About us

Odyssey Books is committed to publishing engaging and beautifully written books. Books that stretch the imagination, challenge pre-existing attitudes and beliefs, or take readers to far-flung climes. Books are always a journey. And as our name suggests, we invest in epic journeys, adventurous voyages and intellectual or spiritual quests. Readers are sure to find a book within our range of titles to challenge, inspire and entertain.

Authors will discover that we at Odyssey Books understand the synergy that exists between an author and their works. Like all publishers, we invest in books. And we foster that investment through our long-term commitment to our authors. Writers know that the creative journey can be as long and uncertain as it is exciting. We travel alongside all our authors, offering guidance and encouragement along the way. For Odyssey, each new release is a collaboration, and we value highly the thoughts, wishes and dreams of our authors.

If you would like to work with us on your voyage to publication, please visit our Submissions page. Authors accepted for publishing by Odyssey Books will be offered a royalty-paying contract. We don’t charge the author for publication with Odyssey.

Custom publishing

Do you get excited about DIY? We also have a custom publishing studio, for those authors who embrace a DIY ethos but want an experienced companion to join them on their journey. This is separate to our traditional publishing program, and is a fee-for-service offering. Please visit www.odysseypublishing.com for more information.
