We are SRL Publishing. A small but motivated award-winning company based in Hertfordshire, who believe passionately in the power of reading.
We have a huge environmental ethos, we have raised and donated enough funds to Rainforest Trust UK to help save over 500,000 trees in Peru from deforestation. We have also recently become supporters of Ecologi, where we have helped plant over 6,000 trees in Madagascar, and sequestered over 110 tonnes of Carbon emissions through various projects in Haiti, Istanbul and Uruguay.
Our strap line is Breaking The Silence, and we aim to do just that. We are all too familiar with the issues in today’s society and the stigma that surrounds. We want to publish not just great books, but great books that help. Books that tackle the tough issues, books to open up difficult conversations and books to help bring people together.
All of our books and authors are enormously special to us in their own, individual way. We believe that a story can evoke a large range of emotions; they can make you cry, make you laugh and, most importantly, change a life. Unlike some independent publishing houses, we pride ourselves on giving ambitious new authors the chance that is so rarely available in the publishing industry today.
My name is Stuart Debar, and I founded SRL Publishing about five years ago. Having been in the working environment since I was around twelve, I always wanted to have my own business. I did launch one when I was around fourteen, but here I am now - and I actually have a business.
My company has helped save over 500,000 trees from deforestation - something which I'm incredibly proud of. We have also won some awards, including three One Planet Awards, a CEO Today Magazine award and a Green Apple Award.
