Why Publish with Us

Specialist military publisher

We make it our business to fully understand your field and your specific target audiences.


Completely independent

This means that we are a privately-owned company with complete control over our publishing process and marketing strategy which underpins our policy of a bespoke author experience.  As we are financed independently, we invest directly in your success. 

Tightly focused publishing list

Publishers often classify books into ‘key titles’ followed by ‘everything else’ and then devote their time and marketing budget accordingly.  This doesn’t happen at Howgate Publishing.

Concentration of expertise

As an author, you should feel that every book is being dealt with by someone with the appropriate expertise and experience.  As such, we have hand-picked our team to ensure you have experienced support at every level.

Ability to nurture your story

We strongly believe that you and your book are unique and that success lies in a strong author-publisher relationship.  For authors both new and established, we guide you through our simple publishing process and work hard to build an enduring relationship.

Adding value to your work

Entrusting us with your research is a privilege; therefore, as standard, we incorporate a thorough peer review process and proofread.

Quality over quantity

We are committed to publishing the best books available on military-orientated topics.  We have also invested a considerable amount of time in sourcing the best cover designers, production teams and printing companies.  We know that you will rely on our having a solid reputation.

Intelligent marketing

This can be summed up in one word: relevance.  All of our marketing is customized and targeted, based on our extensive knowledge of the military.  We work closely with individual authors to ensure that we reach your relevant audience.

Real competitive advantage

You may need only this one reason to publish with us.  We are able to publish top quality books, specifically marketed to your target audience, in paperback and with a price tag suited to your market.

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
