Irish Imbas Books was established in 2014 by Irish author Brian O'Sullivan and family.
We produce books based on genuine aspects of Irish culture/ mythology. We’re very strong on delivering content that’s entertaining but also culturally authentic.
At present, we mainly produce fiction (literary/ adventure/thriller/) that contains strong elements of Irish culture, folklore and mythology (although not so much that they dominate the plots). We have three independent series going; the Beara Trilogy, the Irish Woman Warrior Series and the Fionn mac Cumhaill series. The first book in the latter (FIONN: Defence of Rath Bladhma) was selected as a finalist for Mark Lawrence’s SPFBO 2016 competition (the major fantasy competition for small/independent publishers).
Whenever possible, we publish short stories, either as a single item or as part of a collection. In this regard, we also hold an annual Celtic Mythology Short Story Competition which is currently our key mechanism of getting free – but accurate – information on Celtic culture out there into the world. Over the next two years (2019/2020) we’re also hoping to produce some unique works on Irish culture/folklore as well.
Although we mostly publish and sell our books through ebookstores such as Amazon/ Kobo/ iBooks/ Barnes & Noble and so on, we also provide digital books (DRM-free) and audiobooks through our website. Hard copies are available through Amazon (Createspace) and most can be ordered through any bookshop.
