An independent publisher in London. We publish ballsy memoirs and racy anthologies. Our goal is to support exceptional writers so readers can find bold life stories (and that other stuff they call fiction) in the marketplace. 


We are delighted to announce our Pitch Your Book course is open for registration. It's a 4-week online course that runs from 9 to 30 Jan 2023. For details, please visit our Coaching page.

We're also delighted to announce an open call for submissions for our upcoming tattoo anthology.


Open from 1 November 2022 to 1 February 2023.

We are seeking fiction, nonfiction and poetry on the theme of TATTOOS.


It could be about one tattoo, or many tattoos, or any angle you'd like to take. Any genre is fine although we love real stories so memoir is very welcome but send whatever you like.

Recent Release: The Peanut Factory by Deborah Price

The Peanut Factory Guts Publishing.jpg

“A window into a time of raw energy and rough edges, Deb Price paints a vivid picture of life in the squats of South London. By turns amusing and alarming, but always engaging, we accompany a teenager as she navigates her way to womanhood in a sub-culture on the margins.” — Allie Rogers, author of Little Gold and Tale of a Tooth

"Enjoyed the book. It really took me back to those days. I'd go back in a flash if offered, sod all this smart tech garbage, gimme an afternoon pulling pints in the Gloucester followed by a nap in front of the TV blaring out the Crossroads theme." — Captain Sensible, The Damned

"Telling journal about the London squat scene in the post punk era. Compelling and disturbing in equal measure — especially the outside toilets." — Jim Tavaré, comedian, actor and musician
