Sarnia House is a small family business established in 2019 to publish non-fiction books.

As a ‘micro’ publisher it was formed initially to publish texts by its founders, Colin de la Rue and his daughter May; but it plans to give a voice to others as well, making the most of advantages which small independents enjoy.

Our focus is influenced by Colin’s experience of legal publishing, as a practising lawyer writing, editing and promoting professional texts. A particular goal is publication of print books produced to high standards with similar attention to detail.

While our approach has some things in common with self-publishing, our emphasis is not on publishing by authors but on teamwork between them and industry professionals.

We operate through the usual book data and trade distribution channels – further information can be seen under Books.
