I have devoted 20 years to military service in the Special Operations Community.  In that time, I have encountered few individuals who exude the same values that military members hold dear.  In working with Kirstin Howgate, I found her level of professionalism to set the bar for future endeavors.  She is clear and concise, while being caring and courteous to the words that are composed.  Kirstin ensured the chapter I contributed was a stimulating and productive experience.  You do not have to wear a uniform to serve and Howgate Publishing serves those authors from the front lines with their publishing’s.

While the challenge of writing is always an edifying experience for me, the key to the overall quality of that endeavor heavily depends upon the author’s engagement with the editors and publishers. In that respect, I can describe my working relationship with Kirstin Howgate as striking the ideal balance of professional and personal. From the beginning, she was clear about the vision, format, and timeline for the project. Furthermore, she was incredibly responsive to my inquiries and provided both timely and courteous reminders that helped keep me on schedule. When I received a copy of the book after publication, I was impressed—but not at all surprised—by the quality of the binding, cover, and print. In sum, my experience with Ms. Howgate and with Howgate Publishing has become the gold standard by which I will set my expectations for a publisher going forward.

In the business of modern life, with a multitude of competing demands, the patience and gracious manner in which Kirstin Howgate engaged with me personally as I worked on my contributions to the book Military Virtues made the publishing experience both enjoyable and ultimately a successful experience for me.

I think the concept of a dedicated military publishing house has much merit.  There are many military and ex-military authors with unique experiences who find it difficult to penetrate the conventional publishing market.  Such a company will nurture those with important stories to tell.

There are very few publishers that exclusively emphasize military studies.  Hence Howgate Publishing’s exclusive concentration on military-orientated topics will fill an underrepresented area.

Important Announcement


The companies that we work with continue to plan their response to the Coronavirus.  We are very grateful that this planning has allowed us to continue with our business during this uniquely challenging time. 


Given that we do not operate from a central office, there has been no disruption to our working environment and we continue to work as usual on a number of exciting new projects for publication in 2020/21.  

The Ingram Content Group, both our printer and distributor, are fortunate to be able to ship out of a number of large facilities around the world and where one has to shut down, they will transfer orders to another.  Their market leading service has a unique role to play in their ability to support rapid, single copy order fulfilment to reduce book travel and handling.


Finally, many of our books are available in electronic format either via Ingram direct or via Amazon which will allow your education and business to continue uninterrupted.

As the British Prime Minister said recently, 'Tis the season to be jolly but also the season to be jolly careful'.


          Happy Holidays everyone
