Lovely to meet you
Bluebell Books is an independent publisher of stories for children and the young at heart, based in Melbourne. We love stories that encourage people to delight in the world around them and help make it a better place.
Our debut title is Meeka.
We also curate the Top Indie Kids’ Books pilot store.
Here are some of our frequently asked questions. If you have other questions or comments, please scroll down to contact us.
Are you open for submissions?
While we would love to make oodles of books, we are a small operation and unfortunately not open for submissions from authors or illustrators.
Can you list my book in the Top Indie Kids’ Books store?
At this pilot stage, we are listing just a small selection of books by invitation and recommendation only. This may change in future.
Please note that our scope is currently limited to picture books by Australian authors who are passionate about their craft and supporting fellow creators.
Do you have any advice for other independent or self-publishers?
Keep an eye out on our blog for some reflections on the challenges and joys of indie publishing.
Do you offer manuscript assessments, school talks, workshops and so on?
Yes. Please contact us with your request.
