Tommies Guides are a dedicated WW1 & WW2 bookseller and publisher. Run by MD Ryan Gearing, a publishing graduate with over 15 years experience within the booktrade and design & print industries, who has a passion for military history and regularly tours the First World War battlefields of Flanders and the Normandy Beach-heads. As a member of The Royal British Legion, The Last Post Association, The Western Front Association, UKNDA and The Guild of Battlefield Guides our expertise, contacts and professionalism stands out from the general trade.
We typically offer print on demand / subscription-based publishing services to authors whose passion has been to compile a labour of love and wish to see it in print. Regimental associations, museums, tour guides, armchair generals, genealogists and historians can all benefit from our experience and contacts.
Our clients include: armed service veterans, historians, family relatives of veterans, tour guides and museums.
For that special title we are happy to work with authors to reach a suitable agreement above and beyond our standard service terms.
Our services include full design and print, editing, grammar, marketing and international distribution.
Like-minded contacts to share advice and experiences. Tommies Guides are relatively new and I am looking to build our portfolio. If anyone has manuscripts or contacts that don't suit I'd be willing to follow up as appropriate.
If any publishers wish to purchase rights for overseas editions or for use in film/tv, serialisation etc please get in touch.
