About Mayside Books ™

Book Publishers Since 1997


Mayside Books ™, formerly the Origin of Books ™, is an Imprint of WireNews Limited. We publish books from time to time; it’s not our primary interest so we’re not out actively soliciting manuscripts. We consider every book idea that comes our way so if you’ve been turned down by ‘other’ book publishers, give us a shout — we might just be interested. It’s unlikely that we will get into a ‘bidding war’ with another publisher so if you have an offer, take it. If, however, you’ve got a great idea for a book and you’re hitting roadblocks in your quest to find a publisher, contact Mayside Books ™.

Mayside Books ™ is owned by WireNews Limited, a subsidiary of Mayside Partners Limited, a venture capital company based in Scotland.

Our standard agreement is as follows: 1. We cover all publishing and distribution costs; 2. We pay up to a 50% royalty on all books sales (after direct distribution costs); 3. We own all future rights to that edition/version; and 4. We will make a royalty advance for deserving books, so don't be afraid to ask. Just be prepared to make your case.
