he Independent Publishers' Alliance was set up in 2013 by Honest Publishing, and quickly joined by Bluemoose Books, Pighog Press, Reality Street, Shearsman Books, Nightjar Press, Murder Slim Press, Etruscan Books and Unthank Books. The publishers in the alliance are proud to share the ethos of publishing original, innovative writing.
What do we stand for? We stand for true independent publishing and we aim to publish the best, and sometimes unheralded, talent from around the world.
Through combined marketing and promotion, the Independent Publishers' Alliance aims to combine the reach of its members, ensuring their literature is accessible and known to all.
Keep an eye out for our titles at your local bookshop or library and help keep the spirit of the independent alive.

CHICKENS' LIB is about passion, conviction and how two women, Clare Druce and her mother Violet Spalding, were driven to highlight the intolerable and cruel conditions on Britain's factory farms.
In 2012, Murder Slim Press received an unsolicited submission called "Prison Prose" from a notorious bank robber named Jeffrey Frye.
