Fledgling Press Ltd

Fledgling Press was founded by the late Zander Wedderburn to make talented new authors available to readers quickly and effectively in a variety of formats. In September 2010 the company was restructured with a view to expanding the business and encouraging new talent in both the writing world and associated fields - namely illustration, increasing sales and enhancing company visibility. We now produce both printed books and ebooks distributed through Faber Factory.

Fledgling Press is an independent publisher based in Edinburgh, publishing historical fiction, life stories, crime fiction and young adult fiction, including award-winning authors Philip Caveney and Alex Nye. We are committed to publishing work by debut authors, emerging talent and new voices in the literary world.

We like to publish new Scottish writing talent, historically focusing on life stories, historical fiction and cookbooks but now expanded into teen novels, literary fiction and occasionally children's books. This does not preclude writers of other nationalities submitting work - we read all submissions.
