Welcome to Louise Walters Books


I'm a reader, writer, editor and publisher. My imprint Louise Walters Books is tiny, indie, and receptive to books bigger publishers may not be able to consider. I aim to publish only the very best in adult literary and literary/commercial fiction, across all genres.

You can find out more about me and how I came to publishing here.

I recently set up a YouTube channel where you can watch my authors reading from their work. 

Please sign up to my newsletter below to keep up with news and announcements, giveaways, author interviews and other interesting stuff.

I publish up to four titles per year, currently one per season.

My autumn release will be Cath Barton's In the Sweep of the Bay. A beautifully written novella, Booker prize short-listed author Alison Moore has called it a "tender and moving  study of a marriage"... and it certainly is. 

The book will be published in paperback and ebook on Monday 23 November. There are plans afoot to also bring out an audio book, hopefully around the same time. 

Don't miss this wonderful novella. It packs a mighty emotional punch! 


And a September deal for you... Diana's Don't Think a Single Thought is a year old on Saturday 26 September. If you buy her book, in any format, from anywhere, between 1st and 24th September, you can take part in a phone-in to Diana. She will be available for 5-minute chats between 10am and 6pm on Friday 25th September. Diana was until recently Writing Magazine's agony aunt. And, if you buy the paperback from my website in September you will also receive a free copy of Writing Magazine, who have kindly agreed to provide copies for me to send with all orders of Don't Think a Single Thought during September.
