Press Release – Mercier Press announces decision to publish fiction.

Ireland’s oldest independent publishing house, Mercier Press has announced that it is to re-commence publishing fiction. The company has a long history of publishing successful authors in the fiction genre including John B. Keane, Terry Prone, Alan Early and E.R. Murray. Over the years a number of Mercier titles have been made into movies, the best known being The Field and Durango, with more recent titles such as The Book of Learning being optioned.

Managing Director Mary Feehan said, ‘Fiction is a very popular genre, but, it is also the most competitive.  The Irish fiction market is dominated by UK publishers and Mercier wanted to give aspiring authors an Irish platform to bring their work into the public domain.’

In recent years the company has only published children’s fiction. However, Mercier will publish three fiction titles in 2018, The Book of Revenge by E.R. Murray, Cethan Leahy’s Tuesdays Are Just As Bad and The All-Ireland by Tadhg Coakley. 

Writers that are interested in submitting their manuscripts for consideration will find the details on
