Irish Imbas Books was established in 2014 by Irish author Brian O'Sullivan and family.
We produce books based on genuine aspects of Irish 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 two independent series going; the Beara Trilogy and the Fionn mac Cumhaill series. The first book in the latter (FIONN: Defence of Rath Bladhma) was recently 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 year (2017) 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.
