At Iris Books we specialise in books that communicate ~ whether it’s fiction that delivers strong stories and characters to draw readers into exciting moments in history or whether it is non-fiction, that seeks to enlighten and inform. Newly created in 2016, Iris Books starts with a small but powerful list.

All of our books, whether fiction or non-fiction, are currently available in both printed format and ebooks. At present our ebooks are only available through Amazon. This may change at some future date.

We are sure that you will come back to us for more reading pleasure and we will be adding to our catalogue throughout the coming months.
