Paul Walker, JA Ironside). We regularly break books into the top 100 of Amazon and work with authors to build their profile, as well as promote and re-promote books in an ongoing way.

Should you be a more established novelist, we would be happy to chat to you about producing a series of novellas, which can work around other projects.

Thank you.

Pat Hobby: F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Other “Great” Character

Rewriting History: Why We Need A Wider Appreciation Of World War Two

Rewriting HistoryThere seems to be an increasingly alarming trend nowadays for some people to consider that the story of the Second World War was the story of the Holocaust. They may mention the Holocaust in any word association exercise with the Second World War - or posit that the Allies went to war in order to end the Holocaust. This trend is particularly taking root in the young, I ...
1066: A Game of Thrones, by Paul Bernardi

1066: A Game of Thrones, by Paul Bernardi

1066 is one of the most well-known dates in British history.

The First Day of the Dunkirk Evacuation

The First Day of the Dunkirk Evacuation

King George VI and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, carrying their gas masks, went to a special service in Westminster Abbey. Churchill also arrived, explaining that he could only stay for ten minutes. The government had, in their very English way, managed to avoid an official day of prayer, in case it smacked of desperation, but still knew that the churches around the nation could be ...
