Can I ask you about how to set up my own publishing house?

If you would like to talk to us about setting up your own publishing house, first take a really good look around this website – including all the interviews on the About page – and the Emma/Valley Press blog. Then, if you have any questions left to ask, feel free to email Emma on hello [at] theemmapress [dot] com

Check out our Events page for all of our upcoming events, or subscribe to our monthly newsletter for regular updates. If you would like to book an event with us or our poets, drop us an email at hello [at] theemmapress [dot] com

Are you looking for cover designers or illustrators?

Emma designs and illustrates all the books herself (with the occasional exception), partly to keep the style consistent across the list and partly to keep costs down. So, right now we are not looking for cover designers and illustrators. If we decide to hire any illustrators for future projects, we will do a shout-out in our monthly newsletter and on social media, so keep an eye on those if you like what we do.

Are your books available as ebooks?

They are! You can buy them exclusively from our webshop here. We make them ourselves, so not all of our titles are available yet, but they soon will be. They are DRM-free and each purchase comes with a MOBI file for Amazon devices and an EPUB file for all the rest. They won’t be delivered directly to your devices, because we’re not terrifying omnipresent digital giants, but once you’ve downloaded them you can put them on all your devices, like you actually own them.

Do you deliver books overseas?

Yes, we do. When you’re at the checkout in our webshop, please select the international shipping option. EU customers please beware the new VAT rules after Brexit! We aren’t able to predict duties that might be placed on your books, so please be aware of that before you order. More info on shipping here.
