About Us

Aelurus. Pronounced ‘eye-loo-rus’. At least, that’s how we pronounce it. We know – it’s a weird name that no-one can remember, pronounce, or spell. It’s a latin word for ‘cat’, hence the logo. You might have guessed, we love cats.

We’re a small publishing house based in the north-east of England. We started in 2016 and publish Fantasy and Sci-fi.  We hope you’re as captivated by our stories as much as we enjoy making them with our authors. As you’re drawn into the tales we publish, they will fill you with adrenalin as you race with our heroes, or tear at your heartstrings as you face loss at their side.

Some of our books are fast-paced, while others will grip you with intrigue and mystery. We have desolate landscapes and lush magical worlds. We have action, despair, hope and love.

In all honesty, we’re really lucky to have such a great group of authors who have chosen to work with us.

We’ve recently become a Social Enterprise, with the aim of publishing more stories where we can hear the voices of the marginalised in society. You can read more about that here.

If you’re a reader, we hope you’ll try out our books. If you’re an author, you can find our submissions page here – we accept submission from agents and directly from authors. If you’re interested in any rights, you can find information here.

You can also now purchase many of our titles directly from this website. Thanks for visiting our site. We hope you enjoy browsing.
