About Us

Ex Fleet street journalist and national newspaper editor John Blake has been publishing books for more than ten years. John Blake Publishing Ltd. specialises in high profile, mass-market non-fiction. Our commissioning criterion is: could it be a bestseller? It is this attitude that has allowed us to grow into the major force in British publishing that we are now.

The bulk of our output centres on the biography and true crime lists, including the phenomenally successful true crime library and 'hard men' series of books, as well as the ever-popular stars, media & sports personality titles.

John Blake Publishing books are regular features in the bestseller lists. From the publishing phenomenon that was Being Jordan by Katie Price to Neil Simpson's best-selling biography of Paul O'Grady; from Noel Botham's Book of Useless Information to Kate Kray and David Bailey's Diamond Geezers, ours are books that people want to read.

In recent years we have acquired the Metro list which has diversified our output even more. Our collection of health, lifestyle, cookery and mind, body, spirit books are second to none.

John Blake Publishing is an independent publishing company and prides itself on being innovative and creative, and we're always looking for ground-breaking new ideas to enhance our readers' experience.
