Who we are

Mereworth Publishing is a micro publisher for small print-run book projects, based in Edinburgh. Our name is a tribute to the tiny Kentish village, once surrounded by strawberry fields and hop garden poles, between Sevenoaks and Maidstone, where our co-founders first lived together. Our aim is to publish interesting and well-written printed books and ebooks that are of specialist and often limited interest.Our small team has over 40 years of experience as professional writers and editors, and we use freelance sub-editors and designers to create our books. Our co-founder Kenny Kemp is one of the UK’s leading ghost-writers and non-fiction authors. He was co-winner of the WH Smith Business Book of the Year in 2004.

What we do

We are available for commissions to write, edit, design and publish a small selection of English-language books and ebooks in the UK and Europe.


We are always delighted to sell our books through independent bookshops, but we are building our publishing business mainly through our online transactions. We welcome commercial orders from booksellers, so apply for rates and drop us an email. We are currently building our list of titles with several interesting projects in the pipeline. So please keep in touch to watch how we develop.
