Eye Books is a small, independent publisher founded in 1996 with the aim of publishing books about the extraordinary things ordinary people have done: everyday people who decide to stop talking about their dreams and actually go out and grab them. There is usually a strong travel element to their stories.

Lightning Books is a new independent publisher founded in 2015 with the aim of creating a process to allow authors and publishers to work better together and give authors the chance to earn up to 50% royalties.

Eye Books & Lightning Books have agreed to work in association together. Eye Books is offering Lightning Books access to their 20+ year history and infrastructure in return for having exclusive access to Lightning Books proprietary publishing process for non-fiction they publish. Lightning Books will publish fiction using their proprietary process and have access to the Eye Books infrastructure.

Like our writers, we passionately believe that the more you put into life, the more you get out of it. We also know that it isn’t easy to stop what you know and start what you don’t know. Through the books we publish we hope to inform, educate, motivate and inspire our readers to be able to let go and do what they think they can’t do, however big or small. We believe that by challenging the way we see things, we can evolve and grow and hope the books – both fiction and non-fiction – help readers achieve this.

We are always keen to add like-minded individuals to our team. We need freelancers who are skilled and committed: people who think they understand what it is that makes Eye Books special. Jobs could include providing editorial support, proofreading, working on cover designs or typesetting.

If you would like to be involved, please contact us and share what you feel you can bring to the party.
