About Us

Philip Garside Publishing Limited commenced operations and was registered as a New Zealand private limited company in 1997. Our company is owned and operated by Philip & Heather Garside.

Our Services

Since 1999, we have published many New Zealand non-fiction print books, mainly on progressive/liberal Christian, social justice/history and pacifist topics.

We now also produce and help you to market eBooks and print books. We are keen to publish books of worship resources by NZ authors.

We produce small print runs via print-on-demand through Printing.com here in Wellington.

We also sell other publisher’s books, magazines/periodicals and CDs.

Submitting your book idea to us

Proposals for new are welcome.

We are also happy to discuss re-releasing as eBooks, books previously published in print.

Please see the Publish Your Book With Us page for guidelines and advice on submitting books to us.
