Welcome to Pen Coed Publishing

Welcome to our new website - we have tried to make it easier to find the books you want, to find out about our authors, and to contact us about our Book Editing service.

From July 2020, we are publishing a monthly Newsletter with news, features on individual books, and "How to" pointers on writing non-fiction. 

We have a new format for our blogs on anything to do with WRITING so maybe we can see some of your own work in the future!

Time for a Virtual Book Fair

As we are still in some form of lock-down in 2020, many events have been cancelled including Book Fairs.


Instead of meeting up with you all, talking about the books and answering questions, (as well as taking card payments of course!) we will have to rely on our Virtual Book Fair.


So, look through the individual book pages which include  details about how to order, sign up for the Newsletter, and also use the Contact Form to ask any questions.
