If your shop is closed but you are still taking orders to post out, we can send them for you if you order direct. We would apply your normal discount, plus £2 p&p, but with free postage for orders over £15 (retail value)

Trade and Muddy Pearl

Muddy Pearl is an independent publisher based in Edinburgh, a member of the Publishing Scotland community. We publish high quality general market gift books, books on family and relationships, fiction, and Christian spirituality, theology and faith. We love discovering new writers and working with them to make their book the best it can possibly be. We may be small, but we have a growing reputation in editorial, design and production.

We love bookshops and working with you to connect readers and authors in creative ways. Before the pandemic we regularly held launches in bookshop – Blackwells and Foyles, Faith Mission and GLO – and are looking forward to the day we can do that again. Do please get in touch, either with your rep or ourselves, if you would like to host an event or do a special promotion of some kind.

Also it is worth saying we do try to keep that playing field level. Although we do sell direct, we don’t discount on our website except in very special circumstances. We don’t deal direct with Amazon, nor do we enable preferential discounts to online retailers.

International Publishers

We are an independent publisher of Christian books, founded in 2013 and based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Our editorial policy is to invest in developing new authors and to produce books to a high standard. We aim to appeal to a fairly broad readership and we produce books that are true to Scripture and to the Spirit. We would love to hear from you.

In Australia most of our books are available at Koorong, and also some via MediaCom. If you would be interested in becoming a trade customer please do get in touch.


Translation rights

We are keen to work with other like-minded publishers from around the world. As a rights-based publisher we have sold German, Spanish, Indonesian and Dutch rights to date, and have translated books from German into English.

We attend the London Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair when they are operational, and often visit other fairs.
