PublishBritannica publishes books in the best tradition of old-fashioned quality publishing. For too long, "establishment" publishers have ignored the potential and the quality of many writers who, therefore, never got an opportunity to share their work with an audience. As a result, most writers' books have never seen the light of day. Some undiscovered writers felt forced to self-publish their books, or to pay large sums of money to subsidy houses. PublishBritannica believes that this is wrong.

The company is opposed to charging any author fees, ever. Instead, we pay our authors, period. We even pay them a small advance, to underscore that the publisher, not the author, underwrites the expense of publishing a new book. Its founders decided that a well-written book is worth publication if the author can convince them that there are at least the seeds of a market out there, and that the author's talent holds a promise for the future.

They are the great creative force that has carried and lifted Britain's imagination into the new millennium. Writers are artists with a mission and a message. They knew who their readership would be while they were conceiving their book. They had and have a dream, and PublishBritannica provides the field where those dreams will grow and bear fruit, and where the people will come that the authors had in mind.

Taking full advantage of the latest printing technology before anybody else did, the company can afford to sell all copies of a book on a non-returnable basis. Consequently, no book is ever wasted now that each copy can be printed in accordance with public demand. PublishBritannica is also taking full advantage of modern book distribution channels. All of our titles are available through all of the U.K.'s major bookstores, many independent bookstores, and through online vendors at home and abroad. Additionally, the books are also available to bookstores in the United States, Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain.

PublishBritannica is part of an international book publishing conglomerate, spanning the North Atlantic, with presences in the United States, Scandinavia, and on the European mainland. World headquarters are located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, in Maryland, USA.

The company is headquartered in Milton Keynes, midway between Birmingham and London.
