Loose Cannon Press

We publish mostly our own stuff - travel books, novels and the occasional technical work - but we are open to helping our elder citizens to record their memoirs, memories and biographies. Amadou Hampate Ba of Mali famously said: "When an old person dies, a library burns." Perhaps we can be the sprinkler system?


We believe that every one of us has a story to tell, but we also understand that the gulf between the words in the mind and the finished book is often daunting. That's why we offer services in all aspects of the preparation of the printed word, from manuscript to finished book.


Self-publishing is an excellent way to get your story out. If fact, it's sometimes a bit too easy. That's why we are sticklers for quality control; our aim is to help in a small way to raise standards.
