Austin Macauley

Here at Austin Macauley we have faith in all of our publications and treat each of them as a potential success. We are keen to open up the world of publishing at a time when many publishers are turning their backs on untried authors, and when the lure of self-publishing seems to provide writers with control, but at an exorbitant cost and with every chance of being lost in the crowd.
