Fiercely Independent Publishing with Louise Walters – Joined Up#138


Subscribe to the newsletter for free stuff and bonus content here.

It’s episode 138 with Louise Walters, writer and creator of the small but fiercely independent Louise Walters Books. Louise recently let rip with an honest and heartfelt blog post about the realities and struggles faced by small indie publishers. I’ll be diving into that and also asking Louise about her own books and road to publication.

Louise is a working class writer, editor and publisher. Her first novel ‘Mrs Sinclair’s Suitcase’ was published by Hodder in 2014. In 2017, Louise founded Louise Walters Books and has independently published several great books from new authors, as well as putting out two more of her own, the latest being The Road To California. You can find that and loads of other good fiction over at
