Walela Books CafeLit (Gold Star Program) Gold Star

Walela is the Cherokee word for hummingbird.

A quote from one of the authors from our other imprints:

"Hummingbirds are small but eye catching.

They’re colourful.

They’re a diverse group.

Everyone loves a hummingbird!"

We're a small press but distinctive and we aim to offer something diverse and colourful that everyone will love.

We have identified a gap in the market for high concept, upmarket literary fiction that really deserves to be published but doesn’t quite fit with current trends of the bigger presses.

Walela Books will open its submission window later this year, following the release of their first novel in the autumn
