Where is Bombadil Publishing?

A wonderful illustrator, Peter John Herron, has created an illustration to where we are in the form of a map of Scotland, with Dornie clearly marked, and a further map of Dornie showing where we are. Dornie is not very big, so we could be found without a map, but the illustration is beautiful and welcoming. Thank you Peter John Herron for your wonderful map.

Upcoming online collaboration platform

Bombadil Publishing frequenters know what our core is all about: helping young people write, without blocking creativity. And many know how we do that: by guiding the creative process through mentors rather than editors.

This approach has proven to be successful; over the past few years over sixty books written by young people have been published by Bombadil, and many more manuscripts are in the making but haven't reached the publishing stage yet. However, the process also requires a lot of manual input from the side of the authors, mentors, and Bombadil Publishing, due to the fact that many tasks,...

The Genius Disease

Because there’s a cure for everything Ava MacKinnon “Loser ” is just another one of the name’s I was called every day It’s up there with “nerd” and “fat”. But out of all my many labels.
