Blue Door Press is an imprint for literary fiction, memoir, non-fiction and poetry: a book-loving community that we invite you to be part of.  As an alternative to mainstream publishing, we can take control of producing and marketing books we believe in. Blue Door Press was officially launched on 14 September 2016. We celebrated with a party at the Seven Dials Club, Covent Garden, in London. You can read about that celebration and meet the founding authors  in our News section, here.  You can read articles and reviews, here.
