Where Every
Great Story Begins

About Us

Founded in 2006 and based in London, Cambridge, New York and Sharjah, Austin Macauley Publishers is an independent publishing house, bringing the book in you to the people you want to share it with.

At Austin Macauley, we believe in the free movement of writers and giving underrepresented authors the chance to highlight their books. This is why we utilise a partnership publishing model, which gives us both the opportunity to offer standard contracts at no cost and the option to offer a partnership contract. If a partnership contract is offered, you will be required to contribute financially to publishing the book, wherein we cover up to two thirds of the publication costs. We would encourage prospective authors to read through our Become an Author page, to know more about Publishing with Austin Macauley.

Diverse and Content Driven

Austin Macauley’s diverse catalogue is rich in content and genres because we understand the differences in people and cultures. From Fiction to Non-Fiction and Children’s to YA titles, readers can purchase the books they enjoy, directly from us. If you prefer audiobook or eBook, we've got you covered! Our titles are available in digital and audio format, for all our on-the-go readers!

Our titles are distributed through Ingram, Gardners, Overdrive and Findaway, to name a few, as well as booksellers such as Amazon. With accessibility becoming more important than ever, having a wide distribution channel enhances the reader’s experience of finding, ordering and receiving an Austin Macauley book around the globe.

We are proud to have been able to give back to local and international communities through donating to several charities, including the Book Trade Charity and Book Aid, as well as to a number of local schools. We continue to do this yearly.

Being able to give new writers a platform in a very competitive publishing market, is our commitment to developing the cross-culture exchange through books.
