Welcome to P+H Books !
We’re a small, independent publisher with offices in Toronto, Canada and Glasgow, Scotland.
P+H Books specialise in non-fiction, particularly travel, memoir, biography and humour, for adults and children. We’ve published work by award-winning authors and writers whose work has appeared in publications from The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times and TIME to The Advocate and Cosmopolitan. We’ve also published work by activists, artists and first-time authors.
Our titles include Christina Brooks’ To Build A Vineyard (the story of a young Canadian couple who spent a decade battling fire, goats, debt and doubt in order to build their vineyard and live their dream; Aefa Mulholland’s The Scottish Ambassador, Learning How To Be Scottish in America (a hilarious travel tale in which an ex-pat Scot travels around the U.S., persuading bemused Americans to teach her how to do things they consider stereotypically Scottish); and our first children’s book, Tracy Craig’s The Mostly True Adventures of Jim Craig.
We published two short-run anthology series in 2015, Travel 6 of 1 and Childhood 6 of 1, available as individual micro-memoirs (e-books and paperbacks) and as anthologies containing all six essays. The series featured contributions from Geraldine DeRuiter (The Everywhereist, The New Yorker, Medium.com), travel writer Matthew Link (TIME, Newsweek, MSNBC, Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast, The Los Angeles Times), award-winning travel writer Aefa Mulholland (The Irish Times, The Advocate, The Miami Herald, Private Islands Magazine) screenwriter and podcaster Dennis Hensley (TV Guide, In Style, Glamour, Us, Cosmopolitan and Out), U.S. disability rights activist Hillary Savoie, award-winning author, performer and creative instigator Tania Katan, Trinidadian authors Tracy Craig and Andrew Fitt, Toronto writer Carla Wilson and English poet Sophia Blackwell (Bloodaxe Books, The Emma Press Sidekick Books, Time Out, Diva).
We have exciting titles coming in 2018, from anthologies to literary travel to memoir to graphic field guide/humour (we’re not quite sure how to categorise that one yet!)
