Working with writers, editing their work, and listening to their ‘publishing’ experience were the reasons Footprints Publishing was established. It was apparent that confusion and complexity was a common experience. It was time to end the confusion and simplify the process.

To date, we have published fiction and non-fiction, children’s picture books, memoirs, historical fiction based on true characters and contemporary fiction.

Our speciality – good stories that will inspire the reader, provide enjoyment and possibly an escape route.

Perhaps you have already started writing and need guidance or you have written your story and don’t know what to do next. Fact or fiction, Footprints Publishing is here to guide you and assist you to achieve your book dream.

Reach out to us, we enjoy hearing from you
